The de Young Open Salon

Published October 20, 2020

In celebration of the de Young museum’s 125th anniversary, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are hosting The de Young Open, a juried community art exhibition of submissions by artists who live in the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma.

Works of art in The de Young Open are hung “salon-style,” installed edge to edge and floor to ceiling, which enables a maximum number of works to be displayed. The de Young filled the 12,000-square-foot Herbst Exhibition Galleries with 877 artworks by 762 Bay Area artists in The de Young Open.

ARC Living Artist Clark Gussin is among the participating artists.

The exhibition runs from October 10, 2020 - January 3, 2021 at the de Young museum: Golden Gate Park, 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, San Francisco, CA 94118.
