Dive into the meaning of art. Explore our vast collection of pieces from the Neoclassical period to Contemporary times. Discover a trove of artistic treasures in sculpture and painting that highlights several definitions of art. Might art, for instance, exist just for art’s sake? Does it always have to be beautiful? Does it have a practical purpose? Might it have no purpose at all? Or perhaps, is it designed to provoke new ideas, including about art itself? These are just some of the questions we will ponder as we journey through the halls of SAMA.
