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.

    We’re Beginning, we began, we’ve begun
    features artworks created by members of Crossroads School’s K-12 Visual Art Department. With each teaching artist having an established artmaking practice, their process and experience has become a foundation on which they teach. As we open the school year remotely, the Visual Arts faculty at Crossroads continues to explore various methods to approach teaching students in virtual spaces while expanding their own creative process. Every day, these artists bring with them their extensive knowledge, experience, and passion from their practice into a space they share with students.
