Due to construction and closures, the Getty Villa Day Trip on Wednesday February 28, 2018, has been replaced by the Norton Simon Museum
Norton Simon Museum
The Norton Simon Museum is known around the world as one of the most remarkable private art collections ever assembled. Over a thirty-year period industrialist Norton Simon (1907–1993) amassed an astonishing collection of European art from the Renaissance to the 20th century and a stellar collection of South and Southeast Asian art spanning 2,000 years. Approximately 1,000 works from the permanent collection of 12,000 objects are on view in the Norton Simon Museum’s galleries and sculpture garden throughout the year. There are two temporary exhibition spaces within the Museum; the curatorial department mounts three to five exhibitions centered on the collection, and one special masterpiece loan, per year.
Current Special Exhibitions include:
Taking Shape: Degas as Sculptor
Rembrandt’s “Self Portrait at the Age of 34” on loan from The National Gallery, London
Rembrandt: Prints “of a Particular Spirit”
