Once per year, San Francisco Art Institute’s studios for its graduate students, housed in a large, industrial warehouse space in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood are open to the public, and are invited to view a wide range of installations and displays of multidisciplinary works in progress. The assortment of artwork includes many forms of and approaches to painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation, performance, and digital media. This event not only offers a special glimpse into the working processes of over 200 MFA, Dual Degree, and Post-Baccalaureate student artists from first to final years of study, but also encourages engagement and conversation with the student artists about their process and interests.

This is additionally a unique time to see artworks before the upcoming MFA Graduate exhibition, “Principal” opening May 16 at the old San Francisco Mint, where over 70 of its graduating Masters of Fine Arts candidates will participate in a final exhibition of their work as a SFAI student.
