Torv, a Westport resident since 1997, was the executive director of First Night Westport/Weston for the past three years, and previously worked at the American Film Institute and American Cinematheque in Los Angeles.

We are delighted to welcome Denise as Executive Director,Ӕ said Joni Andrews, president of WHS.

Her enthusiasm, creative talents, broad museum experience and love of history are a natural fit with the goals and mission of the Westport Historical Society.Ӕ

Originally from New York City, Torv lived in Australia for several years where she graduated from the University of New South Wales, working as a journalist before switching to communications and community relations for non-profit arts organizations.

“I love art and history, and moving into that world enabled me to bring what I call the windows to our soulђ into the community, by drawing the community into our buildings,” said Torv.

In Australia, Torv was associated with the development of Sydneys most visited museums—The PowerHouse Museum, The Mint and Barracks Museum, and the Hyde Park Barracks, as well as the established Australian Museum.

Torv replaces John Lupton who held the post for a year before resigning effective Jan. 31.
