Featuring early and formative work by SFAI alumni Barry McGee, Alicia McCarthy, and Ruby Neri, as well as Chris Johanson and Margaret Kilgallen—all key members of the Mission School—ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND has been heralded for its celebration of social art-making, community, folk art, nostalgia for the obsolete, low production values, and "street" aesthetics. 

The exhibition was shown at SFAI's Walter and McBean Galleries from September 12–December 14, 2013, before traveling to the Grey Art Gallery at New York University from April 15–July 12, 2014.
