The Getty Museum presents Women Twirling: Jo Ann Callis, Gay Block and Catherine Opie in Coversation tonight at 7 pm. The three photographers talk about “art, life, and domesticity on the occasion of the exhibition Jo Ann Callis: Woman Twirling,” which is on view through August 9 at the Getty Center. In the exhibit, salt shakers, gloves, and doughnuts become sensual and ominous. Women twirl, do handstands, emerge from water. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Call (310) 440-7300 or visit to make reservations.
