March 10 @ 8:00 am - April 2 @ 5:00 pm
Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internships at LACE
Two Available Positions: Curatorial Internship & Marketing and Communications Internship
DEADLINE: April 1, 2021
Since 1993, the Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship program has provided substantive, full-time work opportunities to 3,200 undergraduates, exposing them to potential careers in the arts. Aiming to encourage greater diversity in the professions related to museums and the visual arts, the program funds internships at cultural organizations across Los Angeles, including at the Getty Center and the Getty Villa. The Foundation’s support enables organizations to host students in full-time, paid internships for ten weeks during the summer.
The internships are intended for outstanding students who are members of groups underrepresented in careers related to museums and the visual arts. Students gain experience in key areas such as curatorship, conservation, education, publications, and related programmatic activities. Candidates are sought from all areas of undergraduate study and are not required to have demonstrated a previous commitment to the visual arts.
-Be of a group underrepresented in museums and visual arts organizations, including, but not limited to, individuals of African American, Asian, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, or Pacific Islander descent;
-Be currently enrolled undergraduates (bachelor’s degree program, associate’s degree program, or a vocational or technical program below the baccalaureate level). Students must have completed at least one semester or two quarters of college by June 2022. (Students who are enrolled in a second BA or BS program are not eligible.)
-Reside or attend college in Los Angeles County
-Be a United States citizen or permanent resident (non-citizen authorized to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis; also known as a “green card” holder). Students with DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) status valid through the internship period are also eligible.

The Curatorial Intern will serve as the key liaison between the artist, collaborators, and LACE’s staff. By being involved in the projects from development to execution, the Intern will learn the conventions and protocols of producing seasonal programs, and will learn how to cultivate relationships with artists, curators, and critics working in contemporary art today. This internship is for a student who is interested in learning about the curatorial process and who wants to develop exhibition and event production skills for critically engaged, exploratory, and community-responsive artists.
