We invite you, and all Bay Area families, to attend the second annual de Youngsters Day Out on Saturday, March 11, 2023.

This event is open to every Bay Area family and free of charge. The in-person, all-day event will include hands-on art-making activities, in-gallery conversations and entertainment led by teaching artists and community partners, collaborations with local contemporary artists interpreting our permanent collection, and live performances and music in Wilsey Court.

Proceeds from the event support our Equity School Partnership Project, which provides in-classroom instructional support, art supplies, and transportation for students who do not typically visit the de Young.

Mark your calendars for March 11 — we hope to see you there!
