Ceiling art at the Getty Villa (PPAC #52)

This is a re-visit from my trip to the Getty Villa, a small museum in Pacific Palisades. Would you believe if I told you admissions to the Getty Villa are free? Plus it’s right on the coast — but watch out — the driveway is very steep.

Compared to the much larger Getty Musuem, the Getty Villa is less than 1/3 of that (306,000,000 sq. ft. vs 105,000,000 sq. ft). But I think the Getty Villa has more art despite it’s size — you see the art in the details of the building and the garden. Whenever I go to the Getty Musuem, I can only recall the garden and the view of the 405 and that’s it and I’ve been to the Getty Villa multiple times.

One of things I remembered from my trip to the Getty Villa was admiring the ceiling art in the courtyard. I love the soft blue, gold, and cream color combination.

  1. Isn’t that an amazing place, Julie? When I visited, I got too close to the Guttenburg exhibit and a guard came over and told me to move away. I hate being blind and too interested. I don’t know if he thought I was going to smash the glass or what. LOL I’m so glad you shared this beautiful museum with PPAC readers today. I’m sure you will have many more posts to follow. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Marsha! I almost shared the large garden from the Getty Center for PPAC…but then I realized the Getty Center admissions are not free therefore did not qualify for PPAC unfortunately. Seeing the Guttenburg would excite me too, I am sure I would try to get too close before a guard would tell me step back.

  2. 🙂 It’s been far too long since I’ve gone there. It is so beautiful!
    Last time I wanted to visit it was closed due to renovation works. It’s amazing and everybody who gets the chance should go and view the estate and the exhibitions.
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
