The San Francisco Art Institute is proud to announce the 2011 MFA Graduate Exhibition, opening May 13 at The Winery SF on Treasure Island. As SFAI celebrates its 140th Anniversary, the exhibition continues the school’s tradition of innovation, showcasing 72 graduating MFA students working in painting, photography, printmaking, film, sculpture, installation, digital media, performance, and more.
The 2011 MFA Graduate Exhibition will introduce the Bay Area community to these thought-provoking new talents and provide visitors with an overview of exciting directions in art today. The work on display is the result of an intense period of collaboration, investigation, and artistic development, and represents a range of interests and approaches. SFAI students are engaged with both art history and contemporary global society, yet possess strong individual points of view, and have created work at turns personal, political, playful, subversive, challenging, and beautiful.
Vernissage/Opening Reception: Friday, May 13, 2011, 6–8 pm
Exhibition dates: May 14–21, 2011, open daily 11 am–6 pm
Free and open to the public
