Member Previews


Member Previews are why we say, “See it first. See it free.” All SAM members are invited to be among the first to experience exhibitions before they open to the public. Member Previews feature exclusive opportunities throughout the day including exhibition overviews with curators and special guests as well as art activities and a celebratory happy hour. Different membership tiers provide different levels of access to connect with new exhibitions and ground-breaking artists and opportunities to share your love of art with friends and family.

This program is exclusively for members.
