San Francisco Art Institute | Fort Mason Campus

Resident Since 2017

Founded in 1871, San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) is a legendary school for teaching, learning, making, and sharing contemporary art.

SFAI introduces the public to its stunning second campus at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture: the 67,000 square foot renovated pier is the new home to over 160 art studios for students, faculty, and visiting artists; and 3,300 square feet of new public exhibition space, open to the public and free of charge, including a flagship gallery, a graduate student-run gallery, and Grey Box media and performance space.

This new campus joins the historic Chestnut Street campus in Russian Hill to radically advance SFAI’s commitment to positioning artists at the center of public life in the Bay Area and globally.
