Join the PCC for a day trip to Los Angeles to view the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibitions at The Getty Museum and LACMA and tour a collection at a private home.

Robert Mapplethorpe (American, 1946-1989) is among the most influential visual artists of the late twentieth century. These exhibitions reexamine the arc of his photographic work from its humble beginnings in the early 1970s to the culture wars of the 1990s, and includes both his most iconic images and his lesser known photographs. It also explores the artist’s body of work through early drawings, collages, sculptures, and Polaroid photography; working materials from his archive; portraits, still lifes, and figure studies; rare color photographs; and seldom-seen video works.These two complementary  presentations are designed to highlight different aspects of the artist's complex oeuvre. These exhibitions are drawn from the landmark joint Getty/LACMA acquisition of the artist’s art.
