Submitted by the Event Organizer
It’s really been 5 years since the opening of the de Young Museum‘s twisted tower of slowly greening copper plates. As a little “thank you” gift, the museum is lowering the price of its permanent exhibit from $11 to just five bucks. But it’s for one day only.
Come see pieces from their collections of American Painting, American Decorative Art, African Art, Art of the Americas, Oceanic Art &Textile Art.
Bonus!: The $5 ticket is also good at the Legion of Honor for the opening day of Japanesque: The Japanese Print in the Era of Impressionism. $5 tickets can only be purchased at the de Young.
