Saturday’s visit to Pasadena’s Norton Simon Museum was arranged, sponsored, and directed by Mrs. Grant, who is a Museum Educator at the Norton Simon and previously served as an Overseer at the Huntington Library in San Marino. In past years Mrs. Grant has also led groups of students on tours of the Getty Center and the Getty Villa.

The tours, which focus on works of art that bear a connection to the works students read in the College’s classical curriculum, have become something of a College tradition. Mrs. Grant first began leading them in 2010 in order to supplement the College’s curriculum and because, as she put it, “We have access to some of the best museums in the world.”
