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.

I looked at my companions, asking them “Was that it? Did we miss it?” That was it, but we hadn’t missed it at all.
