Friday Nights at the de Young | Sights and Sounds of Mexico

This event is expired.


This week highlights Ilan Bar-Lavi and Sonex playing Son Jarocho, a jazz and pop fusion, presented in partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco and the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival. It also features a special lecture on the photographer Rose Mandel.

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 Friday Nights prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails, and the observation tower is open until 8 pm. Artist Fellows, Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators all play an active role in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience for all.
