Museums and art galleries have been closed formonths. Exhibitions, performances, and school programs have beencanceled. The long-term viability of many organizations is now atserious risk. The impact will be severe on the organizational staff, theartists who work with them, and the communities they serve.Within weeks of our city’s shutdown in March 2020, Getty launcheda 10 million LA Arts Recovery Fund to provide grants to small andmedium sized LA-based museums and other arts nonprofits.We invite you to join us in supporting the future ofthe arts in LA.LA Arts Recovery Fund2
