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.
