Local Color – A Day At The Getty Museum

Today we met my parents at the Getty Museum. It was a gorgeous day to be outside in the garden and venture out somewhere to see some art.

I have been to the “Old Getty” aka the Getty Villa years ago (it was gorgeous, and I’d love to go there again), but I’d never been to the “new Getty” (okay, so 1997 isn’t exactly new)…

Anyway, that’s where we went today.

Here are some photos of our day.

Waiting to get on the tram that takes us up to the museum.

Gorgeous detailed, giant urn

Crazy unusual vase

This vase is Bohemian- which I just realized I might be!

This piece is labeled as "Bohemian or Italian." I just loved it.

It was a great day of sharing culture with the kids, and seeing a Los Angeles landmark and learning something new. It was great to spend some time with my parents, and doing something together as a family. We have SO many things to do in Los Angeles and we don’t advantage of them as often as I think we should. We’ve been wanting to visit the Getty for 14 years, for goodness’ sake! 🙂

Perhaps in 2012 we can cross a few more landmarks off our list.

Here’s to more art and culture and local color in all of our lives!

Bye for now, Getty! We'll be back some day!
