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.
Admission to the Villa is free, but please confirm that you would like to join the tour before October 25 by contacting Marilee, Clarissa Cervantes or Nora Nicosia. Their numbers and email addresses can be found in the Welcome Packet or you can leave a message below which we will forward to them.
