In 1966 SFAI sponsored a three-day symposium, The Current Moment in Art, which brought together artists, curators, critics and collectors, including Walter Hopps, Larry Rivers, Peter Selz, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Wayne Thiebaud, and Mrs. Bagley Wright and many more. The symposium was accompanied by two exhibitions, Six from the West (which showcased the work of Joe Goode, Charles Mattox, David Simpson, Hassel Smith, Wayne Thiebaud, and Peter Voulkos) and Six from the East (featuring Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Ray Parker, Larry Poons, Larry Rivers, and Frank Stella).
