The grant making arm of the J. Paul Getty Trust, the Getty Foundation, supports individuals and institutions committed to advancing the understanding and preservation of the visual arts locally and throughout the world. The majority of its funding is through initiatives that target a particular issue or region, and that are carried out in collaboration with the other Getty programs–the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute, and the Getty Conservation Institute. The foundation focuses on the following four broad areas:Access to Museum and Archival Collections, Art History as a Global Discipline, Advancing Conservation Practice, and Leadership and Professional Development.
Special Collections are curated collections of research that address a specific topic or research question.
Knowledge Centers are a custom service of IssueLab providing organizations with a simple way to manage and share knowledge on their own websites.
