Lifting the Veil: Galactic Bulge Globular Clusters with VVV, HST and More

The Galactic globular clusters (GGCs) located towards the Galactic bulge have generally been excluded from large scale optical surveys due to severe total and differential extinction.  We present results from wide-field near-infrared PSF photometry of GGCs located towards the bulge, which are leveraged together with supplemental ground- and space-based observations.  We illustrate several applications of these data, including a detailed comparison with several sets of evolutionary models as well as number density profiles extending over the entire radial extent of all target clusters.  Lastly, we also present some examples of detailed ongoing investigations of bulge GGCs.
