Friday Nights at the de Young
Coming Spring 2019
San Francisco’s most celebrated after-hours museum event returns for a fall season. These nine Friday Nights feature free admission to the main-level galleries highlighted by a reinterpretation of contemporary art in our permanent collection and new acquisitions called Specters of Disruption. In addition, Friday Nights will offer reduced-price tickets to the exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions.
Through social-media moments and in-person dialogue, visitors can engage and commune with the art and with one another in a warm and welcoming setting. Enjoy specialty drinks and mocktails, coffees, teas, and snacks. Bring your friends. Strike a pose at the selfie wall. Listen to music. Make art.
Stay tuned for more updates by signing up for our e-newsletter.
Admission is free to the main-level galleries and performances in Piazzoni Murals Room and Wilsey Court during Friday Nights. Tickets to Contemporary Muslim Fashions are reduced to $14 adult and $6 youth on Friday Nights between 5–8:30 pm. Advance tickets to the exhibition are recommended.
Interested in more? The Contemporary Muslim Fashions Friday Night Tour Package includes admission to the special exhibition, a docent-led tour, and a complimentary bevarage (choice of beer, wine, or a non-alcoholic selection). Learn more.
Support for Friday Nights at the de Young is provided by Hanson Bridgett and the Koret Foundation. The media sponsor is the San Francisco Chronicle.
