Art, Music and Dancing at de Young Museum

Friday Nights at the de Young: Opening Night of Season 10

Friday Nights at the de Young are after-hours art "happenings" that include a mix of live music, dance and theater performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and exhibition tours… at no charge. Special art exhibits i.e., Georgia O'Keefe exhibit, will have an entry fee. Everyone should remember our meetups last year the de Young had the Club Foot Orchestra in Sep., and John Santos Sextet in July. 

My favorite mix of music, art and for free: The Silver Moon Big band with Cynthia Glinka will be playing swing music from the 1920's and 30's. Dance lessons from 6-6:30 and music from 6:30-8:30. I can't dance but I'll dance with anyone wearing a dress ;) or we could group dance. This is a casually hosted meetup, therefore no meetup fee. 

From 5:30-6:00 we'll visit with the artist demonstrations. 

From 8-8:45 we'll meet at the museum cafe for prix-fixe menu and specialty cocktails. This is the time to socialize because it's easier to talk and relax outside the music and exhibits. This is paired with a Live Jazz Meetup group and they like to have fun.

    Not joining the waitlist because I can't make it by 5:30 for the artist visits. But I'll be there for the music and dancing and stick with that until it ends.

      Hi Wendy. Long time! I'll be arriving late too--6:30. Need to check the art projects at 6:30 & lecture at 7 in case any of that works for you. Will try and find folks after at cafeteria. Wish I could make the dancing, actually, but doesn't look like I will...

    Let's meet in the museum lobby directly across from the main entry doors at the guardrail. I'll be there from 5:10-5:30 to give you a small ☺ to stick on yourself. I'm not issuing name tags because it's a public event in the museum, not our private seminar. So, a little ☺ identifies jazz or museum meetup group. The schedule is 5:30 art event, 6:00 dance lessons, 6:30 big band, and 8:00-8:45 museum cafe for dining and socializing.

    I am sure that the prx fixe part is very expensive. HOw expensive is it?

    March 18, 2014

    • Digne

      The prix fixe menu is not expensive and sometimes inspired by the art event, e.g., Dutch theme. Other food is offered. The kitchen closes at 8:15 and after that it's cold food until 8:45 the cafe closes.

      Last year it was $25 for a starter, entrée and dessert. I've had it several times and everytime I thought it was very good.
