In addition to the replacement of the copper roof of the main museum, interior repairs and some remodeling are planned. Museum staff are currently working on the logistics to pack and move the entire art collection (around 2000 objects) to a secure location before the work can begin. The main museum will be closed while this work is going on, but the adjacent Oakes Street galleries and Concho Clay Studio will remain unaffected. The museum is supported by generous contributions from both individuals and businesses.

 The Education Department builds conncections between SAMFA and the community- both local and global. We do this through gallery and studio programs and digital resources that provide an opportunity for people of all ages to imagine, think critically, discuss, and create.

Through our programs we hope to create lifelong learners who understand art as a keystone for the livable and happy community.
