Join us on Friday, October 9, 9:30 am–5:15 pm, for our Member Preview Day of The de Young Open. In celebration 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 from artists who live in the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. The de Young Open continues the Museums’ long-standing tradition of engaging the local community and showcasing the talent of Bay Area artists, who will be able to offer their pieces for sale and retain 100 percent of the proceeds. As a member, you are invited to preview these 877 artworks by 762 Bay Area artists in The de Young Open with an advance reservation of Member Preview Days: The de Young Open timed tickets.
