College Night at the Getty Villa
Come to the Getty Villa for an evening of art, music, food, and fun just for college students! Take a step back in to time and explore the Museum's collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, as well as the special exhibition The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection. See how artists' obsession with the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius and the destruction of Pompeii have inspired painting, sculpture, performance—even a scene from an episode of The Simpsons—and how this modern art influences the way we view this ancient disaster.

This after-hours event features:

• Special tours and presentations

• Free food, drinks, and cash bar

• Music by DJ AUDIOMOE

• Reenactors from Legio VI Victrix demonstrating ancient dress and armor in "Roman Runway"

• GettyGuide™ multimedia players to explore galleries on your own

• Caricature artists, door prizes, 20% discount at the Getty Store, and other surprises!
A ticket is required and space is limited. Get yours early, they will go quickly!
