Event Details

Asian Art Museum’s $10 Thursday Nights (SF)

Looking for a great date night on the cheap? The Asian Art Museum is open until 8 pm on Thursdays and general admission is just $10 (that’s half-off). Plus Special exhibitions are now included with general admission tickets!

You can spend an evening in their beautiful building enjoying the galleries, fun talks, lively gatherings and intimate hangs with artists.

Except for certain special events, general admission tickets are $10 for adults, $8.50 for seniors, $7 for students and youths (age 13-17).

Testimony, an ongoing project by artist Eliza Gregory, explores the landscape and stories of contemporary immigration to San Francisco. Working with local nonprofits, service providers, students and communities, the project illuminates individual stories about what’s happening in this city right now while simultaneously intervening in the tropes they use to describe immigration.

For this, the second event in the Testimony project to take place at the Asian Art Museum, the artist and the museum will host a conversation about cultural education in the city. Highlighting initiatives by parents of public school children as well as the audience’s own experiences with cultural exchange, the event will introduce participants to each other and delve into family anecdotes.

They will also be launching a booklet that documents the first Testimony event, presenting interviews with service providers who serve immigrants in different parts of the city alongside audience perspectives and portraits.

Eliza Gregory is an artist and educator. Using images, relationships, interactions, interviews, events and other media, her work illuminates diverse experiences in a given community. She uses art to ask questions about contributing to community health, the role of cultural adaptation in contemporary society and how family relationships shape our lives. Trained as a fine art photographer, a creative writer and a social practice artist, Eliza lives and works in San Francisco.
