On the Edge

On Thursday, October 6, 2022, celebrate the power of art and possibility with museum supporters, civic leaders, and luminaires from across the community at our annual benefit, On the Edge. Help raise critical support for a new era of innovative programming that is inclusive and accessible for Bay Area audiences and beyond.

The benefit will coincide with two phenomenal exhibitions on view at the de Young this fall—a multisensory exhibition of Ramses II’s accomplishments and Egyptian treasures, Ramses the Great and the Gold of Pharaohs, and a 50-year retrospective of an American icon, Faith Ringgold: American People.

For more information, or to purchase tickets or a table, email or call 415.750.3604. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Christa Sundell, director of corporate partnerships, at
