About 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 in person, with virtual attendance options when available. Popular programs like our crafting and craft beer happy hour, Handi-hour, are never sold out for SAAM Creatives members.
