The Environmental Graphic Design class I teach took a tour of the Getty Center in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. Our behind the scene tour was hosted by Clyde Crossan, a former student of mine who is working as an exhibit designer at the Getty. Clyde was able to inspire the students and show them the interworkings that go on to get a show up and ready for the public. He showcased the two recent photography exhibits that he worked on A Record of Emotion: The Photographs of Frederick H. Evans and Urban Panoramas: Opie, Liao, Kim both which run until June 6, 2010. My thanks go out to Clyde Crossan and the staff at the Getty for giving us this chance to look around and learn.
The Getty Center has a wonderful collection of art and photography and should not be missed if you are in the area. The photography shows that are running showcase some beautiful work. The Getty Center is first class in all its exhibits and works that are on display. This campus of art designed by Richard Meier on top of a hill over looking Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean always makes a day special and exciting.
