Following our quite intense mornings, we were taken as a group to the Getty Villa. What an extraordinary site. Spent the afternoon looking at Greek and Roman antiquities (and doing what museum workers do when visiting other institutions: looking at display and lighting techniques, flow of traffic, labelling in galleries, the type and look of handouts and brochures, the quality of gift shops...) Following the visit, had a refreshing iced coffee on the terrace and engaged in a discussion with a colleague. As i've mentionned earlier in this missive, these discussions are as important as "all the rest of the stuff" we are doing here. (i asked mijin the other day whether we could extend our stay for three months. but it appears they have other plans for the use of the space!!)
Off for coffee. Today is our first day off since we started. I might go downtown to see some more art. Will report later.
