Friday Nights at the de Young, Nov 16

Join us for the return of Friday Nights at the de Young! This special Fall season runs for nine Fridays from September 28–November 23. All Friday nights will feature reduced admission to the special exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions, and free admission to the main-level galleries. Advance tickets to the exhibition are recommended and can be purchased below.
On Friday, November 16, we welcome all ages to our Friday Nights with an emphasis on our youth community.
At 6 pm in the Piazzoni Murals Room, join us for some hijab style tips, demonstrated by mother and daughter Fahima Altaf Khan and Saahar Khan, followed by a special appearance from our Teen Advisory Board.
At 7 pm in the Piazzoni Murals Room, we are excited to welcome Leah Vernon, the Detroit-based social media influencer, inclusive content creator, and plus-size hijabi model featured in places like Elle Magazine, Marie Claire, Seventeen, and Teen Vogue. Vernon will speak about her body-positive platform, Beauty and the Muse, how she uses modest style on Instagram to create social change, and what it means to be a fat, Black, and Muslim girl living in America. Q+A to follow. This appearance is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
Inspired by the art and fashion of the show? Get your creativity on at our art-making station in Wilsey Court. A selection of food and drink will be available from the Museum Cafe, including halal choices and creative non-alcoholic “mocktails.” Enjoy a musical playlist courtesy of Fareeha Safir and Shoaib Meenai.
Another not-to-be-missed Friday Night experience is the Turrell Skyspace (located outside the museum sculpture garden). Beginning 20 minutes before sunset each night, viewers’ perceptions of the sky color will be subtly altered by an L.E.D. lighting system inside the chamber, and by changing light and weather conditions outside the chamber.
Admission is free to the main-level galleries and performances in Piazzoni Murals Room and Wilsey Court. Tickets to Contemporary Muslim Fashions are reduced to $14 adult and $6 youth on Friday Nights between 5–8:30 pm. Advance tickets to the exhibition are recommended.
Interested in more? The Contemporary Muslim Fashions Friday Night Tour Package includes admission to the special exhibition, a docent-led tour, and a complimentary bevarage (choice of beer, wine, or a non-alcoholic selection). Learn more.
