Event 3

The Getty Center has an amazing garden, my last visit just was not enough I had to go back to walk through the garden area. It starts up by the main entrance of the museum then goes all the way down in a zig zag formation, ending at a large circular fountain area with a design in the center that is made of rose bushes. This layout has a vanishing point, the circular fountain; the admirer is looking to get to the end to see the beautiful open garden area after walking through the zig zag walkway crossing bridges that are over a water stream, and the many succulents that surround it.

It is amazing that the use of so many different forms of life can form such a beautiful thing to look at. Flowers and plants are manipulated, rooted and planted in a new place, to create an area where people can sit, walk through and admire. The architecture of the whole central garden area made it very appealing as well. Each plant and bend in the walkway is carefully planned so that wherever a person is standing they have an amazing view. So in a way there were many vanishing points created so no matter where someone stands they can admire the central garden.
