The Getty Center

Jeff took me on a date last week to The Getty Center in Los Angeles.  I had been wanting to visit  for years.  The Getty Center is truly an amazing {travertine} spectacle built high in the hills of Los Angeles in between Beverly Hills, Bel Air, and Pacific Palisades.   The view of the valley is spectacular…. despite the smog.

The art collection inside The Getty isn’t too shabby either.

And, wait until you see the grounds…….

    My husband, a L.A. native, always raved about The Getty. I’m bummed I never visited while living in California! Thanks so much for sharing these pics. The views look amazing 🙂

    I loved the Getty! The only thing was that it had no parking, so you had to park a like a mile away and then walk. I tried taking the bus, but it ended up being a nice walk.

    Wow, that place looks amazing. I will have to visit next time I’m in the area. Not sure when that will be though. I do love Southern California! 🙂

    Gorgeous. Happy you and Jeff were able to get away and again…a wee bit jealous. 🙂 For some odd reason I have never been to the Getty and have always wanted to go. I need to make it happen.

    Great pictures of a grand museum and education center. Originally, the Getty was known for its Greek and Roman antiquities, as well as, its breathtaking museum and grounds that overlooked the Pacific Ocean. I was priviledged to work for the Getty Trust as they planned this amazing structure. Thanks for sharing your adventure!

    Hey Angie! Great pictures! Looks like you had a great date!

    Sorry I haven’t been around in a while. I guess my reader didn’t make the leap when you moved to word press. I will try to update it. I saw you on facebook and thought I would come over 🙂 Hope you are doing well.

    what was your favorite art exhibit??
    I’m dying to see the chicago art museum and La Grande Jatte…
    before that I was all over seeing Starry Night in NYC at MOMA.. I did finally get to see that one… Plus I want to see any single painting by Dali….
    Oh And remember the post I wrote about Christo?? And the giant river art installment he is creating in Colorado?? Summer 2012.. I’m so there.
    I once saw the Rodin museum in Philidelphia that was awesome.. and the Rocky steps up the Phily museum of course…. getting lost in the Met… sheesh you started something here….

    Can we dream about Paris or Florence??

    I remember seeing the Getty Center on Project Runway last season. I thought is was so cool….especially that one awesome bed that belonged to royalty (I think that’s what it was anyway).

    I’m glad you enjoyed your time there.
