Another World, presented in association with the San Francisco Bay Guardian | Friday Nights at the de Young

Make Drag, Not War

In collaboration with the The San Francisco Bay Guardian, Veteran Artist presents "Another World," featuring scenes from Make Drag, Not War. Also, veteran artists Combat Paper and Iraq Veterans Against the War.

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 Friday Nights prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails, and the observation tower is open until 8:00 p.m. 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.
