Inside the Getty (J. Paul Getty Trust) by Hackman, William

For ten years now, the Getty Center has been an admired architectural masterpiece and has become an integral part of the Los Angeles experience. Published on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of its opening, this fascinating guide offers up not only the Getty Centers public spaces but also its private ones. The book takes readers on an expedition that few, if any, cultural institutions have offered: to the seemingly endless corridors that run underneath the visible structure; to the Museum storerooms, where works of art await their turn in the galleries; to the studios, where art is photographed for study and reproduction; to the stacks of precious prints, drawings, books, and objects that form the Research Institutes famed collections; and to the laboratories, where scientists employed by or invited to the Conservation Institute experiment with the tools and chemicals that will keep artifacts and sites safe for future generations. A must-have for past, present, and future visitors, the Guide to the Getty Center will educate and delight anyone interested in how great sites function and great cultural institutions pursue their work.
