In conjunction with the 100 year anniversary of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, the de Young and collaborators Ken Goldberg from UC Berkeley / CITRIS "People and Robots" Initiative, and Alexander Rose from The Long Now Foundation present “100 Years of Robot Art and Science in the Bay Area.”

Friday Nights at the de Young 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 delicious prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails, and the Hamon Tower observation level is open until 8 pm. Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators play active roles in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience.

Ticket Information

Programming and general admission to the permanent collection galleries are free of charge during Friday Nights at the de Young. A discounted $15 ticket is required to visit the special exhibition galleries.
