Day Without Art
December 1, 2009
Los Angeles, California
December 1, 2009, marks the J. Paul Getty Museum's twentieth annual observance of Day Without Art, a time when the international arts community pauses to remember and respond to the AIDS crisis and its impact on cultural life. To commemorate this day, Air by Aristide Maillol, located on the Arrival Plaza steps at the Getty Center, will be shrouded. The visual deprivation of this work symbolizes the creative loss caused by the epidemic. The Getty will make a donation to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation in recognition of Day Without Art.
The Museum will also offer special Day Without Art-related Spotlight Tours at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Exclusively for Foundation supporters, the Getty Museum is offering a complimentary parking voucher available now. Click here to download the voucher.
