William Morrow has been named associate curator of contemporary art at the Denver Art Museum. He was the founding director of the 21c Museum in Louisville, Ky., and worked there from 2005 to 2011. He has master’s degrees from the School for World Art and Museum Studies at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, and the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. (Artforum tipped us off to the move.)

At DAM, Mr. Morrow will work with the museum’s team of curators on a 2013 exhibition devoted to artist Nick Cave. “Denver is an exciting community that values art and culture,” Mr. Morrow said in a statement. “I want to show our visitors the incredible art that is created in this state, while at the same time, showcasing a national and global perspective on contemporary art.”

The museum is currently showing Garry Winogrand’s “Women Are Beautiful” photographs, and will open an El Anatsui show on Sept. 9.
