New this year, join us for the On the Edge after-party premiere, Late Night. Enjoy after-hours access to the museum, craft cocktails, late-night bites, playful pop-up activations, dancing, and performances featuring local brands, artists, and musicians that represent the unique, edgy spirit of the Bay Area.

The benefit will coincide with two phenomenal exhibitions on view at the de Young this fall: a multisensory exhibition of the great pharaoh’s accomplishments and treasures, Ramses the Great and the Gold of Pharaohs, and a fifty-year retrospective of one of the most influential figures in American art, Faith Ringgold: American People.

On the Edge and Late Night raise critical support for a new era of innovative programming at the Fine Arts Museums that is inclusive and accessible for audiences from the Bay Area and beyond.
