Description
The records date from 1995 to 1998 and primarily comprise audiovisual and production materials generated by the Getty film project Art Works: Behind the Scenes at the Getty (1997). Materials comprise film reels, tapes, contracts, daily logs, storyboards, and other printed and electronic documentation on the project. Art Works is a 28-minute promotional film created to highlight the activities of the five programs of the Trust that were active during the time leading up to the opening of the Getty Center in 1997: the Getty Conservation Institute, Getty Grant Program, Getty Information Institute, Getty Education Institute, and Getty Museum. The film briefly spotlights the newly-opened Getty Center facility and highlights cultural heritage sites such as the Magao Grottoes, the Baltit Fort, and the Bonampak murals.
Background
The J. Paul Getty Trust is a not-for-profit institution, educational in purpose and character, that focuses on the visual arts in all of their dimensions. As of 2013 the Trust supports and oversees four programs: the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Foundation, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the Getty Research Institute. The J. Paul Getty Trust and Getty programs serve a varied audience from two locations: the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Getty Villa near Malibu, California.
