Vocabulary management at the Getty

Interesting interview with Patricia Harpring, managing editor of the Getty Vocabulary Program, which is in charge of four widely-used arts-related terminologies. The interview presents a behind-the-scenes look at vocabulary and standards maintenance and development at a leading museum and research institution.

You’ll also find some beautiful photography of the Getty Center and its surroundings (which, on a personal note, has me longing for the Californian landscape – believe it or not, it’s been almost 13 years since I visited, and I remember being blown away by the view from the Getty and the nature surrounding it).
