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 Hamon Tower observation level is open until 8 pm.
Every week, Friday Nights at the de Young offers art-making activities to encourage everyone of all ages to tap into their creativity.
Visitors can try their hand at making origami ships, a popular subject matter of J.M.W. Turner's paintings.
