At the Getty Center
College Night 2015 highlights two special exhibitions organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum: J. M. W. Turner: Painting Set Free, which brings together over 60 oil paintings and watercolors to focus on the creativity of Turner's final years, and Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography featuring the work of seven photographers who are exploring the essence of photography, distilling it to its basic components of light-sensitive emulsions and chemical development.
Outside the galleries, enjoy live music by the UCLA-based band Eva B. Ross Foundation.
College night is free; advance reservations are recommended. Call (310) 440-7300, or reserve online. Parking is free for College Night; please bring your college ID.
The J. Paul Getty Trust is an international cultural and philanthropic institution devoted to the visual arts that includes the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the Getty Foundation. The J. Paul Getty Trust and Getty programs serve a varied audience from two locations: the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Getty Villa in Malibu.
The J. Paul Getty Museum collects in seven distinct areas, including Greek and Roman antiquities, European paintings, drawings, manuscripts, sculpture and decorative arts, and photographs gathered internationally. The Museum's mission is to make the collection meaningful and attractive to a broad audience by presenting and interpreting the works of art through educational programs, special exhibitions, publications, conservation, and research.
