Persian calligraphy has adorned architecture, left its visual impression in works of literature across time, and continues to be a revered and flourishing art form today.

On select Mondays, Getty Viilla visitors can explore the art of the written word through live demonstrations of Persian calligraphy with an expert artist.

Guests can meet the artists, ask questions, and have their name written in Persian calligraphy during this free, drop-in program for visitors of any age.

This activity complements the Getty Villa exhibition Persia: Ancient Iran and the Classical World.

Admission to the Getty Villa is free, and requires a timed-entry reservation.
