Cafe shenanigans over the years have included banquets, poetry, celebrations, coffee, smoking, film screenings, and discussing art along with dancing and music as evidenced in these images from 1979 showing Debora Iyall and Romeo Void along with Mike Henderson at the microphone. Time to regroup with activities like this soon (maybe with the smoking outside)!

Our ongoing project to compile an SFAI bibliography triggered this bulletin board of a selection of photocopied book covers in the School’s stairwell. Plenty of wonderful researchers, curators, and museums have published fascinating titles pertaining to the School’s history.


Please send along titles that you think should be included! Future researchers, artists, and art historians will be appreciative. AND…..the SFAI’s Anne Bremer Memorial Library and Archives is available for researchers, make an appointment! And relay your questions to library@sfai.edu.


And….a link to a brief illustrated history of SFAI-associated periodicals, usual and rare—from the Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archives virtual Matrix 277 exhibit:Orbits of Known and Unknown Objects: SFAI Histories: https://matrix277.org/Object-34
