Give the Gift of Art


It's the smallest gift with the biggest impact—you're giving someone access to a world of art.

Your gift of a SAM Membership not only will provide your friend or loved one with fantastic benefits for 12 months, but you will feel good knowing you are supporting arts in our community. Multiple museum closures during the pandemic had a significant impact on our financial stability, and your membership gift will make it possible for us to remain a vibrant center for the arts in our community.
