This is close to home, but what about a trip to the Getty Research Institute?   This year their theme is colour, and there are some very interesting scholars up there.   Here is a list of some whose work I find interesting -- in particular, Richard Tuttle, wow.  
They had their graduate consortium last term, but perhaps they could give us a tour or we could ask one of these scholars to meet with us and discuss their work?
