To celebrate the reopening of the de Young museum and premiere of Calder-Picasso, donors at the Fellow level and above are invited to a full day of exclusive access to the entire museum to see this extraordinary exhibition before it opens to the public. 

Calder-Picasso is the first major museum exhibition to explore the artistic relationship between Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso, two of the most innovative and influential artists of the 20th century. In more than 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs – including many iconic works – the exhibition presents a compelling visual conversation centered around the artists’ exploration of the void, or the absence of space, which both Calder and Picasso defined from the figure through to abstraction. With its US museum debut at the de Young museum, the exhibition will then travel to the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, and thereafter to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Access to the de Young Donor Reopening is available to donors at the Fellow level and above, Legacy Society members, Business Council members, and exhibition and programs sponsors. Complimentary timed tickets are required and we encourage you to use your membership number to book these online in advance and ensure you can visit at the most convenient time for you.

This ticket provides admission  to the entire museum, including special exhibitions Calder-Picasso, Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving, and Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI
