"Farwell Week at the Old de Young Museum"
2000-12-25 until 2000-12-31
Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
San Francisco, CA, USA

The M.H. de Young Memorial Museum will close the doors to its earthquake-damaged building for the last time on December 31, 2000 to make way for a new museum that will open in 2005. A series of special events planned for the week of December 26-31 will allow the public to bid farewell to the old facility and celebrate the de Young and its role in the community.

During the final week the admission fee to the de Young will be waived, and visitors will be allowed to take flash photographs. Programs will include photo opportunities for the public and family, childrens activities, a 24-hour museum marathon, a midnight tour, and closing ceremonies. Museum visitors will also be able to view the special exhibitions The de Young Museum: A Work in Progress, which uses historic photographs to chronicle the history of the de Young Museum and its buildings, and A New de Young in Golden Gate Park: Concept Plan by Herzog and de Meuron, which show plans and renderings of the New de Young by architects Herzog & de Meuron and landscape designer Walter Hood.
