The Getty Center celebrates 20 Years with J. Paul Getty Trust Report 2017


The J. Paul Getty Trust published its latest annual report, “The Getty Center at Twenty.” The chairwoman of the board of trustees, Maria Hummer-Tuttle, writes in her statement:

This year’s annual J. Paul Getty Trust Report celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the Getty Center which opened to the public in December 1997. Sadly, this year we also mourn the loss of Harold Williams, whose vision gave birth to the Getty Center, and to whom this report is dedicated. … In the past year we have had several new beginnings. The Getty Patron Program was launched, offering individuals the opportunity to financially support Getty initiatives at various levels and thereby “join” the Getty. This program expands our connection to the community in an additional way and provides enhanced programming. … The first Getty Rothschild Fellowship was given this year to Dr. David Saunders, an expert in the area of conservation science. Awarded annually, this fellowship will nurture scholarship on subjects important to both the Getty and the Rothschild Foundation. … The Getty advanced its leadership in the field of digital technology with the appointment of Rich Fagan as the Getty’s first vice president and chief digital officer. More than 30,000 images of objects in the J. Paul Getty Museum collection were made available using the International Image Interoperability Framework, which allows researchers to bring together images from different institutional websites for comparison, manipulation, and annotation.
