On the Edge

Our On the Edge benefit has had to be postponed, and we look forward to holding this celebration of the Bay Area’s unique intersection of art, design, activism and innovation, and fundraiser for our programming in fall 2020 instead.


Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the de Young

San Francisco has always had a thing for its dreamers, doers, creators, and thinkers: people asking the big and challenging questions of our time.

This annual benefit brings together a new generation of museum supporters, civic leaders, and luminaries from the Bay Area’s diverse art, design, tech, fashion, and philanthropic communities. On the Edge raises critical support for a new era of innovative programming at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco that is inclusive and accessible for audiences from the Bay Area and beyond. Help us celebrate the power of art and possibility.

On the Edge 2020 honors pioneering feminist artist Judy Chicago; Oakland-based, artist and landscape designer Walter Hood; and technologist and designer, John Maeda for their extraordinary achievements and commitment to the arts community. This event also marks the beginning of the de Young’s 125th celebratory year of connecting stories, ideas, and people.
