When going to the Getty Center it is easy to get carried away wandering through the galleries marveling at the impressive collection of art. However, be sure not to forget the Getty Center’s living work of art, Robert Irwin’s Central Garden. Located with a panoramic view of Los Angeles, the Central Garden is home to over 500 different plants including Bougainvilleas, Lavender, Tea Roses and Kangaroo Paw, not to mention the floating Azaleas in the heart of the garden. Written on the ground is the phrase “Always changing, never twice the same.” With each season comes a different garden fresh with brilliant colors, smells and views.
