Upper Category Member Events

Each year, the Upper Category Committee brings together a roster of special events for SAA members in the Contributor, Donor and Sponsor levels.

If you are not yet an Upper Category member, we invite your participation. Please contact the SAA Office Manager to upgrade your membership, or join as an Upper Category member. We also hope to bring back our popular in-home conversations and collection viewing offerings in the spring as the pandemic comes under control.

She'll discuss the origin stories and creative processes behind Pattern Recognition, her mural on AAM's Hyde Street Art Wall, and Chatsilog Revisited, M.O.B.'s installation in AAM's Lee Gallery, among many other works. She'll also talk about the importance of Asian American and Filipino American art.
