Patrons Sponsor VIP Getty Tour for UCLA’s Italian Club members

Continuing their newly established collaboration with UCLA’s Italian Studies department, the Patrons hosted a VIP visit to the Getty Villa on Sunday, January 20. More than a dozen students, including several Casola Prize winners & Ph.D. candidates, experienced a special visit led by Antiquities Curator, Dr. Claire Lyons, Ph.D.

 

In addition to a familiarization of the Villa the students also experienced the newly opened "Underworld-Imagining the Afterlife" exhibition. Prior to starting the visit the students and Dr. Lyons enjoyed a café luncheon where Dr. Lyons updated the students on the Getty Villa history and her life’s work in the field of Archeology, says Paul Romano, Patron President.

 

The Patrons hope to continue sponsoring many University student visits to the Getty in the future.
