Art of Change 2024

A night celebrating artists that change the world.

Join us on August 3 for Art of Change.

Art of Change is a dynamic evening celebrating catalytic artists. We are thrilled to welcome artist Rose B. Simpson for a talk in the courtyard of the Visual Arts Center, followed by a cocktail hour and community dinner in our beautiful gallery. Art of Change supports SFAI as a creative home for experimental space and thematic discourse. The talk is free, but by purchasing a cocktail hour or dinner ticket, you fund an artist’s essential needs such as housing, studio space, and stipends— as well as resident artist talks, open studios, exhibitions, and free public events.
