The de Young Open
The de Young Open submissions portal has now closed. Artists will be informed of the status of their submissions by the end of July. Exhibition dates have not yet been announced, but we look forward to sharing them here soon. Please look to our website for future updates and thank you for your interest. We hope you continue to make art and stay safe during these challenging times.
In celebration of the de Young museum’s 125th anniversary, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco is hosting The de Young Open, a juried community art exhibition welcoming submissions by artists who live in the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma. The de Young Open continues the museum’s longstanding tradition of engaging the local community and showcasing the talent of Bay Area artists, who will be able to offer their pieces for sale and retain 100 percent of the proceeds.
The de Young curators look forward to filling the 12,000-square-foot Herbst Exhibition Galleries with over 1,000 works of art by Bay Area artists in The de Young Open, the first exhibition of this scale at the Museums.
