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.

Deborah Marrow is an arts administrator who knows how to keep her balance and sense of clarity, people who know her say, and that makes her a good choice as interim president of the troubled J. Paul Getty Trust. Marrow, 57, was chosen to step in as Barry Munitz resigned this week after more than a year of turmoil, including allegations that the Getty acquired looted antiquities and an inquiry by the California attorney general's office into its financial practices.

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.

The USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Program, a pioneering series of fellowships for professional arts journalists, has come to an end. Director Sasha Anawalt, an associate professor and director of arts journalism programs at USC, confirmed the closure of the 12-year-old program. The fellowships have ended because the Getty Foundation is no longer funding the program, Anawalt said. The last series of fellowships concluded in November, she said. Deborah Marrow, director, Getty Foundation, said in a statement that the foundation is proud to have supported the program, but "we have focused our grants on special initiatives and we do not provide indefinite support for any initiative.
