What the board calls the San Francisco Art Institute’s “most liquid asset” is “not a commodity,” the adjunct faculty union says.

After SFAI announced its likely closure, the school will retain all tenured faculty and plans to return to online instruction this fall.
SFAI is the nation’s only art school dedicated to contemporary art. Notable past faculty and alumni include Ansel Adams, Kathryn Bigelow, Angela Davis, Richard Diebenkorn, Paul Kos, Annie Leibovitz, Barry McGee, and Kehinde Wiley.
