Fashion Off the 405, Weekender Edition

We look good on the weekends—thanks to you, our stylish visitors

Weekends at the Getty are all about family, friends, and fun. Some travel from afar, checking the Getty Center off their “Things to Do in LA” lists, and locals drop by for a weekend staycation.

This past weekend, at the last Garden Concert of our summer series for kids, the sun was shining brightly and the Central Gardens seemed especially vibrant. The landscape was absolutely picturesque, as were our weekend visitors.

These weekenders were dressed head-to-toe in happiness, accessorized with smiles and laughs. Check out some of my favorite moments and looks that embody that feeling of weekend wanderlust.

      Olympian Census #3: Poseidon

      Get the stats on your favorite (and not-so-favorite) gods and goddesses on view at the Getty Center.

      Roman name: Neptune

      Employment: God of the Sea

      Place of residence: A fancy palace somewhere in the Aegean Sea

      Parents: Cronus and Rhea

      Marital status: Married to Amphitrite, a sea goddess, but had many affairs just like his brother Zeus

      Offspring: Had many children including Triton, Theseus, Orion, Polyphemos and Arion

      Symbol: Trident, horse, and dolphin

      Special talent: Starting earthquakes & Shapeshifting into a horse to pursue women

      Highlights reel:

      • When Goddess Demeter turned into a mare to escape Poseidon’s pursuit, Poseidon also turned into a horse and mated with her, creating a talking horse baby, Arion.
      • Athena became the patron goddess of Athens over Poseidon by giving the city an olive tree, which produced wood, oil, and food. Poseidon had given them a salt-water spring. Nice going, Poseidon.
      • Poseidon cursed Olysseus to wander the seas for 10 years after the Trojan War in revenge for Olysseus blinding his son, the cyclops Poplyphemos.

      Olympian Census is a 12-part series profiling gods in art at the Getty Center.
