SFAI Concentrate


Join us November 14-15 for CONCENTRATE, a weekend-long festival, art sale, and series of artist-driven events open to the public. The student art sale showcases a broad range of contemporary art works from over 170 students, happening at SFAI’s 800 Chestnut Street campus. The festival also offers an array of family-friendly activities including art-making, a bounce house, ping pong rallies and goats in the SFAI meadow. 

SFAI is also pleased to announce that Whoop Dee Doo, the internationally renowned faux-public access, family-friendly variety show, will perform with a team of SFAI students in ingenious game show performances created especially for Concentrate. The show will be hosted every 20 minutes in Zellerbach Quad.
