Diego Rivera Gallery
The Diego Rivera Gallery is a student-directed exhibition space for work by San Francisco Art Institute students. The gallery provides an opportunity for BFA, MFA and Post-Baccalaureate students to present their work in a gallery setting, to use the space for large-scale installations, or to experiment with artistic concepts and concerns in a public venue. Exhibitions change weekly and open on Tuesdays. About 40 shows per year are scheduled, and close to 200 students exhibit each year.
In ex-faculty member Charles Boone's time at SFAI, he attended nearly every opening reception.
The Making of a Fresco Showing the Building of a City (1931) is one of four murals in the Bay Area painted by Mexican artist Diego Rivera (1886–1957). Rivera's mural seems to be painted for and about a working class audience.
