DESCRIPTION

The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art exists to preserve, exhibit, and advance American art and is dedicated to making its programs and activities accessible to the people of the southwestern area of central Pennsylvania. Charged with the development, maintenance, and perpetuation of a permanent collection, the museum mounts exhibitions designed to evoke an interest in and an understanding and appreciation of American art.

The Loretto facility at Saint Francis University serves as headquarters to the complex of four Museum facilities and is a repository for the permanent collection of works of American art. Exhibitions are developed from national collections, as well as from the Museum's permanent collection.
