About the Sidney Museum and Arts Association
PRESERVING HISTORY --- PROMOTING ART
A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission
can alter the course of history.
Our mission is simple. We are dedicated to preserving history and promoting art. The Sidney Museum and Arts Association promotes private and public interest in the history of Port Orchard and surrounding areas, as well as encourages interest in many forms of art with special focus on the works of Puget Sound and Northwest artists. We provide and support instruction and education in cultural enrichment both in the history of the South Kitsap area and in the arts.
The association also fosters the care and appreciation of historic buildings in the Port Orchard area with repairs, maintenance and preservation, and education in the value of their historic significance. Sharing this knowledge perpetuates the cultural importance of history and art.
The Sidney Museum and Arts Association, a non-profit organization founded in 1970, is dedicated to preserving local history and fostering the arts. The association established and maintains the Sidney Art Gallery, the Sidney Museum and the Log Cabin Museum.
We believe that the preservation of our history and promotion of the arts plays an important role in our community. Membership in SMAA supports exhibits in both museums and the Art Gallery, educational programs, and maintenance of the facilities.
