Each week, Friday Nights at the de Young presents a unique theme that often relates to a special exhibition or notable pieces in the permanent collections on view at the museum.

Programming includes performances, curator talks and interaction with local artists, as well as seasonal à la carte menus at the de Young Café and specialty cocktails.

Visitors will have the opportunity to experience the museum in an entirely different nightlife setting, whether choosing to attend a presentation, participate in projects hosted by de Young artists-in-residence or join in a dance lesson in the middle of Wilsey Court.

 

Tower time

The museum’s observation tower also has extended hours for Friday Nights until 8 p.m., giving visitors a unique evening view of Golden Gate Park.

“Friday Nights at the de Young is a series of truly grassroots gatherings that have been bringing the community together for a decade now. It draws people of all ages and backgrounds from throughout the Bay Area in celebration of our dynamic local culture. With the diverse performances and activities, in addition to the convenient extended hours and free admission to programs, there’s something for everyone at Friday Nights,” said Renee Baldocchi, director of public programs at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

Some of the evening’s themes tie into the special exhibition “Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George,” on view at the de Young through May 11. a Fe, New Mexico, will give a special lecture in Koret Auditorium at 7 p.m.

 

Diverse programs

Visitors are additionally invited to attend the closing reception for the de Young Artist Fellows’ show, “Paper and Blade: Storytelling Under the Knife,” beginning at 6 p.m. in Kimball Education Gallery.

Season 10 continues each Friday night through Nov. 28, with a diverse array of new programs. From May 12 through June 9, the legendary hats from long-running musical Steve Silver’s Beach Blanket Babylon will be featured at the de Young and Friday Nights.

Visit deyoungmuseum.org/fridays for the complete Friday Nights schedule.
