Getty Museum Names Keishia Gu Head of Education

The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles announced that Keishia Gu has been appointed head of education. She will oversee educational initiatives, from the kindergarten through university levels, at both the Getty Center and the Getty Villa. Gu brings twenty years of experience as an educator to the role and will join the institution in early September.

“We are delighted to welcome Keishia to the Getty Museum,” says Lisa Clements, assistant director of education, public programs, and interpretive content. “Keishia excels at connecting high-level strategic planning, processes, and partnerships to very individual educational outcomes of access, inquiry, and growth. Her thoughtful approach is a good match for the quality and character of our educational programs, which span kindergarten through university institutional initiatives, teen programs, and on-site education for school groups and visitors.” 

Most recently, Gu served as the director of admissions and enrollment at the Geffen Academy at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she was responsible for recruiting future students and developing and executing outreach strategies. “For fifteen years, I have called Los Angeles my home. I could not be more delighted to be joining the Getty Museum,” said Gu.
