Our Arts for Healing program with Conemaugh Health System was put on hold due to the pandemic so we went virtual this year.

We would like to dedicate this exhibition in memory of Emmet Scott Lang (September 23, 1954 to July 24, 2020), a participant and artist with the Arts for Healing program.

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.
