Getty 25 Celebrates 
San Gabriel Valley

In celebration of the Getty Center’s 25th Anniversary, J. Paul Getty Trust is partnering up with neighborhoods across Los Angeles to produce ten bespoke community-centric festivals that embrace the local community and showcase Getty-inspired programming. The objective of Getty25 is to celebrate the joy of art throughout Los Angeles by meeting people where they live and creating enduring community partnerships for years to come.


Join Getty and Day One for a festival celebrating "Our Common Thread" by acknowledging the sacred Tongva land that we live on, and the cultural experiences that bring us together as a community. Guests will explore local fusion foods, visual artists, live music, an eclectic marketplace for artisans, free hands-on art workshops facilitated by local SGV artists, and an immersive digital experience of Getty collections.
