Friday Nights at the de Young presents "Where To? The Call of the Times," a pop-up installation of visual art, music and gallery talks by students

This event is expired.

Our communities are responding in different ways to the social issues of our times such as the recession, human rights, and climate change. The challenges ahead are dynamic and often troubling, yet we will continue to find solutions through activism and art. Where are we now, and where are we going?

Hosted by the de Young’s New Generations student and faculty advisory board, Where To? The Call of the TImes features visual art, films, performances, gallery talks, and artist demonstrations by students from California universities and colleges.

Check out this one-night-only pop-up gallery that will inhabit the “free zone” of the de Young museum. Bring your friends and spend a night out in Golden Gate Park!
