About: Elie Glyn

I’m a junior designer at the J. Paul Getty Museum, working at both the Getty Center and Villa. In addition to Sicily: Art and Invention between Greece and Rome, recent exhibitions I've worked on include Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line, The Life of Art; and Lyonel Feininger: Photographs, 1928–1939. My job is to help create the look and feel of an exhibition experience, to present artwork in its best light along with interpretive graphics, and to design a promotional campaign that entices potential visitors. I’ve been working for the Getty for three years, and have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design.
