Valentine’s weekend at the de Young was aflutter with fanciful attire and the complicated social constructs of modern romance. More than 750 young professionals made the Museum their destination for libations, dancing, culture and high art as ArtPoint celebrated the final weeks of Frank Stella: A Retrospective. Event Chairs Liz Curtis, Josh Elkes, and Julie Yarbrough opted for candy-colored décor, including larger-than-life inflatable gummy bears. Event proceeds support modern and contemporary initiatives at the Museums.
