At Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI), we are artists, innovative thinkers, and engaged citizens. We cultivate creative leadership and invest in community, culture, and place to re-imagine a more equitable world.
SFAI is a hub for creative engagement and social change. We facilitate our mission through four areas: a renowned residency program bringing together creative practitioners from all over the world, educational programming that includes the groundbreaking Design Workshop, public programs that celebrate local innovators and activists like SFAI140, and our social entrepreneurship incubator SFAI Works.
SFAI acknowledges Ogha Po’oge, the original name of Santa Fe, as part of the traditional territories of the Tewa and Tanos peoples.
If you believe in the role creativity plays in public education, if you believe in the benefit of cultivating exchanges with local, national, and international artists, if you believe in supporting social innovation in Northern New Mexico, then contribute to SFAI and participate in our programming.
Complex problems require interdisciplinary solutions. At SFAI, we bring together artists, architects, designers, writers, local community partners, and national arts organizations to develop solutions to the most pressing issues of our time.

Our work is only possible with a tremendous amount of support. In addition to many private donors, we would like to thank foundations for their generous contributions to SFAI.
