Guide to the J. Paul Getty Museum Department of Education and Academic Affairs Records, 1973-2004 and undated (bulk 1987-2002)
Series II. Education and outreach, 1980-2003 and undated (bulk 1984-2001) 18.65 linear feet (20 boxes, 3 flatfiles)
Records consist of handouts, course materials, memoranda, correspondence, exhibit designs and related materials, visitor responses, educational game sets, photographic materials, reports, contracts, and forms relating to educational programs developed by the J. Paul Getty Museum Department of Education and Academic Affairs, dating 1980-2002 and undated (bulk 1984-1997).
The records are centered around five types of activities: adult courses, staff education and training, exhibitions and informative displays, school and youth programs, and scholarly programs. Both adult courses and staff education programs covered topics such as art techniques, stylistic periods, specific works and artists, and the history of the Museum itself. Exhibitions and displays offered Museum visitors insight into its art collection; materials relating to this topic include exhibit designs, background information about exhibitions, and compilations of visitor responses. School and youth programs were designed to help younger visitors engage with and understand art. Student tours and game sets both focused on the artwork in the Getty's collection, while the Multicultural Art Print Series (MAPS) was used to reach students in the classroom. Scholarly programs refers to both interns and visiting guest scholars; materials include orientation guides to introduce them to Los Angeles and the Museum, comparisons with other institutions' guest scholar programs, and records regarding the housing for the guest scholar program. Community outreach primarily concerns programs whose intent was to introduce various groups, such as teachers, students, families, and librarians, to the Getty Center and familiarize them with its offerings.

Series II.B. Staff education and training, 1982-1994, 2000-2002, undated 0.6 linear feet (3 boxes)
Records consist of handouts, course guides, memoranda, reports, and press releases used for staff education at the J. Paul Getty Museum, dating 1982-1997. Most of the compiled materials contain background information on certain artistic periods, topics, techniques, works and artists featured in the Museum's collection, while a few relate directly to the history and design of the Museum and the training of gallery teachers.
The handouts feature basic overviews of their topics and sometimes photocopies of background material from other sources and books. Course guides from adult courses were included for this purpose as well. Some files contain press releases regarding the Museum's acquisition of major works, and background on their provenance and history. The materials relating to the Museum itself primarily concern the Garden and the sculptures therein.

Materials have been kept in the order in which they were received, which begins with more general topics, followed by specific works and artists.

Series II.C. Exhibitions and informative displays, 1987-2003 (bulk 1995-2001) 9.85 linear feet (13 boxes, 3 flatfiles)
Records consist of exhibit scripts, plans, designs, notes, informational notebooks, visitor comment notebooks, receipts, forms, contracts, correspondence, memoranda, and reports relating to exhibitions and informative displays at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Villa and the Getty Center, dating 1987-2000 (bulk 1995-1997).
The Getty Villa exhibitions include the Orientation Theater, The Art of Collecting: The Earl and Countess of Arundel, Carrie M. Weems Reacts to Hidden Witness, Butterflies of the World, and a proposed archaeological dig simulation. The records relating to each of these exhibits varies: some have only visitor responses, while others contain planning materials. Materials relating to the Getty Center are divided into records on various exhibitions, records regarding Art Information Rooms, and exhibition press kits.
Arrangement note
Records are divided into two categories: exhibits and displays at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Villa, and exhibits and displays at the Getty Center. The files remain in the order in which they were received, with the materials from the 1995 exhibits added to the end of the Villa records. Getty Center materials are further divided into exhibition records dating to the early years of the Center, and records regarding the Art Information Rooms.
The records are organized into three subseries:

Series II.C.1. Getty Villa exhibitions, 1987-2002 (bulk 1995-2001);

Series II.C.2. Getty Center exhibitions, 1996-2003;

Series II.C.3. Accessibility, 2000-2001, undated.
Series II.C.1. Getty Villa exhibitions, 1987-2002 (bulk 1995-2001) 4.2 linear feet (6 boxes, 3 flatfiles)
Records consist of exhibit scripts, memoranda, correspondence, informational notebooks, visitor comment notebooks, reports, and architectural drawings relating to exhibitions at the Getty Villa, dating 1987-2002 (bulk 1995-2001).
The Orientation Theater, built in 1988, featured a slide show with accompanying audio to introduce visitors to the Museum and its collections. Materials relating to the Theater include copies of the script, contracts regarding its construction and maintenance, and architectural plans for the space.
The Art of Collecting: The Earl and Countess of Arundel, Carrie M. Weems Reacts to Hidden Witness, and Butterflies of the World were 1995 Museum exhibitions. Materials about the Arundel exhibition include the Facilitator Notebook, a publication and notebooks about the collection, and an assemblage of visitors' comments. Visitor responses were also collected for the Carrie M. Weems exhibition, and for Butterflies of the World there is a set of visitor sketchbooks in which visitors were invited to comment and/or draw.
A number of materials exist regarding the planning of a simulated archaeological dig at the Villa, a project that never came to fruition. Included are 20 architectural drawings ranging in size from 11" x 15" to 30" x 42," drawn up by Machado and Silvetti Associates, Inc., architect, and Langdon Wilson Architecture Planning, associate architect.

Series II.C.2. Getty Center exhibitions, 1996-2003 5.35 linear feet (7 boxes)
The records consist mainly of memoranda, correspondence, reports, notes, scripts, planning materials, and corresponding handouts relating to some of the exhibitions displayed at the Getty Center, dating 1996-2003. Many of the exhibition records come from Education Department liaisons for various exhibitions, with suggestions for ways to bring them to the awareness of broader audiences, including teachers and students. In the Art Information Rooms (AIRs) the visitor could receive additional information about the collections in the galleries and access the Getty's online art database. The Family Room was created as a space to provide interactive learning experiences to families with children ages 4-11. Records covering these exhibits feature display drawings, mockups, drafts of the scripts for VIEW (Visitor Interactive Educational Workstation), and various planning materials, including a 17" x 11" spiral-bound set of architectural and design plans. Additional plans, reports, and analyses follow the progress of the AIRs until their dissolution in 2003. Exhibition press kits consist of pamphlets, handouts, and other materials distributed to the media to introduce exhibitions.
Arrangement note
The records are organized into three sections: Exhibition records, Art Information Rooms (AIRs), and Exhibition press kits.

Series II.D.2. Game sets, undated, 2.6 linear feet (3 boxes)
Sets consist of plastic cases containing games created by the J. Paul Getty Museum to teach students and children about various elements of art production and interpretation; dates are unknown.
"Perplexing Paintings" consists of a plastic case containing three games designed to help the visitor understand different ways painters communicate through their pictures. Game 1, Catherine's Story, uses the painting St. Catherine of Alexandria: Scenes from Her Life by Donato and Gregorio d'Arezzo to teach "how some painters use a series of scenes ... to tell stories." Game 2, John's World, uses the painting Portrait of John Talbot, later 1st Earl Talbot by Pompeo Batoni to teach "how to discover and decipher the clues hidden in portraits" to learn about the subjects. Game 3, What's My Style?, has the visitor compare small postcards of paintings to Van Gogh's Irises and Rembrandt's An Old Man in Military Costume, to "practice recognizing different painters' styles and learn how artists use style to communicate feelings and ideas."
"Fascinating Furniture" consists of a plastic case containing three games designed to show the visitor ways that French furniture was made, decorated, and used. Game 1, Build a Chest of Drawers!, illustrates the steps involved in producing elaborate French furniture. Game 2, Beauty is Only Skin Deep, teaches about "some of the exotic materials that French craftsmen used to decorate elegant furniture" and the ways they "combined these exotic materials in order to give the same design a new look on different pieces of furniture." Game 3, The Hidden Drawer Mysteries, has the visitor search for hidden drawers and doors on certain pieces of furniture.
"Puzzling Pots" consists of a plastic case containing three games. Game 1, Who's Who on Greek Vases, uses game cards to teach clues for identifying some of the images found on Greek vases. Game 2, Mixing, Pouring, Storing, uses game cards and a decoder to help the visitor identify the uses of certain styles of vases and pots in Greek life. Game 3, Mending and Fixing, demonstrates ways the Greeks repaired damaged pottery. It includes game cards and copies of pottery fragments that the visitor uses to locate the matching artifact.
