Free Friday Nights at the de Young

Join us for season 9 of Friday Nights at the de Young beginning March 29, 2013! Programs include after-hours art “happenings” that include a mix of live music, dance performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, special performances, hands-on art activities and exhibition tours (5–8:45 p.m.).

Each evening has a unique theme and ties in with the special exhibitions and permanent collections at the de Young. Local artists conduct drop-in workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in artist/curator conversations about the creative process.

The café offers a delicious Friday Nights menu and specialty cocktails, and the observation tower is open until 8 pm. Artist Fellows, Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators all play an active role in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience for all.

Walk in and experience all public programs free! To view the permanent collection or special exhibitions, admission tickets are required.

    Hi everyone! I uploaded a photo listing all the free events in the museum tonight :)

    I don't remember whether regular museum admission is free, though. All of the programs are in areas that normally do not require tickets.

    • Nicholas W.

      You have to get a ticket for the exhibition areas. But the special events on the lobby and lower floor are free :)

    I won't be able to get there until around 7pm. Is this going to be a problem? Will there still be a "group" to check in with, or should I just plan on going on my own?

    • Brittany C

      I'll be at the entrance area from about 5:30 to 6, otherwise look for me throughout, I'm in a peacock feather printed dress with a blue cardigan.

    Would people be up for drinks afterwards? Say at The Little Shamrock? (closest bar from de young)

  • Brittany C

    Holy crap guys, we've got a big group! Realistically it will be rather hard for all of us to stay together. I'm working on a way to make us identifiable, perhaps stickers? I'll also be in something easy to spot. Perhaps I'll break out my zebra print dress for the occasion? Either way, look for an email later this week with more details.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
