SFAI is the nation’s only art school dedicated to contemporary art. What sets SFAI apart?
It is like no other art school; it offers a refuge for both the radical and orthodox.
It understands that changes occur first as an idea, and then manifests through action.
It recognizes that art is integral to problem solving and questioning the status quo.
It positions itself dynamically between what was, what is, and what will be.
It is a place for alternative views where the new is born of necessity, not market forces.
Its faculty provoke and stimulate thought.
It is a creative laboratory and a place of aesthetic inquiry.
It gives valency to both the seen and the otherwise invisible within a culture of thoughtful anarchy.
It is a place of thought, elation, frustration, compunction, wisdom, and growth.
It recognizes that tradition is not historic, but a continuum.
