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
The Diego Gallery is proud to present a new collaborative installation by Dimitra Skandali and Tom Loughlin.  The work features sculptural elements made of seaweed, and a sound installation created in part by resonating steel plates.

Loughlin and Skandali have been described by KQED’s Sarah Hotchkiss as “an excellent pairing.”  Of their most recent collaboration at SFAI’s Vernissage show, Squarecylinder’s David M. Roth said “The biggest buzz  – literally — came from Tom Loughlin’s installation in the basement, Foghorn...  For site-specific relevance nothing else in the show compared.”  Skandali’s work in the show received the Anne Bremer Memorial Prize, SFAI's highest award.

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
