Get your Valentine's Day started early and join ArtPoint as they transform the de Young into an ultra-chic, Dutch-inspired wonderland. On February 9th, you can combine your love of world-class art with your love of partying at the Wooden Shoe Be Mine? ArtPoint Valentine's Gala. Oh, and there will be dancing, decadent cockails, and chocolate tastings too!

Celebrate the arrival of Girl with a Pearl Earring and Rembrandt's Century, as well as the closing days of Rudolf Nureyev: A Life in Dance, with an after-hours party at the museum. Guests will get late-night access to the galleries, dancing to the beats of DJ Vin Sol, hors d’oeuvres, chocolate tasting, an open bar serving decadent cocktails, and, of course, world-famous works of art. This is a rendezvous for lovers and singles alike, so collect your sweetheart or all of your friends for an evening of extravagance.

If you want to go VIP for the night, VIP guests will enjoy a pre-party reception from 7 to 8 pm, tours of Girl with a Pearl Earring from 7 to 9 pm, and all-night access to a wide variety of appetizers, cocktails, and desserts in two exclusive VIP lounges. Sounds like a pretty awesome Valentine's Day pre-party to us!
