Support Groups

The Springfield Art Museum is fortunate to have two support groups, SMMA (Southwest Missouri Museum Associates) and FOSAM (Friends of the Springfield Art Museum). Both groups are separate 501c3 nonprofit organizations that help raise money for the Museum and support its programs. Both groups sponsor tours, classes, purchase artwork, and assist with building needs. More information about these groups and their activities can be found below:
