Tonight the de Young presents fresh music sounds of the Broken Shadows Family Band, led by Darren Johnston.
Celebrate the residency of August Artist-in-Residence Adela Akers and her installment Traced Memories. Light refreshments served.
Every week, Friday Night at the de Young offers art making to encourage everyone, of all ages, to tap into their creativity.
The Oakland-based Broken Shadows Family Band is an all-star cast of musicians from divergent backgrounds. Musical ingredients in their family recipe include Western European, classical Arabic, Slavic choral, and Americana music as well as sounds from Macedonia, Ethiopia, classic jazz, and R&B. They’ve created a truly unique sound, balancing the old with the new, telling human stories over grooves that beg to be danced to.
Enjoy the festivities of Friday Nights at the de Young along with a pre-reserved spot on a docent led tour of Modernism from the National Gallery of Art: The Robert & Jane Meyerhoff Collection.
Package includes the tour, an exhibition ticket, and a complimentary beverage (choice of beer, wine, or non-alcoholic selection). Tours begin promptly at 7 pm. Discounts may not apply.
