Study Day LA: The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa
Thursday, May 8
Join Director John Wilson and fellow art enthusiasts for an exciting day at Malibu’s Getty Villa. In addition to time with the extraordinary permanent collection of antiquities, we will have a private tour of the exhibition Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections. We will also be treated to an exclusive visit to the Getty Villa Conservation Laboratories.
Heaven and Earth showcases some 170 rare and important works of art, many never before lent to the United States, that offer a fascinating glimpse of the soul and splendor of the early Christian Byzantine Empire. Included in the exhibition are mosaics, manuscripts, jewelry and ceramics that trace the development of Byzantine visual culture from the fourth to the fifteenth century. The exquisite icons pre-date the Timken’s own collection of Russian icons.
Timken trips offer special benefits and as part of the day we’ll receive an exclusive tour of the Conservation Studio for antiquities, located in the Villa Ranch House, once the residence of J. Paul Getty.
This exclusive trip is open to 24 people only, due to Conservation Lab security. Please reserve your spot early.
PLEASE NOTE that the Conservation Laboratories visit has SOLD OUT but, at a discounted rate, you can join us for all other activities. Please call 619.239.5548 x102 to sign up.
