Welcome to the Getty Foundation's website. This year marks an important milestone for the Foundation as we will celebrate our 30-year anniversary in October. We'll be sharing our reflections on our work throughout the year. Meanwhile, here are a few updates on our current and forthcoming grant initiatives.

The grant making phase of two major initiatives, the Panel Paintings Initiative and Online Scholarly Cataloguing Initiative, is coming to a close in 2014, although grant supported projects will continue for several more years. We are launching two new initiatives this year: Digital Art History and Keeping it Modern. The former will support the training of art historians to take full advantage of digital technologies as well as model research and publication projects. The latter will provide grants for the conservation of significant examples of 20th century architecture leading to the development of best practices.

Following last year's Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A., we are now gearing up for the next major installment in the series, Pacific Standard Time: L.A./L.A. Grants for this initiative will fund a series of exhibitions and programs about Latin American and Latino art, building on the close connections (past and present) between Los Angeles and many countries in Latin America. Pacific Standard Time: L.A./L.A. will open in the fall of 2017.

The Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University, which is supported by a multi-year Foundation grant, suspended programming in 2013 in order to survey the art museum field and reevaluate its courses. It is relaunching programs in 2014.

I invite you to browse our website to learn more about our grants, sign up for our quarterly e-newsletter, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
