I'm really sad to hear how much the Getty has cut back its educational
focus. Providing a quality experience in the museum just isn't enough. The
Getty can spend its money the way it wants to of course but what lost
opportunities. Most of us and most of our students will never be able to set
foot in that museum--and witness what happens when we do. But I do love the
rooms at the museum that give more backgroud on the art. And the computer
stuff would be good if we had time. Is that online somwhere?
Like Woody, I was luck y enough to take part in DBAE programs and also a
group giving ideas for some of the posters the Getty put out. Why is it the
Getty museum has no posters? no on-line lesson plans? It almost seems as if
they wan tto completely control their art. There's just these big expensive
art books. What I love about artsednet Web site is the lessons and art from
all over the world--but almos t nothing from the Getty museum. And the stuff
on the musem site is minimal.
