Brief description of the foundation and the digital projects they fund:

The Getty Foundation fulfills the philanthropic mission of the Getty Trust by supporting individuals and institutions committed to advancing the greater understanding and preservation of the visual arts in Los Angeles and throughout the world. Since 2013, the Getty Foundation’s Digital Art History initiative has supported both introductory and advanced training in the technical and conceptual aspects of digital practice for art historians, academics, and museum professionals. In addition, we have provided direct support for a small number of DAH projects since 2018, with a focus on spatial analysis (historical GIS, digital mapping, and 3D modeling of built cultural heritage) and image analysis (machine vision, pattern recognition, and visual search). Prior to launching the DAH initiative, the Foundation organized the Online Scholarly Cataloguing Initiative (OSCI), which from 2009 to 2015 supported nine museums piloting the transition of the scholarly museum collection catalogue to online platforms. The Foundation is not currently accepting new proposals in the Digital Art History initiative, as we are in the early stages of a strategic analysis of the initiative’s goals. We invite conversations with colleagues that can help us assess the state of the field, particularly in light of the digital turn experienced across the museum sector as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, so that we can understand better the current needs and future directions. We plan to relaunch the DAH initiative in spring 2022.
