As we await our reopening, we are keeping busy planning new exhibitions we hope you will love and caring for the flowers, cacti, and grapevines in our gardens (pictured above is senior gardener Miguel Ambriz at the Getty Center). In the meantime, you can still immerse yourself in art through our online exhibitions and talks. We look forward to welcoming you in person soon.

Panel Discussion

  Curator Mazie Harris with artists John W. Simmons, Jess T. Dugan, Ellie Zenhari, and curator Leslie Ureña


Photography and Activism

This past summer as protests spread across the nation, Getty Museum curator Mazie Harris presented the talk "Activism through Photography: How Photographers Capture Social Movements and Contribute to National Dialogues" with artists John W. Simmons, Jess T. Dugan, Ellie Zenhari, and National Portrait Gallery curator Leslie Ureña as part of Photo LA's online fair. The discussion centered around civil rights struggles and protests, transgender advocacy, the impact of environmental pollution, and the ways that photographers use the medium to break down barriers to social justice.

A Closer Look

  Inner Peristyle of the Getty Villa






Villa on Screen

In the early 1700s, well diggers near Naples, Italy stumbled upon a trove of ancient marble artifacts. Their accidental discovery led to centuries of excavations, uncovering the remains of Pompeii and Herculaneum buried beneath volcanic ash and mud. This new eight-minute film about the Getty Villa traces its ancient sources and remarkable artworks, and features artists working in the same media today.

Art Education

 

School Partnerships

Each year, the Getty Center and Villa host an average of 150,000 students who arrive on yellow school buses for a day of connecting with art. Now, Getty educators have partnered with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and other districts in Southern California to offer K–12 virtual classroom courses in visual art from the Getty collection, mindfulness, and museum studies.

In addition, several Getty videos on topics like art history, conservation, and museum careers, are featured on LAUSD's YouTube channel, "A World of Learning." Please share with the teachers in your life.
