Event Details

Friday Nights at the de Young | Fall 2018

One of San Francisco’s most celebrated after-hours museum events returns for a fall season of 2018.

These nine Friday Nights feature free admission to the main-level galleries highlighted by a reinterpretation of contemporary art in their permanent collection and new acquisitions called Specters of Disruption. In addition, Friday Nights will offer reduced-price tickets of $14 to the exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions from 6–8:30 pm.

Through social-media moments and in-person dialogue, visitors can engage and commune with the art and with one another in a warm and welcoming setting. Enjoy specialty drinks and mocktails, coffees, teas, and snacks. Bring your friends. Strike a pose at the selfie wall. Listen to music. Make art. Activities take place from 6–8:30 pm.

For the next six weeks, Friday Nights at the de Young offers a dynamic line-up of dance performances and lessons. This month features salsa, tango, bhangra, and urban street dance.

Join them for an evening with the street dance theater company, Embodiment Project (EP) featuring original music performed live by Joey Mintz, a multi-instrumentalist who focuses on live beat-making alongside Sandu Ndu and guavalove (of Oakland afro-indie-soul group Bells Atlas).

Embodiment Project is quickly gaining critical acclaim for their seamless intersection of high-energy street dance, live song, choreo-poetry, and theater.  Get ready to learn some new moves.
