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

Wallace Stegner once said, “California is America, only more so.” It can therefore be said that California is an idealized space where issues of race, sexuality, gender, and privilege can be explored. Our intent is to approach this idea through an amassment of paintings, drawings, installation, and collage. Using these different media to talk about place as not merely a location, but as a marker to deconstruct and reassemble the borders inherent in observing place by means of the questions: where is home, where do you live, and where are you from.

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
