College Nights are changing! Instead of a fall evening for students at the Villa and a spring evening event at the Center, we are switching to a College Night every spring, alternating sites. The next Getty College Night will be held at the Villa on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 from 6:00-9:30 pm, and take advantage of the exhibition Nubia: Jewels of Ancient Sudan.
