The Getty Center will host the College Night event on April 7 in the museum courtyard.
College Night is an event where college students get together and learn about the exhibitions that are at the museum.
“The event is for enjoying time with friends to socialize and enjoy yourself. At this event you meet and learn about different people’s backgrounds and heritage,” said Salvador Alamo, Getty Center visitor services associate.
The event will feature live music from a DJ, a performance by the band Rivoah and a set from the event’s headliner, Mystery Skull. There will also be meet-the-curator sessions.
Students will enjoy special presentations and tours. There will be music, food, and other activities especially for college students to enjoy and connect as intellectuals.
College Night will celebrate the event by showing the guests exhibitions. The Getty Center will feature displays such as “A Royal Passion: Queen Victoria” and Photography and Jackson Pollock’s “Mural.”
Students will get exclusive access to Pollock’s work that features the storied mural and behind-the-scenes exploration of the conservation process.
Attendees can connect with Queen Victoria through photographs and artifacts, discovering both her royal life and the concurrent development of photography.
The other exhibitions that will be on display are “Hiroshi Sugimoto: Past Tense,” “Hatched! Creating Form with Line” and “In Focus: Ansel Adams.”
The Getty Center is located at 1200 Getty Center Drive in Los Angeles.
The event is free and from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Guests are recommended to make reservations, but they are not required. If interested in attending, make reservations by going to www.getty.edu/collegenight and click the button under the registration.
