Your questions refer to various areas of the Getty Trust -- the Getty Grant Program, ArtsEdNet, the Getty Museum's Education Department, and visiting the Getty Museum. It is difficult to provide you with specific information regarding these different areas. You may wish to contact the appropriate program for further information.

1. What is the status of the Getty Trusts funding of support for pilot art programs in different areas of the country?

This is now being handled by the Getty Grant Program. You can contact their Michigan office for more information at 616-857-1754.

2. Who heads up the portion of the Getty Trust devoted to arts education in the schools?

There is no specific Getty program devoted to art education in the schools. The Museum Education's purpose is to provide arts education through the use of the artworks at the Getty Museum. Their educational emphasis is on a quality museum experience here at the Getty. Their Teacher Resource Room is easily available for use by appointment.
