The Getty Leadership Institute, largely devoted to the professional development of museum executives, is moving from Los Angeles to Claremont Graduate University. Funded by a renewable three-year, $2.2-million grant and renamed the Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University, the collaborative venture will be run by the university's School of Arts and Humanities and Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management. The grant will fund the Museum Leadership Institute, a popular program of intensive three-week summer courses, and an additional, yet-to-be-determined project, said Deborah Marrow, director of the Getty Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the J. Paul Getty Trust.

The organizers of Pacific Standard Time signaled their intention to start spreading the word about their colossal visual arts collaboration set to start in October 2011 at a media event Thursday at the members-only Soho House on Sunset Boulevard. In attendance were dozens of local museum directors and publicists. In essence, Pacific Standard Time is a set of museum exhibitions that will each in their own way explore the birth of the L.A. art scene, to be staged by about 50 institutions next fall in Southern California.

USC President Steven B. Sample has resigned his relatively new seat on the board of the J. Paul Getty Trust, citing conflicting duties. In a three-sentence resignation letter dated Feb. 28, Sample said his responsibilities to USC "make it impossible for me to continue" as a Getty trustee. His resignation was effective immediately, and he declined to comment Tuesday. Sample joined the Getty board in September 2004. Trustees typically serve four-year terms.

Happy days were here again in 2012 for a number of folks in the executive offices of the J. Paul Getty Trust, although it wasn't the best of times for some others on the staff of about 1,250. A “senior management compensation” disclosure dated Jan. 31 and posted on the Getty's website shows that total compensation for the year rose by at least 8.6% for the seven executives and department heads for whom it's possible to make direct comparisons with 2011 earnings. The pay hikes came during a year when 34 employees were laid off from the Getty Museum, including more than a third of the museum's education department.
