SAM is a doorway to our community. It is: a gathering place; a visitor attraction; a landmark for the visual arts;a catalyst for change; we exist to educate and deliver a message that will encourage people to think differently about their relationship to others and the world. A center of creativity, the Museum collects, displays and interprets all aspects of the visual arts in ways that relate to the past, present - and to the future. The Spartanburg Art Museum builds community bridges.
Our Mission: The Spartanburg Art Museum is a regional museum promoting the visual arts by supporting creative educational programming; sponsoring diverse exhibitions; acquiring, displaying and conserving a permanent collection; and providing appropriate places for outreach opportunities. The Spartanburg Art Museum is the leading proponent of the visual arts within our County.
SAM started as the Spartanburg Arts & Crafts Club and our first purchase in 1907 was 'The Girl with Red Hair' an oil on canvas by Robert Henri painted in 1903. We have since grown into the Spartanburg Art Museum.
Over 350 pieces of fine art and sculpture from the 20th Century forward. We feature a strong emphasis on local and regional artists.
