Friday Nights at the de Young | Golden Gate Park

Friday Nights at the de Young: 2013 Season Opening Night | 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.

This is the fictionalized account of how Dutch master painter Johannes Vermeer’s most famous work might have come to be, told from the point of view of Griet (Scarlett Johansson), a teenage girl who leaves her family’s care in the country to become a servant for the Vermeer household in the comparatively bustling, canal-laden burgh of Delft. She catches the eye of the taciturn, reclusive Vermeer (Colin Firth), and over a period of time, he begins to craft her portrait.
