Echoing the beautiful copper exterior of the de Young art museum, this charming journal captures the spirit of the building. After five years of closure, on October 15, 2005, the de Young inaugurated its new building—a state of the art facility that integrates art, architecture, and the natural landscape in one multi-faceted destination that inspires from around the world. Designed by the renowned Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron and Fong & Chan Architects in San Francisco, the new de Young provided San Francisco with a landmark art museum to showcase the museum’s priceless collections of American art from the 17th through the 20th centuries, Textile arts, and art of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.
