The Getty name is a powerful one in the art world, conjuring up images of the wealthy J. Paul Getty Museum and its extensive holdings of rare antiquities and stately paintings. But now another Getty, J. Paul's granddaughter, Aileen, has entered the art scene, bringing with her images that attack the heart of her family's Establishment world.

An online sweepstakes offering a chance to touch the Hollywood sign would have flown the winner to Los Angeles free from anywhere in the country. Instead, Gillian Singletary drove over from Los Feliz on Thursday for the chance to scramble in jeans and sneakers down a very steep, sandy, slide-prone hillside and claim the prize offered by LA Inc., the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau. That a resident won instead of a visitor couldn't have been more fitting really, given that the reason for holding the contest was to celebrate a major gift to the people of L.A. Before a campaign led by Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge and the nonprofit Trust for Public Land brought in $12.5 million in donations large and small to buy nearby Cahuenga Peak, the private developer that owned the 138-acre property got it zoned for four luxury homes.

When Playboy founder Hugh Hefner heard that the campaign to buy the open space west of the Hollywood sign was short about $1 million, he knew he had to step in once again to protect the famous Los Angeles landmark. "Turned out the kid was back in the water again," he said in a telephone interview. So he anted up $900,000, which helped the campaign cross the finish line. On Monday, the Trust for Public Land announced that, thanks to Hefner's gift and an additional $500,000 from the Tiffany & Co. Foundation and Aileen Getty, it finally had the $12.5 million needed to buy Cahuenga Peak from Fox River Financial Resources Inc. The 138-acre property, which offers a spectacular 360-degree panorama of the Los Angeles Basin and the San Fernando Valley, now will become part of Griffith Park.

He came to their rescue when they were between a rock and a hard place. So it's fitting that Hugh Hefner will be honored with a boulder for helping the Trust for Public Land acquire Cahuenga Peak, the mountaintop next to the Hollywood sign. Leaders of the trust said Tuesday they plan to place plaques on large boulders to thank the Playboy magazine founder and two others who stepped up at the last moment to donate $1 million each to acquire the peak from its Chicago-based owners.

Greater Vision For 14 years, l.a. Eyeworks' signature black-and-white ads have featured bespectacled celebrity pals of owners Barbara McReynolds and Gai Gherardi. But behind that image is a history of activism--such as their latest collaboration with Aileen Getty, an artist living with AIDS. She stars in the current campaign seen in magazines and on bus shelters throughout Orange County.

What we wear, and don't wear, gives insight into who we are--what we think, how we feel, what we believe. Then again, sometimes what we wear is decided for us. A model enraptures a Barneys New York audience as her Vera Wang gown flows elegantly behind. At left, four people bare their souls (and more) in Tony Kaye's living art installation "Don't Be Scared," aimed at breaking AIDS taboos. Posing are Glenn Gaylord, left, Gretchin Adams, David Herndon-White and Aileen Getty.
