The Silver Strand Art Group will tour the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades on Monday, November 5.  The museum, fashioned after an Italian villa, is located in a beautiful setting above Pacific Coast Highway and has lovely gardens.  The museum has an extraordinary collection of Greek, Etruscan and Roman antiquities.

The group will visit a special exhibition, The Last Days of Pompeii, co-organized by the J.Paul Getty Museum and the Cleveland Museum of Art in association with the Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec.  As special treat, the tour will be led by Marilee Karlsen, co-Chair of the Silver Strand Art Group. Marilee has led groups as a docent at the Getty Villa for 3 years.

Carpools will leave the Silver Strand at noon. Please contact Marilee (see below) if you can help with this.

Lunch will be at the charming outdoor cafe which has a great selection of sandwiches and salads.
