SAM at Sunset to launch on March 3rd

SAM at Sunset is a new event series to take place weekly throughout March and early April at the Shepparton Art Museum bar terrace on level 4 of the SAM Building.

Open to the public, this ticketed event will allow the community to come and enjoy the one-of-a-kind view in Shepparton overlooking Victoria Lake.

Andrew Gooley, Acting CEO said, “SAM at Sunset is an opportunity for the Shepparton Art Museum to engage our new space in a way that explores what our venue has to offer. The view of Shepparton from level 4 of the SAM building is unique for our region and takes on a new life at sunset.  We look forward to welcoming people after work for a chance to catch-up with old friends and make new ones too.”

SAM at Sunset will run every Thursday from 6pm to 8pm from March 3 to April 14. Tickets will be released for sale one week in advance on a first come-first served basis. Tickets can be purchased through the SAM website at $35 each and include 3 drinks and nibbles catered by local providers.

Visit SAM’s website for more information and to register your interest for the next round of tickets. Please note this is an 18+ event.
