SFAI Alumni


At SFAI, we are are celebrating the contributions of our incredible alumni. SFAI alumni are remarkable changemakers from around the world. Over 1,000 individuals have worked at SFAI over our thirty-two year history, and the impact and scope of your work is incredible! Here are four ways we invite you back to SFAI, as critical members of our international community.

1. We want to recognize your achievements! We are creating an SFAI alumni archive, a series of publications, & alumni network. The remarkable work of our alumni spans the globe. CHECK OUT THE ALUMNI ARCHIVE HERE. If you haven’t yet,  SUBMIT YOUR WORK HERE TO BE INCLUDED. We also have an SFAI IN THE WORLD section in our Newsletter- if you have upcoming events / press / openings / publications, we want to share it! Write to Robert, our Development & Communications Director at to share your news.

2. We are dedicating our courtyard space to you! And we need your help to bring it to life. We have a generous match in place, but need you to make it happen. The match is only available until June 19th.  PLEASE DONATE TODAY! BE PART OF OUR COURTYARD LIVENING.

3. We are inviting you back to your Santa Fe home! Join us in our famed Legorreta building and creativity-filled studios at SFAI during special periods available for alumni (select dates in  December), and at special rates for alumni. Space and time are limited! Write to Residency Program Manager Toni Gentilli at to reserve your time.

4. Join us for a party celebrating all alumni! We are hosting a summer SFAI alumni party on June 16. Join us in our soon to be renovated courtyard with SFAI alumni across the decades. RSVP HERE. If you would like to host a satellite alumni party in your area, write to Robert, our Development & Communications Director at so we can help make it happen!


Our courtyard is the heart of SFAI, but it is not as user-friendly as it should be. We are turning to our center to create a deeper, more fulfilling experience for residents and our community. We are completely-revisioning the space! We are adding family tables, seating, a desert garden, shade structures, and recognition for all. SFAI is your Santa Fe home- let’s make it the most beautiful place it can be! Donate to our campaign to renovate and dedicate our courtyard to SFAI below.

We have a generous match in place that will triple your donation, and we need your help to make it happen!

Every $1 gift will become $3! Please give today- the match is available only through June 19.
