Sam Francis Gallery

The Sam Francis Gallery, located in the Peter Boxenbaum Arts Education Centre on the 21st Street Campus, is dedicated to the display of student art and to presenting cutting-edge exhibitions of work by locally and nationally prominent artists.
Thematically-based group exhibitions are often organized by independent curators and participating artists give public lectures and student workshops. Each spring, a group of student curators works with the Gallery director to organize an exhibition of works by local artists.

  • Upper and Middle School End-of-the-Year Exhibitions

    The artwork spans mediums such as drawing, painting, filmmaking, photography, ceramics, graphic design, digital art and animation and studio art.

    The Upper School Exhibition will feature the inaugural FilmRoads International Film Festival. FilmRoads brings high school students from around the world together to celebrate the language of film through bi-annual online programming and panels. Our goal is to give young filmmakers a formal place for their films to be viewed and explored. FilmRoads International Student Festival gives the opportunity for students to learn from one another and have critical discussions on cinema culture and the language of film.
