The Getty is moving away from supporting Arts Education. I not sure what
their new focus is going to be, but this decision is something of a joke in
some museum groups. It also causes a hardship, because we have been using
their research as justification for education programs at the museum.

Excuse me; I didn't think there *was* supposed to be any profit for them.
They are a Foundation for supporting the arts, are they not? It is their
job to use their funding to support the arts; this list is supposed to be
one of the ways they do that.

Well, now, there certainly is a point of some concern! Does anyone know any
more about this? These board members are committed/loyal to the Arts, are
they not? Will Getty discontinue the list if we talk about them?
