Herbst Exhibition Galleries

Access Days provide an opportunity for visitors with specific needs to experience our special exhibitions when the museum is closed to the general public. Access Days feature extra blue zone parking spaces, extra seating inside and outside the exhibition, portable large-print editions of exhibition labels, docent-led tours, audio tours, and printed versions of the audio tour script. Wheelchairs, folding stools, ASL interpretation (upon request two weeks in advance), and materials in alternative formats are available upon request.

This fall, the de Young Museum is hosting the internationally acclaimed exhibition, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983, organized by Tate Modern in London. This powerful and provocative exhibition focuses on the pivotal decades between 1963 and 1983 when conversations about race and identity defined national politics and social ideals. The de Young’s presentation uniquely includes pieces connected to the San Francisco Bay Area.
