I am writing to pass on this little jewel of art and culture that I would have never known about had it not been for some friends giving me some great advice as to where to visit while in Southern California. If you ever find yourself near L.A. you HAVE to visit the Getty Center. I had no idea what I was in for, I thought it would be just another fine art museum, I was so wrong! I knew I was in for something special when I realized that the way up to the center which is located on the top of a small mountain was by a little train.
This is easily the most amazing place I have been in this country. Talk about inspirational the beautiful, colorful gardens, a panoramic view of L.A. combined with art from the last 500 years or so, gave me about a thousand ideas that I can’t wait to incorporate into my own art and design. For a creative professional it doesn’t get much better than the opportunity to visit such a unique place. Heck, I don’t even think you need to be in the area, I think it’s worth a special trip.
