SAAM Creatives

Interested in art? Love crafts? Join SAAM Creatives!

SAAM Creatives is a membership group for young professionals who are interested in immersing themselves in the American art experience and supporting the Smithsonian American Art Museum and its Renwick Gallery. Enjoy fun activities designed exclusively for our members, dive into new exhibitions with curators, and socialize with other creatives. SAAM Creatives hosts programming virtually, as well as in person when available. Popular programs like our crafting and craft beer happy hour, Handi-hour, are never sold out for SAAM Creatives members. Currently all programs are virtual.

Tax-deductible gifts from people like you make possible a variety of free public programs, exhibitions, and initiatives at SAAM. Thank you for ensuring that American art is available to all.
