Take a break from the books and head up to the Getty Center for an evening of romantic frolic just for college students!

Complimentary soft drinks for designated drivers so no one has to overheat!

College Night at the Getty Center

Hot Talk with Dr. Drew and Dr. Melissa
Discuss art and sexuality with our special guests, Dr. Drew Pinsky and art historian Melissa Hyde, at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited, so come early to secure a spot.

Dr. Drew Pinsky—You've heard him on Loveline and seen him on Strictly Dr. Drew and Celebrity Rehab (go on, admit it). Now meet the ultracool Dr. Drew Pinsky (aka the original Dr. McDreamy), who never met a question too embarrassing to handle or a relationship too far gone to save. How many other doctors have appeared on the big screen with the Olsen twins, written the world's first academic study on celebrities and narcissism, or collected 44,929 friends on MySpace? Come prepared for this doctor's visit with your deepest and most daring questions about relationships, sex, and art.

Melissa Hyde—Praised on "cool as hell" and willing to "address even the most asinine of questions" (and you know you got 'em), this art historian from the University of Florida is an expert on gender and visual culture in 18th-century France. Translation: she knows all about decadent empires full of celebrity worship, gender-bending, and romantic intrigue. (Hmm, sounds a lot like L.A. in 2008...) Check out Consuming Passion: Fragonard's Allegories of Love and then find out from Dr. Melissa what all that bodice-ripping is really about.
