Join us for the return of Friday Nights at the de Young! This special Fall season runs for nine Fridays from September 28–November 23. All Friday nights will feature reduced admission to the special exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions, and free admission to the main-level galleries. Advance tickets to the exhibition are recommended and can be purchased below.
On Friday, October 12, we welcome to the Piazzoni Murals Room the Muslim entrepreneur Lisa Vogl, co-founder of Verona, the first modest fashion line to be carried at Macy’s. Vogl will tell her story beginning at 7 pm, with a Q+A to follow. This appearance is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
Inspired by the art and fashion of the show? Get your creativity on at our art-making station in Wilsey Court. 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 courtesy of MIPSTERZ, a non-profit initiative carving out positive creative spaces for Muslim Americans and other marginalized groups.
Another not-to-be-missed Friday Night experience is the Turrell skyspace (located outside the museum sculpture garden) which changes colors beginning 20 minutes before sunset each night.
Admission is free to the main-level galleries and performances in Piazzoni Murals Room and Wilsey Court. Tickets to Contemporary Muslim Fashions are reduced to $14 adult and $6 youth on Friday Nights between 5–8:30 pm. Advance tickets to the exhibition are recommended.
Interested in more? The Contemporary Muslim Fashions Friday Night Tour Package includes admission to the special exhibition, a docent-led tour, and a complimentary bevarage (choice of beer, wine, or a non-alcoholic selection). Learn more.
