An affiliated SFAI MA class, TRANSIT/STASIS, is a consideration of art and urban movement in San Francisco, featuring an exhibition, publication, and public programs and was mentored by Meg Shiffler (Gallery Director, San Francisco Arts Commission/SFAI Adjunct Professor).

Work from the classes will be exhibited through May 15th at SOMArts located at:

About the Classes:

TRANSIT/STASIS: Negotiating Movement in the City is a consideration of art and urban movement in San Francisco, featuring an exhibition, publication, and public programs. The exhibition, which was on view in SFAI’s Diego Rivera Gallery in April and continues at SOMArts through May 15, documents five artist projects implemented throughout the spring of 2011, each of which evidences shifting conditions of artistic and spatial production as seen through the frame of transit. For more information about the projects, and to download the publication, visit www.transit-stasis.com.

City Studio Press: Artists as Journalists: Students created www.citystudio.org, a website supporting SFAI’s City Studio program, which provides high quality arts education to underserved youth in their own neighborhoods. The students also developed a new City Studio course offering, “City Studio Press: Artists as Journalists,” which will begin in the Fall 2011 cycle. For more information, visit www.citystudio.org.
