Our beautifully designed Ricardo Legorreta building, along with many other structures in Santa Fe, suffered roof damage in this summer’s 1,000-year flood and it has greatly affected our residency program. 

We are now in the midst of our roof repair and every dollar counts. If everyone on our mailing list donates $20, a dollar for each year we have been on the Midtown Campus, we could cover the cost of our new roof.  And, If you contribute by December 31, your gift will be matched by the Santa Fe Art Institute’s Board of Directors, dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000.

Simply select the $20 option below to contribute. Thank you for supporting the art & soul of SFAI!

With “Truth & Reconciliation” in Fall of 2018, we awarded over 70 tuition-free residencies to artists of all disciplines, as well as content experts across other fields of creative inquiry. Our initiative to sponsor residency fees is a direct response to a global rise in intolerance and division, and the important need for institutions like SFAI to foster social equity and critical dialogue. We know you believe in the power of creativity, and we need your support to reimagine a more equitable world.

Your contribution not only supports artist’s essential needs such as housing, transportation, studio supplies, and food, it also supports our annual thematic programming including monthly artist’s talks, roundtables, exhibitions, and our signature community event SFAI140.
