About the Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship Program

Aiming to encourage greater diversity in the professions related to museums and the visual arts, the Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship program in Los Angeles supports substantive, full-time summer work opportunities for college undergraduates from cultural backgrounds that have traditionally been underrepresented in the arts. Since the program began in 1993, 161 local arts institutions, including the Getty, have hosted over 3,300 internships, exposing students to career possibilities in the arts. Originally titled the Multicultural Undergraduate Internship program, its name changed in late 2018 with announcement of the retirement of long-time Getty Foundation director Deborah Marrow, who began the program.


Being a volunteer at LAMAG is a great way to learn about contemporary art, meet people with similar interests, and share your knowledge with visitors. Volunteers are a vital and valued part of the LAMAG team.


LAMAG is committed to building a diverse team and welcomes people who would like to build relationships between the gallery and its audiences.


Volunteers work in the following area:


Gallery Facilitator

Facilitators are people-focused volunteers who engage with our visitors and improve their experience by providing appropriate information on the exhibitions on view in the Gallery. Facilitators also help to maintain the Gallery throughout the day, but their primary focus is on helping visitors.


The gallery recruits volunteers on a rolling basis throughout the year. Please note this is unpaid, volunteer-based opportunity.


If you are interested in this role, please send a 1 page introductory letter to lamag@lacity.org outlining your interests, skills and relevant experience.
