Holiday Lights at the Getty Center through January 4

Illuminate your holidays with art every Saturday till 9

Winter is upon us. Spend a Saturday evening at the Getty Center, when we’re open until 9pm—and enjoy a chance to stroll the Central Garden at magic hour, photograph sunset, Instagram the lights in the trees, and share videos of your friends masquerading as snowflakes all in one evening. Hunt for the special holiday lights all around campus (starting at 5:30), and stop by the Museum Entrance Hall for free hot cider.

There’s light inside the galleries this season too, with the radiant glow of stained glass in Canterbury and St. Albans (through February 2) and the sophisticated play of light in Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door (through January 5).

Share your #GettyLights photos with us @TheGetty on Instagram and Twitter. We’d love to see you all lit up!

      I do not like crooked, twisted, blasted trees. I admire them much more if they are tall, straight, and flourishing. I do not like ruined, tattered cottages. I am not fond of nettles or thistles, or heath blossoms. I have more pleasure in a snug farm-house than a watch-tower—and a troop of tidy, happy villages please me better than the finest banditti in the world.”

      Marianne looked with amazement at Edward, with compassion at her sister. Elinor only laughed.
