Centennial Capital Campaign
In 2013 the Springfield Art Association celebrated 100 years of visual art education and promotion. To fulfill our vision for a successful second century, the Centennial Capital Campaign was launched. We are thankful for the many ways our donors, friends, and volunteers shard and enthusiastically contributed to this vision. We honor those who generously supported the campaign and invite you to experience the interior restoration of Edwards Place, the remodel at the M.G. Nelson Family Gallery, the updated Condell and back studios, and this gorgeous new construction including the Baima Glass Studio, Prairie Earth and Fire Ceramics Studio, and the Smith & Nickelson Metals Studio. The quality of the education and interpretation our students and visitors receive is the direct result of your support. To all our friends and partners who keep the SAA at the top of their philanthropic priorities, thank you
There are exciting things happening at the SAA; we have evolved, transformed, and grown offering an expanded view of artistic expression and exploration. We have made it our mission to be an association open to everyone, to provide artists a space for free expression and experimentation, to exhibit alternative forms of art, and to initiate open, creative and imaginative education and discussion. We believe this is vital and essential for a high-quality, innovative Community Visual Arts Center.
