Hungarian photojournalist, André Kertész took to the streets in Budapest using everyone present as covert audiences and unwitting performers. Here is “Circus” from SAMA’s permanent collection. Unaware of Kertész, the two depicted peer through a small hole to see an unseen circus.

Did you know SAMA is lucky enough to have a piece by the iconic Andy Warhol in our permanent collection? Here is “Grace Kelly” —it does not disappoint using Warhol’s usual garish colors and deliberate imperfections.

Think you're a perfectionist? Did you know the American painter, Walt Kuhn, took this to another level completely? Kuhn destroyed any painting that did not meet his own EXACT standards. We have Kuhn's "Acrobat" in our permanent collection, a watercolor on paper from 1926, a gift of the Frank and Margaret Sullivan Fund.

We've made it to Wednesday! Here is a piece from our permanent collection entitled "Carnival." Yasuo Kuniyoshi's style was based on European modernism, American realism and his own sense of whimsy. This particular piece has somber tones that counter the festive images evoked by the title having been created in the years following WWII | "Carnival" 1949 -Gift of Gerald P. and Aline D.

I am loving this piece from the late Barbara Strank Zivkovich entitled "905 Broad Street"
Zivkovich was a native of Franklin Borough in Johnstown, primarily a water colorist. Her compositions celebrated the region's coal and steel industry. Many of her works belong to our permanent collection gifted to us by her and her estate. Zivkovich's work was just taken back to our permanent collection after being displayed here in Johnstown from May until this past Saturday.
