Gala Vernissage

Thank you for joining SFAI to celebrate Gala Vernissage! It was a pleasure to honor Roselyne Chroman (Cissie) Swig and showcase work by SFAI’s graduating MFA and MA student-artists in our future home of the Graduate Center in Pier 2 at Fort Mason Center. 

View photos from Gala Vernissage and snapshots from Varnished: The After Party’s photo booth, and visit us on campus anytime. We look forward to sharing details about next year’s Gala Vernissage in the coming months.
