I finally made it around to visiting The Getty Museum in Los Angeles. The view overlooking the city (and the ocean) was amazing but I’m sad to report that, overall, I was disappointed with the art. I think I’d heard too much about how amazing it was so my expectations were really high—it didn’t quite meet them. Perhaps it was the mood I was in, but I just wasn’t feelin’ the collection that day. That being said, there was an AMAZING exhibit of photographs by Herb Ritts.
(Side Note: His name makes me crave some sort of flavored Ritz cracker. Do they even make those?!…….. Confirmed! They do. Moving on…)
I could do a little write up on who Herb was and how awesome his work is/was but the LA Times already did that so you should just read that if you wanna know more. In the mean time… look at these!
Mmm hmm. For reals…
Now that we’re at the end of this post, I’m starting to feel bad for hatin’ on the Getty. It really is a nice museum. You can see Van Gogh’s and Picasso’s and and crazy French beds from the 1700′s. I think I had more fun at the Getty Villa though. Give them both a chance. And, if you’re in the area, the Herb Ritts show is up until August. Lucky you!
