Friday Nights at the de Young: Fall 2017 Jazz Kickoff w/ 34-Piece Orchestra | Golden Gate Park
Every Friday Through November 23rd.
Submitted by the Event Organizer
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 fall, Friday Nights at the de Young switches to a monthly format. The permanent collection galleries and events will remain free and open to the public on these nights. New strands of programming will consider the broader landscape of culture and ideas within a museum context through a mix of artist-driven performances; talks and conversations; film screenings; and more.
Join in Friday, September 8, for a preview of their revamped series kicking off with Roscoe Mitchell x Number 197, featuring the legendary jazz musician and a 34-piece orchestra live in Wilsey Court. More events will follow on October 13 and November 10, with the official launch in February, 2018.
Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
*All activities and admission to the permanent galleries on Friday nights are free and open to the public, but if you want to visit the museum's Special Exhibits, regular admission charges still apply.
