‘If I’d known then’ features current projects created by 26 University of San Francisco faculty members in the Department of Art + Architecture as they share insights with their younger artist selves.

Artists featured in the exhibit include: Noopur Agarwal, Renata Ancona, Brian Bartz, Roger Bass, Liat Berdugo, Alexa Ann Bonomo, Andrea Cernusak, Sergio De La Torre, Rachel Beth Egenhoefer, Sofia Gonzalez, Eric Hongisto, Carrie Hott, Sandra Kelch, Rivka Louissaint, Stuart McKee, Sean Olson, Matthew Peek, Brett Reichman, Lexygius Sanchez Calip, Tanu Sankalia, Mimi Sheiner, Jessica Snow, Seth Wachtel, Jenifer K. Wofford, and Susan Wolsborn.

Subjects explored range from artificial intelligence to identity, from caring for others to studies of place, introducing viewers to the breadth of scholarship and art practices utilized by the University’s teaching artists.
