For 28 years, the Santa Fe Art Institute has been a fixture of the local art scene, offering residencies to international artists as well as educational programs and original exhibitions in its gallery space, such as the current show on the theme of contested space by multimedia performance artist Dread Scott, on view through Nov. 22. (Scott got national attention — not all of it positive — in 1989 with his artwork What Is the Proper Way to Display a U.S. Flag? at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; it encouraged visitors to record their responses to the title question while standing on Old Glory.)

SFAI began in 1985 — the creation of Pony Ault and artist William Lumpkins — as a place where emerging artists and writers could focus on individual projects. Its first resident artist was Richard Diebenkorn. In 1999, the institute moved into a 17,000-square-foot facility, designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, on the campus of the College of Santa Fe, now the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.
