In September, the museum announced that 45-year-old Salvador Salort-Pons, who has served as director of the museum’s European Art Department since 2011, would become its director, president and CEO.

He says he wants people to get to know him better and he wants to get to know them better as well. He says he wants to see if there are “opportunities for further engagement.”

The DIA says Salort-Pons has played a key role in the museum’s strategic planning process.

Salort-Pons plans to talk about the DIA, his favorite artworks and his vision for the museum. He’ll take questions and seek feedback about the museum.
