A Devilish Artwork for Halloween

Here’s an artwork from our collection that makes me squeal…with terror! The multicolored demons attacking my pal Saint Anthony are hooves down the scariest creatures around.

The blue devil is a total gangster. He bullied his way onto our new audio tour Demons, Angels, & Monsters: The Supernatural in Art. My young friends Benjamin, Bryn, Devin, Kayla, Michael, Michelle, Riley, and William are the real stars of the tour, though, with their opinions on supernatural fashion, monstrous behavior, and spectacular superpowers.

Like my costume?

For this particularly devilish artwork, feast your ears on nine-year-old Bryn’s tips for spotting the demons that dwell amongst us…right after the intro from the threatening thug.

The audio tour is fun for angels and monsters of all ages. Plus, all audio tours at the Getty Center are free through February 5.

Happy Halloween!

      Your Voice Matters

      StoryCorps is recording 18 conversations at the Getty Center on March 26, 27, and 28 on the theme of play. This {awesome} oral history project provides people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. 

      If you’re in L.A. on these days and have a friend or family member who wants to do it too, you can apply to participate. It’s free, and your recording will go into the Library of Congress.

      Because we only have 18 time slots, not everyone can participate…but we want to hear from you if you do!
