Join us for the final Friday of our 2018 Friday Nights at the de Young series.
Tonight, we welcome all Bay Area communities to enjoy the groundbreaking exhibition, Contemporary Muslim Fashions with their friends and families. This is the final night of extended hours for the exhibition at reduced prices. Advance tickets for the exhibition are recommended. Admission to the main-level galleries is free.
Beginning at 6 pm, our musical guest Keenan Webster & Talking Wood, brings the West African Kora string instrument to Wilsey Court. Led by multi-instrumentalist Keenan Webster, Talking Wood is devoted to sharing the melodic and rhythmic richness of African music and healing the spirit of the community. Musical performances include African standards and crosses through various genres from jazz to the blues and reggae.
Inspired by the art and fashion of Contemporary Muslim Fashions? Get your creativity on at our art-making station in the Piazzoni Murals Room. A selection of food and drink will be available from the Museum Cafe, including halal choices and creative non-alcoholic “mocktails.” Enjoy a musical playlist compiled by MIPSTERZ, a non-profit initiative stubbornly dedicated to carving out positive creative spaces for Muslim Americans and other marginalized groups. The Museum Store will have exclusive books and special designs by designers featured in the show.
Another not-to-be-missed Friday Night experience is the James Turrell Skyspace (located in the Osher Sculpture Garden), which activates and begins to change color 20 minutes before sunset each night.
