Friday Nights at the de Young is a free after-hours art “happening” in the museum’s public spaces.

Plus, the observation tower is open until 8:00 pm! There’s also free Museum Admission which includes access to the permanent collection galleries. Come and welcome internationally renowned musicians from the legendary Mills Center for Contemporary Music (CCM), recently celebrating its 50th anniversary, for a rare evening of sound installations and especially performances in various locations throughout the building. Maggi Payne will provide electroacoustic ambient “atmospheres” throughout the evening to accompany the views from the Hamon Observation Tower, conspiring with the weather and changes in light. This event is free to attend.
