Fashion Off the 405, Kids’ Edition

Our youngest visitors are also some of our most stylish

Our annual Garden Concerts for Kids brings thousands of little ones to the top of the Getty Center hill, releasing a renewed spirit across the campus and filling up the beautiful garden with outdoor festivities. Having an eye for fashion, I couldn’t help but notice what our youngest visitors were wearing. Undeniably, kids have the most fun with fashion!

This past weekend, the first in this year’s series, was a whirlwind of ruffles, stripes, and bold colors—and I’m not just talking about the beautiful flowers in bloom.

The fun and fashion continues at the Garden Concerts on August 9 & 10 and August 16 & 17. Be sure to drop by!

      Color for Healing

      This sanitorium (tuberculosis hospital) in Paimio, Finland, was designed by architect Alvar Aalto in the 1920s. Unlike many hospitals, it was full of bright colors—including welcoming yellow on the main stairs and calming green for ceilings above bedridden patients. Aalto even created special chairs to open the chest and speed healing.

      The building’s colors were mostly whitewashed later in the 20th century, but now—due to a grant from the Getty Foundation as part of its Keeping It Modern initiative—its colors are being reconstructed and the building preserved for the future.
