Upcoming Exhibits at the de Young Museum: 2019 Edition
The de Young Museum in San Francisco has over 100 years of programming but it remains just as relevant as ever. Exciting exhibits challenge the concept of static museum space and its fine arts collections continue to engage audiences over time.
Incoming exhibits will break the fourth wall this 2019 season. Visitors can look forward to a collaboration between the museum’s artist-in-residence and Google Arts & Culture. Beyond participatory projects, Claude Monet’s later paintings will be on display through May and the internationally-acclaimed “Art in the Age of Black Power” make its San Francisco debut. Plus, you’ll see Ed Hardy in a whole new light.
Feb. 16 through May 27, 2019
Buy tickets in advance for this popular exhibition that nearly 50 pieces that showcase the painter’s final years.Claude Monet spent most of his time at home and in his garden at Giverny toward the end of his life, which is reflected in his works.

Yes, that Ed Hardy. Before the tattoo artist’s drawings became mass-produced merchandise by clothing designer Christian Audigier, Hardy worked for 20 years as a tattoo artist footed in Japanese ukiyo-e culture and traditional American tattoo design. In this debut museum retrospective, Hardy’s childhood sketches, paintings and designs that date back to the 1950s will be on display. Hardy also delves into aging tattoos and aged designs, “a faded world almost extinct,” says the artist on the de Young website.
The de Young’s artist-in-residence Ana Prvački is noted for her playful sense of humor that shines through her work. It’s only natural that her upcoming project will be set in the de Young’s public spaces, where everyone has access. Prvački reimagines museum spaces with a special collaboration with Google Arts & Culture (those responsible for the selfie/ fine art-likeness app).
Details are mum from both the museum and Google, but viewers can expect short, cheeky videos accessible via mobile device throughout the museum.

The highly-anticipated, internationally-acclaimed exhibition will make its way to San Francisco this Fall. Organized by Tate Modern, London, Soul of a Nation displays works from over 60 artists created during a turbulent 20-year period in America from the 1960s to the 1980s. It begins with the March on Washington in 1963 and matures into Malcolm X and the Black Panther movement. Of course, such turbulence continues and evolves today, which is at the heart of this exhibition.
