The de Young opens to the public with a community art exhibition

In celebration of the de Young museum’s 125th anniversary, and on the occasion of reopening to the public after six months, the museum presents The de Young Open, a juried community art exhibition by artists from all nine Bay Area counties. Representing the breadth and depth of Bay Area creativity, 6,188 artists submitted 11,514 artworks. Working solely from images, a jury of curators and artists selected 877 artworks for display online and in the gallery. Exhibiting artists who choose to offer their work for sale retain 100 percent of the proceeds, the de Young’s way of further supporting the local art community.
