Friday Nights at the de Young

With the official close of the 13th season of Friday Nights, the de Young is re-imagining the program to offer year-round activities and extended gallery access. Beginning this fall, we will be shifting to a monthly format. In order to maintain the openness of the de Young as one of San Francisco’s prized civic museums, our permanent collection galleries and events will remain free and open to the public on these nights. New strands of programming will consider the broader landscape of culture and ideas within a museum context through a mix of artist-driven performances; talks and conversations; film screenings; and more.

The official launch will be in February, 2018.
