Steamboat Art Museum Mission Statement:
"The mission of the Steamboat Art Museum is to collect, preserve, and present fine art to the public, with a primary focus on the culture and heritage of Northwestern Colorado."
Steamboat Art Museum was formed in December of 2005. In 2006 the City of Steamboat Springs was given the historic First National Bank building located in downtown Steamboat Springs. The gift was from the estate of Helen Rehder, a long-time area rancher and artist, who stipulated that the building be used as a museum. SAM has signed a 99 year lease with the City for the entire building and is undertaking restoration of the historic building.
