The.. Getty!

This Monday (July 13th), we Getty interns made a trip out to the LA Getty Center for the Getty Foundation’s M(ulticultural)U(ndergraduate)I(nternship) Arts Summit. Dang, that sounds fancy. It was basically a career day / meet-all-the-other-100+-Getty-interns-day. Janet Mota who works at the botannical garden was kind enough to drive. I’m so glad I had the chance […]

Digitize This

What’s with all the digitization?Everything from newspapers to slides in the slide library to magazines to museums collections are being digitized, and it’s pretty unsettling- specially for all of us old fogeys who love everything in print and on paper.

Sim, this one’s for you:This summer, and especially during the past couple of days, I’ve been thinking a […]
