Behind the Scenes, Getty Center

Fashion Off the 405

Fashion Off the 405 is a Flickr-based project that documents the many different visitor styles of the Getty—from the trendy to the casual to some wild street style.

As summer’s heat wave hits here in Los Angeles, we’re all looking for the best way to stay cool. Fortunately, here at the Getty Center, summer has never been cooler. The Getty Center is frequented by some of L.A.’s most stylish, and they are bringing many shades of cool to the museum scene. We were so impressed, we had to share.

Whether you’re trekking to the top of the hill for Friday Flights, looking to dance the night away at Saturdays Off the 405, or just coming to peruse the garden in full bloom, we want to capture your perfectly curated outfit.

Check out some of my favorite looks and be sure to drop by and say hello if you see me in the crowd, camera in hand.

      It’s been 125 years since Van Gogh’s death, today we celebrate his life’s work.


      5 Ways to See Van Gogh’s Irises

      Through observations, visitor conversations, and some sneaky eavesdropping, we’ve compiled the top 5 ways people enjoy this painting.

      1. In a Crowd
        One of the most obvious ways that people see the painting is in a crowd. The gallery is almost always filled, and you might have to wait before you can get up close. The anticipation builds as you start in the back row, and slowly move until you are close enough to see the brushstrokes of Van Gogh’s thick paint.

      2. Online
        David from Colorado said that this was his first visit, but he had already seen the painting online. In addition to being available through the Getty’s Open Content program, the painting is often seen on social media. Just search #irises on Instagram for a taste of the painting’s popularity. 

      3. Alone
        If you arrive right at 10 a.m. when the museum opens, the quiet gallery provides a perfect backdrop to really examine the painting. Solitude and seclusion gives the gallery a sense of intimacy. 

      4. Multiple Times
        Repeat visits can give rise to multiple interpretations. Is it a melancholy or joyous painting? Expressive or depressive? 

      5. Internationally
        Visitors from all across the world viewed this famous Van Gogh. In just one hour I heard multiple languages—French, Italian, Chinese, Korean, German, and more. Irises seems to rise above cultural boundaries—a Dutch painting inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e prints—to strike an emotional resonance amongst all viewers. 

      What is your favorite lens to view Van Gogh’s work through?
