The vision of the San Francisco State University Fine Arts Gallery is to serve a broad and varied audience that includes students, faculty and staff of San Francisco State University, along with the local arts community and the greater population of the region, while carrying out a program that reflects the range of disciplines taught by San Francisco State’s School of Art. To accomplish this, they organize professional artist exhibitions and present the work of student artists. Lectures, performances, film screenings and other public programs serve to expand the discussions initiated in their exhibitions. Student involvement in all aspects of organizing and presenting exhibitions in the Fine Arts Gallery is key to the program.
The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University acquired the Andy Warhol Photography Archive from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in 2014. The collection of 3,600 contact sheets and corresponding negatives represents the complete range of Warhol’s black-and-white photographic practice from 1976 until his unexpected death in 1987.
