SAN FRANCISCO — Friday, March 29 marks the highly anticipated kick-off to season nine of Friday Nights at the de Young Museum.

This series, funded by the Winifred Johnson Clive Foundation, The William Randolph Hearst Foundation, the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the James Irvine Foundation’s Arts Innovation Fund, enlivens the museum each week with a unique theme often tying in with the special exhibitions and permanent collections on view.

Along with Friday Nights programming, the de Young Café offers a delicious Friday Nights menu and specialty cocktails, and the museum’s observation tower is open until 8 p.m.

Artist fellows, artists-in-residence, curators, scholars and arts educators all play an active role in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience for the entire community.

“The people who come to the de Young on Friday Nights reflect the wide spectrum of voices in and around the Bay Area, which is in large part thanks to the artists we invite to perform,” said Renee Baldocchi, director of public programs at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

The grand opening on Friday, March 29 will welcome a surprise guest performer from Steve Silver’s “Beach Blanket Babylon,” the world’s longest running musical revue.

In addition, two-time Grammy Award-winning musician Mads Tolling and his quartet will perform; a recreation of Vermeer’s studio, a closing reception for Artist Fellows Andy Diaz Hope and Laurel Roth, hands-on art activities, and a scavenger hunt by Clash SF will be available; and the 2003 film “Girl with a Pearl Earring” will be screened in honor of the special exhibition “Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis,” currently on view at the de Young.

Season Nine continues each Friday night through Nov. 29 offering a full roster of programs.

Beginning April 26, the de Young will present a Friday Nights mini-series, Orange Nights, presented in partnership with the Consulate General of the Netherlands in San Francisco. In conjunction with special exhibitions”Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis” and “Rembrandt’s Century,” Orange Nights celebrates Dutch art with DJs, live music and dance parties, lectures, films, light shows, star-gazing, tableaux vivants and more.

Visit deyoungmuseum.org/fridays for the complete Friday Nights schedule. Admission to Friday Night programming is free. Admission tickets are required to view the galleries and special exhibitions.

The de Young Museum is in Golden Gate Park, 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, in San Francisco. For more information go to deyoungmuseum.org or call 415-750-3600.

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, comprising the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, is the largest public arts institution in San Francisco.
