Making History

Thank you to our donors!

The first phase of the Making History Campaign officially came to a close on June 30th, 2018. 

The campaign resulted in the new Pier 2 facility at the Fort Mason Center for the Arts and Culture. We are delighted that on August 28, 2017, the San Francisco Art Institute began classes at both Chestnut Street campus and our new Fort Mason campus.  As we look forward to the next iteration of capital planning, we are thrilled about this new home for SFAI and our role in the revitalization of Fort Mason. Thank you to all of the generous donors who made this possible. We could not have done it without you.

By establishing the SFAI-Fort Mason Campus and making needed improvements to our Chestnut Street campus, SFAI has reasserted its role as a vanguard arts institution with an illustrious history and enters a new era of public engagement and artistic development. You have been integral to our success. Together we will continue to foster creativity and critical thinking, invite discussion about art and society, and shape the cultural landscape of the greater Bay Area.

To learn how you can support artists in the Bay Area and help SFAI to continue to build on the momentum and success of this campaign, contact Amory Sharpe, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, at 415.749.4577 or
