information about San Francisco Art Institute
The San Francisco Art Institute has been a magnet for forward thinkers for the last 100 years. The integration of our academic and public programs creates a unique laboratory where artists can experiment with original ideas and create new work. Discover the leading art of our time by engaging in thought provoking experiences on site, off site and online. The Walter and McBean Galleries are the campus’ primary exhibition venue and consistently provide innovative programming. In support of the Art Institute’s overarching mission to advance contemporary art and artists the galleries’ year round schedule places an emphasis on newly commissioned work and guest curated exhibitions featuring local and international visiting artists. The Diego Rivera Gallery is a student directed, year-round showcase that features weekly exhibitions of San Francisco Art Institute student work. The public is invited to weekly openings each Tuesday from 5:30 until 7:30 pm. The gallery is also home to "The Making of a Fresco Showing the Building of a City" created by the famed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera in 1931.
