Board of Trustees

Whitney Humphreys is currently finishing her third year in SFAI’s Dual Degree program, having completed the MFA portion of the degree focusing her studio practice on printmaking and sculptural installation. Her final year will be spent in the History and Theory of Contemporary Art department, with her thesis titled, Gendered Machines. Her practice is rooted deeply in processes of research addressing modes of knowledge production and representation that impact constructions of identity, examined through an Intersectional Feminist lens. Before entering the graduate program, Whitney’s experience working in art education and administration included serving as a board member of the Santa Cruz Art League and working as an art instructor. During her time at SFAI, she has been engaged within the institution, holding a position as a tutor in the Academic Resource Center, as a Teaching Assistant in the Printmaking department, and as a Co-Director of the 2018 Legion of Graduate Students along side Hayley Jensen. Following her time here, Humphreys will pursue her career as an art educator.
