Getty Grant Program

I have just been reading an interview with Deborah Marrow, the long-standing and immensely effective Director of the Getty Grant Program who is standing down after 35 years in post. I’m pretty sure they helped fund the new roof at St. Anne’s, Limehouse in the mid-1980s and have certainly been responsible for big building, conservation and publication grants ever since. I was a beneficiary of a small conference they organised in J.P. Getty’s villa north of Rome in 2000, which I don’t think they regarded as one of their big successes, but I look back on it as having been one of the best and most stimulating of such events. Since then, their big investment has been in Pacific Standard Time, creating a comprehensive exhibition programme about post-war art and design in West Coast museums. It’s an impressive track record, not to mention her two terms as interim President.
