Here is a list of What's New.

Looking at Art of Ancient Greece and Rome
This Web exhibition brings to you sculptures from the antiquities
collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum. Featuring information and
activities for each artwork, an image gallery with multiple and
rotating views of each object, an index of gods and goddesses, a
glossary, and list of Web resources. This program is a lively
introduction to understanding and appreciating ancient Greek and Roman

Worlds of Art
Check out Worlds of Art, brought to you by LA Culture Net and
ArtsEdNet. Worlds of Art offers lesson plans, resources, and
professional development opportunities, with art and culture as the
underlying themes. Drawing from cultural organizations and
institutions in the LA community, this program is a model for
exploring arts and cultures in any community. Look for more units on
other artworlds in the future on ArtsEdNet.

Viewpoints - Exploring How You Understand Art
People look at and understand art in many different ways. Ever wonder
how you decide what you like and why? Viewpoints is an interactive
self-test that instantly lets you explore your understanding of art.
As a complement to Worlds of Art, this feature will allow you to
further understand different ways of looking at art, starting with
your own.

1998 Summer Professional Development Programs
This summer catch up on the developments in comprehensive arts
education. These programs are sponsored by the Getty Education
Institute's Regional Professional Development Consortia and take place
across the country.

Order Online Through the Getty Trust Publications Web Site
Ordering Education Institute titles has just been made easier. On the
Getty Trust Publications Web site, you may order online books,
videotapes, and instructional resources published by the Education
Institute, as well as materials from other Getty programs.

Getty Center Walking Tour
Beat the crowds -- take an online walking tour of the new Getty
Center. As part of our online exhibition Making Architecture: The
Getty Center from Concept through Construction, we are excited to
showcase many of the different corners and areas of the Getty Center.
This tour allows you to "stroll" through travertine-clad buildings and
plazas at your own pace. An added bonus is a behind-the-scenes peek at
sections closed to the visiting public.
