Friday Nights at the de Young: Jazz & Native American Poetry | GG Park
In the past, Friday Nights at the de Young has been a free after-hours art “happening” in the museum’s public spaces.
New for 2018, San Francisco’s original after-hours museum event has been re-envisioned and returns this year with a focus on fashion. The 2018 fall season of Friday Nights at the de Young highlights the exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions, on view from September 22, 2018–January 6, 2019.
At this fall’s events, visitors will enjoy discounted admission, extended bar offerings, a special social media lounge, in-gallery art making, and vibes and voices from around the Muslim world. Visitors are invited to this collaborative platform for discussion around the important social, political, and feminist ideas raised by the exhibition.
In the past, the event had a new theme each time and typically included 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 was free to go up and was open until 8 pm (we expect the observation tower to still be free). Please note, we’re unsure if the activities will be free like in the past, or if admission will be required. It sounds like admission to the museum will no longer be free though, but a discounted admission will be offered (price TBA).
