SOTA Prints

Over time, the SOTA Print Fund’s focus has evolved beyond its original purpose to include a more universal outlook. Fifty years of fundraising has facilitated the purchase of over 350 prints from the 15th Century to the present.

“I enjoy volunteering for SOTA because I’ve always had an interest in art & being a member of the SOTA organization held great appeal for me. I began this journey with the intention of giving my time to help further the arts in my community. What I didn’t expect is how much I would benefit, personally. I’ve met so many wonderful women & learned so much as a result of my association with this group. Based on my experience, the members of SOTA contribute a great deal to the Allentown Art Museum. However, the return on their investment is truly priceless.”
~Karen Hittinger – SOTA Volunteer of the Year
