The Getty's gardens to close for three months

getty-garden-trees-fall.jpgThe Getty Center’s Central Garden will be closed to visitors from today through May 27. Improvements including new railings and planter borders are being made. The sculpture garden and all the lawn areas are included in the closure, in case that affects your plans to visit.

Also on the Getty beat: East Coast arts blogger Lee Rosenbaum says the Getty has offered its vacant museum director job to Timothy Potts, director of the Fitzwilliam Museum at the University of Cambridge. Ron Hartwig, the Getty's vice president for communications, wouldn't confirm or deny, Rosenbaum says at CultureGrrl.

Elsewhere on the arts beat: Tyler Green posts that "perhaps the least publicized element of Pacific Standard Time is the scholarship and catalogues published in conjunction with many of the PST exhibitions."
