UW Art Museum Hires Museum Registrar
Sarah Gadd is the new registrar at the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
Gadd succeeds Eun-Kyung "E.K." Kim, who retired after 27 years of service to the university and its art museum.
"E.K.'s service to the University of Wyoming and the art museum over the years has been one of dedication to managing the safe-keeping of the collection," said Susan Moldenhauer, the museum's director and chief curator. "She implemented the ever-changing standards of museum collections care and management with an astute attention to detail and organization."
Gadd began her new position in early February.
"I have always loved working with the collection and I am excited to further open the collection and make it more accessible to the UW faculty, students and researchers," Gadd said.
One way Gadd plans to increase accessibility to the art collection is by incorporating collection information into the UW Libraries and the American Heritage Center Web-based search engine.
Gadd spent eight years as the art museum's assistant curator. Before that she was a curatorial assistant at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody. She is a board member of the Colorado - Wyoming Association of Museums and has a background in art history, history, anthropology and museum studies.
"Imagine learning from the masters" is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum's programs. The museum is located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie. The museum is open Mondays from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.
