In 1982, SAMA continued its expansion platform when it moved into the Central Park Commons building in Downtown Johnstown. After a little more than a decade, SAMA’s presence in the Johnstown community moved uptown, and the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Johnstown took root in the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. In partnership with the University, SAMA-Johnstown develops an exhibition calendar designed to enhance the university experience and the cultural environment of the region.
