The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in New York has appointed Julián Zugazagoitia as its new board chair. Alongside that announcement came news that the foundation has also added three to its board: Naomi Beckwith, senior curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Cary J. Davis, senior partner of private equity firm Warburg Pincus; and photographer and art historian Deborah Willis.
Zugazagoitia has been the director and CEO of Kansas City’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art since 2010. He has been on the board of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the past seven years.
Joel Wachs, president of the foundation, said in a release, “Since he joined the board seven years ago, Julián has made a significant impact and we are looking forward to his leadership as chair. At the same time, we are honored to welcome Naomi, Cary, and Deborah; their perspectives will be vital as we seek to support artist-centered institutions in the field.”
