Sunday, May 7, 2017 @10:00AM

The Getty Center, 1200 Getty Center Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90049

John will take us through highlights from the Research Institute’s collections, which include photographs, artist's books, prints and drawings, and manuscripts from Olafur Eliasson, Anselm Kiefer, Ed Ruscha, Robert Mapplethorpe, Wassily Kandinsky, and Jacques-Louis David. Following the tour, you can wander through the main galleries of the Getty Center to take in the special exhibits. Currently showing is Concrete Poetry: Words and Sounds in Graphic Space, featuring visual, verbal, and sonic experiments attempting to convey meaning through design as well as through the words themselves. May 7 is also the last day to catch Degas: “Russian Dancers” and the Art of the Pastel, which highlights the Impressionist master’s drawings of subjects very different from the ballerinas for which he is famous. And of course there is also the Getty’s famous garden with its breathtaking views of LA.

Cost: This event is free, as is admission to the Getty Center.
RSVP: Please RSVP below. Space is limited to 40 people. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
