Date: Dec 31 1969
Major: Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc (This Major's Salary over time)
I graduated from the Academy in 2009. My major was sculpture, I graduated with honors. So ask yourself
why would this guy slander his department? wouldn't that hurt him?

Let me be clear, I would rather ruin the reputation of my alma mater, than be associated with that place.

The San Francisco Academy Of Art University's sculpture department just fired the only redeeming quality they had. They just fired Erik Blome over email, with no notice.

For 3 years I put up with intimidation and emotional abuse from Peter Schifrin. He even openly mocked my religion in front of a class of students (I have 2 statements from students of the class to prove this).

I was disgusted at the time that most of my gradshool professors in the sculpture dept had less experience, and less resume than I did. The claim that the school is run by "artists for artist" that "professional" teach there, was not true in the sculpture dept.
