Herbst Exhibition Galleries

To celebrate the premiere of The de Young Open, donors at the Fellow level and above are invited to an exclusive Donor Preview Day to see this extraordinary exhibition before it opens to the public. In honor of the de Young museum’s 125th anniversary, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are hosting The de Young Open, a juried community art exhibition of submissions by artists living in the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. 

Works of art in The de Young Open are hung “salon-style,” installed edge to edge and floor to ceiling, filling the 12,000-square-foot Herbst Exhibition Galleries with 877 artworks by 762 Bay Area artists.

Donor Preview Day 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.

Please note: artwork on view in The de Young Open will be available for purchase online, directly from the artists, beginning Saturday, October 10. Visit the exhibition webpage for details.

This ticket does not include admission to Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving
