12:15 p.m. Lunch begins at Getty Center's picnic area

This Getty tour will be led by USD’s Daniel López-Pérez, PhD. Daniel López-Pérez is an Assistant Professor of Architectural Design and a founding faculty member of the Architecture Program at the University of San Diego. López-Pérez received his Ph.D. in the History and Theory of Architecture at Princeton University, a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design (with Honors) from Columbia University, and an AA Diploma from the Architectural Association.

In addition to visiting the complex, and accompanied by Getty staff, the tour will feature an intimate and guided visit to the Getty’s Research Institute and its library, an instrumental partner and resource to a number of multi-year undergraduate research projects undertaken by University of San Diego students. As a regular researcher and extended reader at the Institute, Lopez-Perez will speak about some of these projects highlighting rare journals, photographs and manuscripts in the Institute’s collection that have been instrumental in shaping the research of the students in USD’s Department of Art, Architecture and Art History.

When the private tour concludes, we'll all gather for lunch, hear updates from USD, and have time to connect with one another. After lunch, you're welcome to stay at the Getty and tour other exhibits on your own.

There is no charge to attend this event. In lieu of an attendance fee, we ask that you consider making a nominal donation to support USD's College of Arts & Sciences or the Alumni Associations, so we can continue to offer great programs such as these (not mandatory).

We look forward to seeing you on May 16th for this special event.
