Due to major construction on the 405 Freeway, access to the conference location at the Getty Center can be challenging and unpredictable. The Getty Center has graciously agreed to provide shuttle transportation for conference attendees from the Palomar Hotel, which is within walking distance of Hilgard House. Limited public transportation is available but is subject to change and delay by the freeway closures. Westwood, which is home to the University of California, Los Angeles, has many restaurants and cafes within walking distance of the hotels, providing alternatives that are less expensive than hotel dining. Conference rate rooms are available at: Hotel Palomar <URL:http://www.hotelpalomar-lawestwood.com> ($179/night + tax) Hilgard House <URL:http://www.hilgardhouse.com> ($154/single or $159/double + tax) Shuttle busses will transport attendees from these hotels to the Getty Center and to the tour locations. Guests who choose to stay at alternate locations will be responsible for securing their own transportation to the Getty Center (parking fee is $15/day) and for picking up the tour bus at the hotel on tour days. To access the conference rate, please mention the USC/The Artifact, its Context and Their Narrative *** Conservation DistList Instance 26:21 Distributed: Saturday, October 13, 2012 Message Id: cdl-26-21-018 ***Received on Wednesday, 10 October, 2012
