FOUNDED BY ARTISTS, RAN BY ARTISTS, FOR THE ARTISTS!
The San Antonio Street Art Initiative is an artist ran, independent, non-profit charity that focuses on career development through street art programming. Since November of 2018, SASAI has been leading the way for street and mural art in San Antonio working diligently towards creating the LARGEST OUTDOOR GALLERY IN TEXAS™. As its signature program, LOGIT scouts talent to participate in the city’s best, and most highly visible community projects. This program is also well known for advocating on behalf of the artist’s true aesthetic on walls. With little to no input from the sponsor on art design, this freedom allows our artists to showcase their artwork on a larger scale, while enabling us to display a diverse representation of our artist’s true & unique voices across the city.
SASAI is also well known for artist rights advocacy. In addition to job placement and career development opportunities, SASAI incorporates business and legal empowerment programming that strengthen artists as business owners and acts as an ally as they maneuver career growth in the professional realm. SASAI takes a lot of pride in advocating for fair-pay; no one works for free! Programming is also known for advocating on behalf of the artist’s copyright, licensing and more, and does this 100% free of charge. SASAI hosts a wide variety of street art programming and takes pride in always putting the artist first.
Although SASAI has only been around for four short years, the organization has created almost 70 public art contributions for the city and has advocated for over 45 artist’s careers. Programming has aided artists of all levels, from the developing high school artists who need help jump starting their resumes, to seasoned artists who are ready to sharpen their business skills. Programming has even helped senior artists learn about and incorporate technology into their repertoire so that they may continue to prosper in their careers in the modern technological world. SASAI takes pride in our non-profit being artist-founded and artist-ran. This lends itself to trust and understanding within our growing artist roster. Painting along side our artists in the work field, we manage to fully understand and know first hand, the troubles and obstacles artists will encounter on their journey to becoming full time, successful artists and so we are able to advocate with this experience in mind and help accelerate careers more effectively and efficiently. In turn, we also collaborate with other successful artists around the world to strengthen programming and build bridges locally, nationally and globally, opening doors for our artists around the world.
