Friday Nights at the de Young | Golden Gate Park

Friday Nights at the de Young: Letterpress Demo & Modernist Jazz | Golden Gate Park       Friday Nights at the de Young is a free weekly after-hours art “happening” in the museum’s public spaces.

The event has a new theme every week, but typically includes an eclectic mix of live music, dance performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demos, hands-on art activities, and more. Plus, the observation tower is open until 8:15 pm.

All activities on Friday nights are free and open to the public, but sadly, if you want to visit the museum’s galleries, regular admission charges still apply.

Friday Nights at the de Young: Letterpress Demo & Modernist Jazz | Golden Gate Park       Schedule of Events | August 16, 2013

6-8:30 pm: Letterpress Demonstration – Piazzoni Murals Room

San Francisco Center for the Book presents abstract prints
 with Lisa Rappoport, Donna Seager, and Adam Ewing.

 Print a letterpress keepsake on one of SFCB’s vintage tabletop platen presses.

6-8:30 pm: The Art of Painting Music: Allegro (ma non troppo) by August Artist-in-Residence: Peggy Gyulai – Kimball Education Gallery

Peggy Gyulai’s work explores the connections between music and the expressive possibilities of paint on canvas. She approaches music as a subject, object, and inspiration, and, like Richard Diebenkorn, invokes the dynamic tension between abstraction and representation in order to create substance from the most ephemeral phenomena.

6:30-8:30 pm: Live Music by Matt Small and the Crushing Spiral Ensemble – Wilsey Court

Expressionist Abstractions: Bay Area Modernism Then and Now in Art and Music

In honor of Richard Diebenkorn and his bold artistic independence, integrity, and exploration, composer and bass player Matt Small leads the Crushing Spiral Ensemble in Wilsey Court. The band features the Bay Area’s best multigenre players performing works from the vast repertoire of Small’s original compositions, which blend modern jazz and contemporary classical aesthetics. Small is one of the groundbreaking voices contributing to the vibrant local new music scene today, keeping modernism alive and well in the Bay Area.

The performance is sponsored in part by the Zellerbach Family Foundation. Matt Small is a member of Intersection for the Arts’ Incubator Program.
