The Getty

A few shots from a visit to the Getty Center over the foggy weekend –

111012478635I forgot how visually indulgent museums are. It’s a luxury, to slowly wander through the rooms and halls and let your eyes take in all the beauty and creativity before you. The paintings are all hanging there, sculptures frozen, for eyes to behold, admire, question, and pass.

I’ve often considered the museums in LA to be sorely lacking in interesting permanent collections or rotating exhibitions. In turn, I’ve favored local gallery exhibitions within our small art communities much more. But this past weekend was lovely, and a quiet appreciation for museums was renewed within me. Looking forward to more museum days ahead.
