San Diego Art Institute

Advancing visual arts through exhibition, education, and outreach since 1941 in San Diego's beautiful Balboa Park.

The San Diego Art Institute (SDAI) is a premier organization showcasing artists from the Southern California/Baja Norte region. Their mission is to broaden and continue the support of the visual arts through exhibition, education, and outreach. Their ongoing dedication is to provide a wide range of innovative programs that respond to the needs of their communities, and by forging partnerships with the local and global communities.

SDAI offers an array of programs including exhibitions, lectures, tours, educational programs and an Artist-in-Residence Program and currently operates out of an 8,000 sq. ft. exhibition space in Balboa Park. In addition to critical exhibitions of local contemporary art, they also acknowledge and showcase work by youth in their Young Artist Gallery. Their rotating exhibition series is curated or juried by internationally recognized curators and focuses on regional artists from the Southern California/Baja Norte region. We also host two monthly solo artist exhibitions, as well as exhibitions in our new media project space.
