The Getty Project

Over the years the magnet has participated in exceptional activities. One such opportunity was the Getty Project with the artist in residence, Barbara Kruger, whose artwork can most notably be seen in the giant elevator at the Broad building located at the Los Angeles Museum of Art. Ms. Kruger and various artist mentors from the Getty visited the magnet and worked with students. (The Academy of Art and Technology on campus also participated along with two other high schools.) The goal was to create a temporary mural collage of artwork done by student groups. The Getty enlarged the projects and covered a major wall near the entrance building. Students, teachers and parents were invited to visit the Getty to see the mural and celebrate a successful outcome.
