Internship Experience: Getty Intern Arts Summit
(The Getty Iris) – On July 1st, 120 Multicultural Undergraduate Interns from across Los Angeles arrived at the Getty Center to participate in Arts Summit—a day-long event with career sessions, an inspirational speaker, and behind-the-scene tours of the museum. This internship program happens each summer at arts organizations across L.A. county, including the Getty.
Mark Bradford—the keynote speaker—set the tone for the day by giving a comedic, yet thought-provoking, speech revolving around individuality and personal philanthropy. In 1994, Bradford was an intern at Side Street Projects as part of the Getty Multicultural Undergraduate Program. Today, he is an internationally renowned artist best known for his large-scale, abstract paintings.
