About SFAI as a location

The San Francisco Art Institute is nestled in to San Francisco’s historic Russian Hill, adjacent to North Beach and Fisherman’s Wharf. With unrivaled views of the bay and a variety of spaces and facilities, SFAI is an outstanding location for receptions, formal dinners, wedding celebrations, and other events.

The many-tiered campus offers two distinctive architectural styles—the original Spanish colonial mission-style building was completed in 1926, and the modern building complex on the north side of campus was completed in 1969.
