SAA Member Survey
For the past three years, the SAA leadership has been involved in meetings and discussions to take possession of a museum facility that would serve as a permanent home for the Society. It would NOT be a liability to the SAA, or run directly by the SAA, but would be set up as an entirely new 501c3 organization with the goal of benefitting the Society of Animal Artists as well as other art organizations and community groups. The SAA Board is currently in discussions with two different museums that are potential candidates but we would like to proactively investigate how our membership feels about the possibility and what you individually might be willing to do. Please note that we are still in discussions only at this point in time but we may possibly be in negotiations as early as next month.
Most options below relate specifically to the SAA’s involvement with this new museum. The SAA already has signed and/or pending contracts for exhibitions through 2024.
