The Aqua Velvets Guitar Noir
Featuring the Aqua Velvets

Tonight's theme, Surf Night at the de Young, features live music by the Aqua Velvets in celebration of California living and Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years, 1953–1966.

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 observation tower is open until 8 pm. 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.
