College Night 2015 features two special exhibitions organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum:

J. M. W. Turner: Painting Set Free, which brings together over sixty oil paintings and watercolors to focus on the creativity of Turner's final years. Inventive and influential, J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851) produced many of his most important and famous pictures after the age of sixty, in the last fifteen years of his life. Demonstrating radical technique and original subject matter, these works show Turner constantly challenging his contemporaries while remaining keenly aware of the market for his art.

Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography features the work of seven photographers who have turned their attention to exploring the essence of photography, distilling it to its basic components of light-sensitive emulsions and chemical development.

Also on view:
Zeitgeist: Art in the Germanic World 1800–1900 featuring the works of Caspar David Friedrich, Philipp Otto Runge, Gustav Klimt, and others.

Curators of these exhibitions will be available to answer your questions throughout the evening.

After your tour of the Museum, enjoy music and free food outdoors while taking in the spectacular views.

 
College Night also features:
