Mads Tolling Quartet
This spring, join us for season 9 of Friday Nights at the de Young and celebrate the museum’s collections as well as the special exhibitions Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis and Rembrandt’s Century.
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 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.
Public programs are free and open to the public.
