Explore the world through art and ideas. 

We invite you to meet an artist, tour an exhibition, converse with leading scholars, sip wine before an artist’s talk, experience the view, join an artist-driven adventure, or take a new look at Rivera’s monumental fresco.

By providing direct access to artists and ideas that advance our culture, SFAI inspires individuals of all backgrounds to engage critically and passionately with contemporary art.

SFAI’s programming is always expanding. Join the mailing list to receive once-monthly updates about lectures, special events, and exhibitions: sfai.edu/eventmail
