The Digital Art History team at the Getty Research Institute sponsors and advises collaborative art-historical research and publication projects that facilitate access to and analysis of digitized objects, particularly those in the Institute's collections. The team collaborates on these projects with colleagues from across the Getty and with experts in software development, user research, semantic engineering, and digital publications. Critical to these projects is the development of innovative working methods and technological tools that can be adopted by the broader art-historical and cultural heritage communities.

Ed Ruscha Streets of Los Angeles Project
The project makes available for the first time a groundbreaking collection of materials from one of the world's most recognized artists. The innovative digitization and exhibition of this archive will result in a publicly accessible resource for scholars of history, art, architecture, and urban studies, available in 2020.

Szeemann Digital Seminar
The seminar used digital technologies (Getty Scholars' Workspace v 1.1, the Digital Archive Navigation Application, and a customized image viewer from the IIIF community) to enable collaboration among three graduate seminars at UCLA, the University of Chicago, and the Academy of Fine Arts, Leipzig, all focused on the work of seminal curator Harald Szeemann, whose extraordinary archive is housed at the Research Institute.

Mutual Muses
A crowdsourcing project to transcribe six years of correspondence between realist painter Sylvia Sleigh and critic/curator Lawrence Alloway.

Digital Serlio
The Digital Serlio project establishes online access to Avery Classics' corpus of Sebastiano Serlio editions and his unpublished manuscript "On Domestic Architecture" (Tutte l'opere d'architettura, Libro VI, 1619). Research for this project is being conducted in Getty Scholars' Workspace v 1.1.

Resonating Spaces: Hans Scharoun's Berlin Philharmonie in 3-D
Using laser-scanning technology, this project examines Hans Scharoun's iconic Berlin Philharmonie (1960–1963) through 3-D renderings. The project's first phase, a collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute's Competence Center for Cultural Heritage Digitization, produced a physical model of the hall, which was featured in the exhibition Berlin/LA: Spaces for Music.
