Friday Nights at the de Young
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 special Friday Night 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.
Season 11 has been announced. Friday Nights Season 11 will take place from April 17–November 27, 2015.
The Season Sponsor of Friday Nights at the de Young is Hanson Bridgett. Additional support is provided by the Koret Foundation, the San Francisco Auxiliary of the Fine Arts Museums, and Wells Fargo.
