Have fun storming the art world with today's side deal: for $49, you get one ticket to French Kiss, a Bastille Day celebration (an $85 value) hosted by ArtPoint at the de Young Museum. This event takes place on Wednesday, July 14, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
ArtPoint's celebration of the storming of the Bastille doffs a collective hat to the dawn of the French Revolution, and subsequently, the modern era itself. This museum-based soiree is a chance to dress festively in your choice of modern duds, Toulouse-Lautrec pants, or bloodstained Marie Antoinette gown, and enjoy light, French-inspired fare while sipping specialty cocktails (including some variations made with the notoriously poetic absinthe) from an open bar. Lose your cultural cool and dance like it's 1789, then break for intellectual and visual stimulation with an after-hours viewing of Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d' Orsay. This exhibition presents nearly 100 works of mid- to late-19th-century painters, many of them French, including Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Sisley.
