We Examine Media and
Art at the Getty Center
 Getty Group 1.27.06  
The Getty Center is a much-awaited Mass Comm 101 field trip. MC101s are encouraged to roam all around this world-class facility to complete an assignment that ties together much of what has been taught in the course to this point.

Here are some of our early arrivals. We eventually drew 38 MC101s and guests.

Getting to the Getty is part of the fun. We start by going up the clean and quiet automated electric tram.

 Guys at Getty 1.27.06
It was a perfect afternoon to hang out with friends while doing an enjoyable but illuminating assignment. (At least, I think these guys are doing the assignment, um, maybe a little bit?)

Students studied how contemporary mass media is used to explain the museum's art works.
Sunset at Getty
We began to head for the exits between 4:30 and 5 p.m.. Some stayed later to see the sun set over the Pacific Ocean.

Back to the beginning of the day.
