Established in 1871, the San Francisco Art Institute is one of the pioneering art schools in America. Its galleries were designed to look like a converted monastery complete with a beautiful courtyard. Forty years hence, the rooftop deck was added from where you can see a great deal of the city, including Coit Towerand Twin Peaks. The Diego Rivera Gallery contains a mural by the man himself and a strong collection of students' work. The Walter McBean Gallery feature a myriad of contemporary creations by established and emerging artists.
