Perhaps There's a Job Driving the Tram?
Calling all college grads! There's finally something you can do with that expensive piece of paper you earned at that fancy-ass university your parents forced you to attend (no, not that). It's College Night at the Getty, and all diploma-holders will be admitted gratis. Since you probably didn't get the job of your dreams after graduation or any job at all the cultural elite is taking pity. Eat, hear live music and feast your eyes on "Paris: Life and Luxury," an exhibit of 18th-century fine art in the City of Light, while curator Charissa Bremer-David shares her knowledge on fashion, letter writing, food and music of the period. You'll also be able to see the museum's permanent collections, "Spirit of An Age: Drawings From the Germanic World, 1770-1900," as well as "Brush and Shutter: Early Photography in China." Before you leave, console yourself by viewing [Re]Vision, a series of projects created by UCLA Department of Design and Media Arts students. They probably don't have jobs either.
