School Partnerships + Projects

We’re bringing resources, artists, and art professionals to high school students, and bringing students’ creativity and insights to SFMOMA. As part of our mission to support and engage with students and teachers, SFMOMA is partnering directly with selected San Francisco Unified School District high schools. These partnerships were created to deepen students’ understanding of modern and contemporary art and introduce them to careers in the arts.

We’re supporting each selected high school in a specific way. Our partnership with Balboa High School focuses on curating and integrating contemporary art into humanities learning. We’re working with Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts to create the school’s first department of architecture and design.

In addition, SFMOMA commissions artist projects with non-partner Bay Area high schools. These unique collaborations expose students to artistic practice and explore why art matters in the world today.
