Through six annual exhibitions in our main Balboa Park location, an active artist-in-residency program, arts education, and a robust program of workshops and performances, the San Diego Art Institute introduces diverse audiences, students and artists to quality exhibitions and responsive, interactive programming.

San Diego Art Institute maintains a number of programs:
- Advance artists of today… by providing artists and curators funding and resources to create, collaborate and exhibit.
- Reveal culture through contemporary and experimental manifestations of art… by presenting work that expands the boundaries of expression to engage the public with art.
- Lead contemporary art in the SoCal/No Baja region…by removing limitations of borders, physical and conceptual, and embolden production of leading regional contemporary art.
