Summer Blooms at the Getty Center Los Angeles

The Getty Center Museum Garden is a creation of renowned artist Robert Irwin

Enjoy the gardens now in full bloom, as well as the dramatic architecture and breathtaking views, while you take in the Getty’s world-class collection of Western art and well known masterpieces such as Van Gogh’s “Irises”.

Among several special exhibitions at the Getty Center this summer, I recommend “TEN YEARS IN FOCUS: THE ARTIST AND THE CAMERA”, on view now through August. This exhibition of select pieces acquired by the Getty over the last ten years presents an eclectic group of images spanning 160 years and a display of vintage equipment, providing insight into photography as a unique marriage of art and technology. Photographs on view include groundbreaking 19th century images, an 1895 photograph by painter Winslow Homer, and works by contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol and David Hockney.

Admission to the Getty Center is FREE-no tickets or reservations required for general admission. Parking is $8.
