Society of the Arts is a Non-Profit Women’s Service Organization

Our purpose is to work with and actively support the Allentown Art Museum.

Who We Are

SOTA offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to fit an array of schedules, talents and interests. Whether you want to learn more about art, work with children or simply enjoy interacting with others in a dynamic organization, there is something for everyone. We have bi-monthly general meetings at the Museum, but the days, times and locations for committee and project participation vary a great deal, allowing involvement for working women. We also have a wonderful Apprentice program to help new members meet people and get involved.

In addition to our committee work, SOTA members plan and execute two major fundraising projects that benefit educational programs at the Allentown Art Museum and support the SOTA Print Fund and SOTA Education Endowment.

Throughout our fifty-year history, SOTA has also contributed generously to the Allentown Art Museum. Our gifts have included funds for the purchase of more than 350 prints for the Museum’s collection through the SOTA Print Fund, the creation of the SOTA Education Endowment, and financial support for “Free Sundays,” “ArtWays” and other Museum educational needs.
