The Getty Garden Party
The J. Paul Getty Museum will be hosting a Garden Party on November 14th from 6-8pm celebrating and focusing on the relationship between food, & the power it has to bring people together, be it a stranger, or your next door neighbor.
The Getty will be utilizing the greens grown through the recent culinary-inspired exhibits, “The Edible Monument: The Art of Food for Festivals,” and “Eat, Drink, and Be Merry: Food in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.”
A pop-up “exhibit” of heirloom vegetables has been growing near the Central Garden, full of lettuces, peppers, herbs, edible flowers, and other fruits and vegetables easily grown in a setting as simple as a bare rooftop. How did it get there? An idea was planted. Then a seed was planted…and grew…and another grew…and another…
Julia Sherman’s blog is an amazing resource for recipes, interviews, photos, and other interesting ways to incorporate healthy food, and conversation into your daily life. David Godshall, owner and creator of Terremoto, a landscape architect is responsible for the layout of this unconventional and brilliant geometric design.
Farmscape Gardens, led by Dan Allen, a member of the LA Food Policy Council’s Working Group on Urban Agriculture, is California’s largest group of urban gardeners will also be on hand to answer questions, and raise awareness of just how simple it can be to grow your own food, and then eat it. What a thought! Julia will be there to meet and answer questions about how you too can start your way to something so simple and gratifying as growing your own food.
A DJ set by Anne Litt of KCRW will be spinning whilst you enjoy the views of Southern California from the top of the hill on your picnic blanket. A cash bar will have salad-inspired cocktails, created by New York based cocktail designer, Arley Marks.
Tours of the exhibit and greens growing in the Getty Salad Garden will be going throughout the event. After 4pm parking is $10, event begins at 6pm.
