Message from the President

In order to offer our members, staff, and guests a reasonable degree of safety from the spread of COVID-19, SAR’s campus and in-person events will be closed to large groups through the summer of 2020 and probably beyond. In light of the situation, SAR has transitioned from live events to high-quality online offerings that include behind-the-scenes access to our scholars, artists, and collections.

This pivot has given us new ways to share innovative content that illuminates topics of broad public concern.  Online platforms allow us to serve our longstanding members as well as a growing global audience. With challenge comes opportunity.

Although we look forward to the day when we will again be able to meet face-to-face, I hope you will join us as we pursue SAR’s important mission by electronic means.

Michael Brown, President of SAR

Michael F. Brown

We will continue our commitment to providing engaging and thought-provoking perspectives from leading scholars and artists. Please continue your participation as an important member of our community by registering and joining us at the events below.
