The de Young Open: On The Edge
The de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park
San Francisco, Ca.
Ohlone song: “I am dancing. On the edge of the world I am dancing.”
The de Young Open continues the museum’s long standing tradition of engaging the local community and showcasing the talent of Bay Area artists. The theme “On the Edge” derives from an ancient Ohlone song and correlates with the de Young’s celebration of its 125th anniversary and new benefit event.
“As the de Young celebrates its distinguished 125-year history in 2020, we are proud to announce The de Young Open, creating a platform for the visionary artists who enrich the Bay Area’s cultural landscape,” states Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. “Amid these uncertain times, this new initiative expands the Fine Arts Museums’ ongoing commitment to the Bay Area community and serves as a celebratory sign of our community’s strength and resilience. From local artists to art lovers, we look forward to welcoming our visitors back to the de Young museum this summer with this epochal exhibition.”
Timothy Anglin Burgard, Distinguished Senior Curator and Ednah Root Curator in Charge of American Art, headed a curatorial jury that included Claudia Schmuckli, Curator of Contemporary Art and Programming, and Karin Breuer, Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, as well as selected local artists and other cultural leaders.
Because of COVID19, it's been a while since I've been to a museum and it's been since the early 1970's that I even had artwork in one!! The de Young Museum might still be closed, but one day -- SOON? -- it’s going to be open (and in more ways than one). "The de Young Open" will begin as soon as the museum reopens.
I'm extremely excited to announce that my work "Mooring 28" has been selected to be shown in The de Young Open, a juried exhibition featuring Bay Area artist 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. This will be a “salon-style” exhibition, which will be installed edge-to-edge and floor-to-ceiling. While this installation style precludes the ideal placement of every individual work, it enables the Museum to display the maximum number of Bay Area artworks and underscores their desire to promote the local artist community by filling the 12,000-square-foot Herbst Exhibition Galleries. Some 6,190 artists sent 11,518 artworks spanning painting, drawing, printmaking, digital art, photography, sculpture, fiber art and video. After being evaluated by curators and artist judges, 881 works by 763 artists were selected.
Congrats to my fellow artists whose works were selected to be shown in the De Young! I’m excited to see our work side by side once the Museum reopens.
