Mission Statement The Getty is an international cultural and philanthropic organization serving both general audiences and specialized professionals. It is a tax-benefited institution, educational in purpose and character, that focuses on the visual arts in all of their dimensions and their capacity to strengthen and to inspire aesthetic and humanistic values. The Getty makes a difference by weaving together the presentation, enjoyment, study, and conservation of the visual arts in order to increase the public’s knowledge and sensitivity, expand its awareness and creativity, and sharpen its understanding and caring—all with the conviction that cultural enlightenment and community involvement in the arts can help lead to a more civil society.
