Friday Nights at the de Young is after-hours is art “happenings” on every Friday evening (from 5:00 pm to 8:45 pm) including a mix of live music, dance performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, special performances, hands-on art activities and exhibition tours. Each evening has a unique theme with the special exhibitions and permanent collections at the de Young. Local artists conduct workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in artist/curator conversations about the creative process. The café offers a delicious Friday Nights menu and specialty cocktails, and the observation tower is open until 8:15. Artist Fellows, Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators all play an active role in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience for all.
The de Young Museum is located in Golden Gate Park (50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, San Francisco, CA 94118).
