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
