Sponsored by The Getty Research Institute

Depart from the Sheraton Hotel by bus to the Getty Villa in Malibu, the original location of the J. Paul Getty Museum. The Villa re-opened in early 2006 with a new mission as an educational center and museum dedicated to the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria. The day will include a private tour of the Getty Villa, including a curator-led tour of the special exhibition, Sicily: Art and Invention between Greece and Rome. The second part of the day will include a behind-the-scenes tour with an Education Specialist who will talk about the highlights and history of the Villa, including the architecture, the garden, and the renovated Ranch House, which was the original residence of J. Paul Getty. You will have several hours of free time to have lunch on your own in the café, wander the site, and see the views before meeting at 3:30 to take the bus back to the Sheraton.
