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.

6:30 pm

Adam Theis & NOT a Brass Band are the latest offshoot of the genre-bending 15 Year-running Jazz Mafia collective. Formed by five musicians who have had extensive experience playing in New Orleans-Style Brass groups, the group takes instrumentation into new and unexplored territories.

Many of the group’s new compositions use fresh rhythmic feels from Rock or EDM and combine melodies, harmony, and phrasing from Chamber, Jazz, and World musics. Of course, there is still a hint of New Orleans lingering beneath the surface as evidence of wild horn romps from time to time.

Every week, Friday Nights at the de Young offers art-making activities to encourage everyone of all ages to tap into their creativity.

The art table project this week features watercolor drawings inspired by special exhibition J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free.  We will use watercolor pencils to draw cityscapes and then use water pens to give the drawing a fluid look.
