Past Discoveries and Future Relics
Chart your own evening of ARTventure and discover experiences and performances situated inside and outside the museum. To celebrate the closing of the Urbanauts fellowship and exhibition, we are mapping out and engaging some of our favorite underutilized spaces at the de Young. Embark on a roving sensory treasure hunt, set your own pace of discovery, and regroup for a finale. Be there for the sunset and bring your own flashlight! Shhhh. . .
