About: Melissa Liu

As an intern at the Getty Foundation for the summer, I help with projects related to current grantmaking areas, including the Multicultural Undergraduate Internship Program.

I'm thrilled to be a part of advancing the Getty’s philanthropic mission, and my love for artistic expression runs full circle, from visual to performing arts.

      In this image, the Israelites around Moses bend down to hurriedly collect manna, which the Bible says melted in the sunlight.
