Society of the Arts (SOTA) is a nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1964 with a mission to support the Allentown Art Museum’s presentation of outstanding artistic programs.

Throughout the year, SOTA offers a number of public events, including docent tours, art activities for children and families, Luncheon with the Authors, the SOTA Showhouse, and more. Throughout its 50-year history, SOTA has contributed generously to the Allentown Art Museum. Our gifts have included funds for the purchase of more than 350 prints for the Museum’s collections through the SOTA Print Fund, the creation of the SOTA Education Endowment, and financial support for Free Sundays, Art Ways, and other Museum educational needs.
