Friday Nights at the de Young are after-hours art happenings that include a mix of live music, dance and theater performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and exhibition tours. Local artists conduct drop-in workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in conversations about the creative process. The café offers a delicious prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails, and the Hamon Tower observation level is open until 8 pm. Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators play active roles in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience.

Tonight, June 24: Street Dance Theater
Join us for a evening with street dance theater company, Embodiment Project (EP), feat. Joey Mintz (multi-instrumentalist and live beat-maker) with Sandu Ndu and guavalove (of the Oakland afro-indie-soul group Bells Atlas). EP is quickly gaining critical acclaim for their seamless intersection of high-energy street dance, live song, choreo-poetry, and theater. Museum visitors have the opportunity to engage in various street dance styles like house, waacking, and classic hop hop, plus play among these amazing dancers throughout the evening.
Programming and general admission to the permanent collection galleries are free of charge during Friday Nights at the de Young. A $20 surcharge applies to visit the special exhibition galleries.
Support for Friday Nights at the de Young is provided by Hanson Bridgett, the Koret Foundation, and the Wells Fargo Foundation.
