The Original Disruptor Gala: A Campus Wide Immersive Art Experience

The San Francisco Bay Area is enriched by those who forge new horizons. Since 1871, San Francisco Art Institute has been on the forefront of, and championed, disruptive thinking in our community. Come celebrate SFAI’s role as The Original Disruptor, the Bay Area’s fountain of innovation and artistic risk-taking.

THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL GALA
No sit-down dinner. No talking heads. No polite applause. You will experience SFAI’s historic campus transformed into an array of visually striking and fully-immersive art bars and lounges.
Artists, chefs, bartenders, musicians, and entertainers will beckon you to barhop or relax in their one-of-a-kind cr…eations.

All proceeds from the event support student scholarships.
