It isn’t really summer yet, but you wouldn’t know it from the hot weather we had the past couple of days. Here’s a little taste of what’s to come at the Getty Museum over the next few months. The garden at the Getty — designed by Robert Irwin and maintained by an army of skilled gardeners and horticulturalists — is one of my favorite in L.A. to visit because it is always in flux, never boring. With the museum and other Getty Center buildings forming a stark backdrop to the slightly wild quality of the garden, it is also a great place to sketch.
When the summer temps are near my boiling point on the east side of town where I live, it’s like a vacation to spend a day at the Getty and soak up the cool ocean breezes in the garden.
