Getty 25 Celebrates Watts

Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28 from 11am-6pm


This is the last festival of ten free, outdoor community art festivals across Los Angeles this summer in celebration of the Getty Center’s 25th anniversary. Join the Watts Labor Community Action Committee (WLCAC) to celebrate Watts at WLCAC’s historic urban arts healing center. Interact with artists, performers, artisans, and chefs, enjoy traditional foods, and discover Watts Towers–inspired mosaics and assemblage art. Revel in the sounds of Afro-Cuban rhythms, hip-hop, salsa, drum circles, spoken word/poetry, jazz, reggaeton, and soul. Enjoy hands-on art workshops, live music and performances, an immersive digital experience of Getty collections, photo booths,  and giveaways.

 

Off the 405: Standing on the Corner

Saturday, August 27 from 6-9pm

The Getty Center

This is this summer’s last Off the 405 concert at the Getty Center. Standing on the Corner often calls itself an “art ensemble,” a moniker which helps outline its approach to music and performance, while hinting at its creative roots and perspective. With composer, conductor and co-founder Gio Escobar at the center of a band line-up that’s seldom the same for consecutive performances, each of which might feature a radically different concept and repertoire, SOTC moves freely yet decisively between jazz improvisations, dub excursions, garage-noise freak-outs, and lo-fi hip-hop collage.

 

Special Screening: The Thief Collector

Sunday, August 28 at 2pm

In 1985, Willem de Kooning’s Woman-Ochre, one of the most valuable paintings of the 20th century, vanished after being cut from its frame at the University of Arizona Museum of Art. Over 30 years later, the $160 million painting was found hanging in the home of Jerry and Rita Alter in rural New Mexico. The Thief Collector takes a deep look at how, and why, this mild-mannered couple pulled off one of the greatest art heists of a generation. After the screening the film's director, Allison Otto, joins Getty conservators for a conversation and audience Q&A. The program is followed by an outdoor hosted reception. This event complements the Getty exhibition Conserving de Kooning: Theft and Recovery closing on August 28.
