Friday Nights at the de Young
Friday Nights at the de Young Season 12
April 15–November 25, 2016
Friday Nights at the de Young programs are after-hours art "happenings" that include a mix of live music, dance and theater performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and exhibition tours. Local artists conduct drop-in workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in conversations about the creative process. The café offers a special Friday Night menu and specialty cocktails, and the observation tower is open until 8 pm. 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.
Programming and general admission to the permanent collection galleries are free of charge during Friday Nights at the de Young.
Pricing still applies to visit the special exhibition Ed Ruscha and the Great American West.
Support for Friday Nights at the de Young is provided by Hanson Bridgett and Wells Fargo Foundation. During Friday Nights, free general admission to the permanent collection galleries is made possible through a grant from the William K. Bowes, Jr. Foundation. The media sponsor is the San Francisco Chronicle.
