The de Young Museum's collections of textiles and of art from Africa, Oceania, and the Americas have been city treasures for many years. With the 2005 opening of the new de Young, these collections were celebrated with large, state-of-the-art galleries that will preserve them for generations to come.
The Opening Preview Gala of the San Francisco Tribal & Textile Arts Show benefits these arts, their galleries, and their preservation at the de Young.
The evening features the culinary offerings of McCalls catering, live entertainment, and the very best national and international art dealers and their treasures.
Prior to the evening's events, don't miss the annual mini-symposium at the de Young: Museum Fakes, Forgeries, and the Quest for Authenticity.
