San Francisco Art Institute Graduate Center
Resident Since 2016
Founded in 1871, San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) is one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher education in the practice and study of contemporary art. As a diverse community of working artists and scholars, SFAI provides undergraduate and graduate students with a rigorous education in the arts at both their main campus and graduate center, which will move to Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC) in 2017. The SFAI Graduate Center at FMCAC’s historic Pier 2 will feature 170+ artist studios for MFA candidates, a student lounge, and 3,300 square feet of public-facing gallery space. The Graduate Center is the final phase of the $51 million restoration of Pier 2.
