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.
Every week, Friday Nights at the de Young offers art-making activities to encourage everyone of all ages to tap into their creativity.
Eco de la montaña (Echo of the Mountain) (2014, 92 min.) documents the life, work, and struggle for survival of Santos de la Torre, a great Huichol artist. While one of his chaquira (a kind of diminute coloured bead) mural enjoys a privileged position at the threshold of the Louvre Museum in Paris, he lives in anonymity at the heart of the Sierra Madre Occidental, in Jalisco.
