With new student shows nearly every week (here, Y-Axis, 2008, a multimedia installation by Brandon Truscott, Andres
Garcia Franco, and John Melvin), the Diego Rivera Gallery is a valuable site for experimentation and exhibition.

About the Student Exhibition
This group of three female artists investigates the possibilities and extent of ones experience with close consideration of contemporary surroundings and objects. The ability to capture an emotion through figure, texture, and movement. Lanee Bird questions the role of innocence and childhood nostalgia through toy portraiture existing within a digital realm and an imaginary space. Emily Gorman works primarily in video, practicing a denial of the audience with close attention on particularly isolated actions. Stephanie Pence incorporates campy meditations on pop culture, while examining the omni-presence of hyper masculinity in drug culture.

About the Diego Rivera Gallery Exhibitions
The Diego Rivera Gallery, home to SFAI’s historic Diego Rivera Mural, is a student-directed exhibition space for work by SFAI students. The gallery provides an opportunity for students from all academic programs to present their work or curate in a gallery setting; to use the space for large-scale installations; or to experiment with artistic concepts and concerns in a public venue.

The Gallery is open daily from 9 am–5 pm for exhibition and mural viewing on SFAI’s 800 Chestnut Street campus. Opening receptions are on Tuesdays, with an artist talk at 5:30 and a reception from 5–7 pm. For a complete schedule of SFAI's lectures and events, please visit www.sfai.edu/events
