welcome to the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art

The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art (SAMA) is a community art museum founded in 1976. SAMA successfully operates the nation’s longest-running museum satellite system with five museum facilities in the central and southwestern Pennsylvania cities of Altoona, Bedford, Johnstown, Ligonier and Loretto. The Museum maintains a permanent collection of more than 4,500 works by local, regional, national and international artists. SAMA’s five museums offer award-winning education programs, special events, and approximately three dozen exhibitions annually. Be sure to visit our newest museum in Bedford's historic Anderson House - grand opening preview on May 3!
