San Francisco Art Institute announces PRINCIPAL group exhibition

San Francisco Art Institute presents PRINCIPAL on view May 15–May 18, 2014, 11am–6pm.

For this dynamic group exhibition, nearly 80 artists from the San Francisco Art Institute transform the Old Mint, a National Historic Landmark, with installations in the historic bank vaults, ballrooms, brick-lined hallways, interior courtyards, and every crevice between. The exhibition annually garners critical attention for its energetic presentation of multidisciplinary work and its relevance to the future of contemporary art.

Master of Fine Arts (MFA) artists will present work across disciplines, including site-specific projects and performances that directly engage the venue. Master of Arts (MA) scholars will unveil the Book Room—an installation addressing the intersections of scholarly production and contemporary art.
