About the Student Exhibition
Peripheries is a photography exhibition exploring the specific and intangible boundaries of place. Its visual illustrations investigate the metaphysical, geographic, racial, physical, economic and psychic borders of sites. With their bodies of work, photographers Raelyn Ruppel, John Steck Jr., and Missy Weimer each bring a unique eye and technical prowess to the theme of horizon, lines, in-between places, limits of locale, and the margins of a landscape.

Artist Talk & Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 4, 4:30-7 PM

Participating MFAs
Raelyn Ruppel, John Steck Jr., and Missy Weimer


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 4:30 and a reception from 5–7 pm. For a complete schedule of SFAI's lectures and events, please visit www.sfai.edu/events
