President’s Report

j o h n r. e ag l e pr es i d ent, b oa r d o f t r u stees

I am very pleased to present a report of the Dallas Museum of Art’s broad range of activities and accomplishments during fiscal year 2009–2010.

Chairman Deedie Rose, trustee Caren Prothro, President John Eagle, trustee Margaret McDermott, and Director Bonnie Pitman at the twenty-five-year Arts District celebration

The past year has been one of enormous excitement, vision, and accomplishment for the Museum. Together with the Board of Trustees and staff, the Museum fulfilled its mission of serving the community and advancing program excellence in art and visitor engagement while maintaining a balanced budget. We celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Museum’s move downtown as pioneer and cornerstone of the Dallas Arts District. We added ninety-four works of art to our collections, including six stunning acquisitions donated by

the Eugene and Margaret McDermott Art Fund, Inc., one of which, Paul Signac’s Comblat-le-Château, the Meadow, is reproduced on the cover of this annual report. We welcomed over 480,000 onsite and 594,000 online visitors, and we presented twenty-one exhibitions and over 6,300 programs this year. We celebrated the inauguration of our newest neighbor, the AT&T Performing Arts Center, through several exhibitions and programs, including All the World’s a Stage: Celebrating Performance in the Visual Arts and Performance/Art. In addition to presenting such exciting and innovative exhibitions as Coastlines: Images of

Land and Sea, Mexico 200, and African Masks: The Art of Disguise, we published The Arts of Africa at the Dallas Museum of Art, the first major catalogue to showcase the DMA’s African art collection, produced in honor of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the collection by Eugene and Margaret McDermott, and Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement, a comprehensive scholarly catalogue accompanying the DMA exhibition of the same name, which opened at the Newark Museum in September 2010. We expanded our early learning and access initiatives through our First Tuesday programming (free for all), new community partnerships such as SLANT 45, and a new focus on access for visitors with special needs, including Family Celebrations just for children with autism and their families. We continued to enhance visitor engagement in the galleries and exhibitions through Late Nights, which saw attendance this year remain at record levels; the use of new technologies such as smARTphone tours and social media, including Facebook and Twitter; and the recently reinstalled Center for Creative Connections (C3), whose innovative strategies for visitor engagement and interaction serve as a model for museums around the country. In addition, we made numerous other improvements and renovations to the Museum’s physical space. We completed a seven-year visitor engagement research initiative with Randi Korn & Associates, Inc., composed of six in-depth visitor studies, and presented our findings in the widely acclaimed publication Ignite the Power of Art: Advancing Visitor Engagement in Museums. Written by Bonnie Pitman and Ellen Hirzy, Ignite the Power of Art unveils a new model for museums to understand visitor experiences with art, use what they learn to transform their practices, and engage with audiences in an ever changing environment. The book has been hugely successful and is already in its second printing. Finally, we embarked on our strategic plan, to be completed in 2011, to ensure that we are well prepared for our future. These achievements become all the more impressive when considered in the context of the current economic climate affecting museums all over the country. All sources of contributed and earned revenues have been affected, as well as our endowment distribution. The solution has been to drive down expenses while optimizing program and marketing opportunities and seeking new sources of revenue. Most critical this year was the Trustee Initiative, which dramatically exceeded its target amount of $500,000. I would like to express my thanks to our distinguished Board of Trustees for their farsighted leadership and civic-mindedness in supporting the Museum in so many different ways. The Museum has also benefited from numerous other donations and fundraisers. Art Ball 2010: Coastlines raised over 1.5 million dollars. The annual Two by Two for AIDS and Art benefit event raised more than 1.7 million dollars to benefit the DMA's contemporary programs and acquisitions. Affair of the Art 2010: Great Impression raised more than $125,000, Art in Bloom raised almost $140,000, and Donor Circle memberships continue to generate 20% of our annual revenues. Corporations, such as Texas Instruments and Bank of America, contributed generously to Museum exhibitions and programs. I would like to offer my sincere appreciation to this year’s financial supporters. We also wish to express our immense gratitude to the following volunteer leaders, who have all contributed to the success of this year. We elected the new officers of the Board of Trustees for 2010–2011: Deedie Potter Rose, Chairman; Mary McDermott Cook and Cindy Rachofsky, Vice Presidents; Ann V. Hobson, Secretary; and Victor D. Almeida, Treasurer; and welcomed the following new trustees and representatives for 2010–2011: Naomi D. Aberly; Elaine B. Agather; Sharon Ballew, DMA League President; Gabriel Barbier-Mueller; Jonna Brashear, Junior League of Dallas Representative; J. E. R. Chilton, Honorary Trustee; John W. Dayton; José M. Gutiérrez; David J. Haemisegger; Charles Jacaman, Junior

Associates Circle Co-Chair; Debra Hunter Johnson; Linda Kao; Mary Noel Lamont; Patrick K. McGee; Forrest E. Miller; Jay A. Pack; Alden Pinnell; Judy Pollock, City of Dallas Cultural Affairs Commissioner; Jessie Price; and Catherine M. Rose. The Board wishes to thank this past year's officers and committee chairs: Mary McDermott Cook and Cindy Rachofsky, Vice Presidents; Linda Kao, Secretary; and Victor D. Almeida, Treasurer; Walter B. Elcock, Audit Committee; Patrick K. McGee, Budget and Finance Committee; Lucilo A. Peña, Building Committee; Margot B. Perot, Committee on Collections; Marguerite Steed Hoffman and Cindy Rachofsky, Committee on Trustees; Nancy Carlson and Sharon Young, Development Committee; Robert H. Dedman, Jr., Compensation and Benefits Committee; Richard R. Pollock, Education, Libraries, and Digital Initiatives Committee; Ronald G. Steinhart, Investment Committee; and Catherine M. Rose, Strategic Planning Committee. We recognize the following trustees, who retired in 2010: Dolores G. Barzune; Doris Bass; Barbara Thomas Lemmon; Katherine Mathes, Junior Associates Circle Co-Chair; Debbie Munir, Junior League of Dallas Representative; Gail Sachson, City of Dallas Cultural Affairs Commissioner; Gay Solomon; Marilyn Willems, DMA League President; and W. McDonald Williams. We greatly appreciate the dedicated leadership of these individuals during their tenure on the Board. In addition to the volunteer contributions of the Board of Trustees, we benefit from the dedication of numerous other volunteers, including our devoted Museum docents and the following special event and support organization chairs and leaders: Melissa Fetter, Art Ball Chair; Barbara Bigham, Art in Bloom Chair; Deborah and John Scott, The Forum Co-Chairs; Renee and Bill Lokey, An Affair of the Art Co-Chairs; Marilyn Willems, Dallas Museum of Art League President; Laura Green and Katherine Mathes, Junior Associates Circle Co-Chairs; Debbie Munir, Junior League of Dallas Representative; and Jan Showers and Elizabeth Showers, amfAR Two by Two for AIDS and Art Benefit Auction Co-Chairs. These committed and talented individuals gave countless hours and significant funds in fiscal year 2009–2010, helping us achieve our ambitious goals. The Museum wishes to note the deaths of the following patrons and friends, with gratitude for their involvement as trustees, members, donors, staff, docents, and volunteers: Robert W. Bybee, Minnie Cook, Harris Garrett, Sydney Hall, Mary Ella King (Mrs. Rollin), Milton P. Levy, Jr., Edgar G. McKee, John Moore, Marge Morrice, Edmund P. Pillsbury, Virginia C. Ramsey, Frank K. Ribelin, Hugh G. Robinson, Sadie Seay, Allen T. Segal, Margaret Moore Solomon, Anne Marie Walker, John L. Ware, and Carolyn Williams. We would also like to acknowledge the Museum’s talented staff members, led by Bonnie Pitman, who through their work and dedication ensure that the high standards of the Dallas Museum of Art are maintained and advanced. Without all of the people who contribute in so many ways to the welfare of the Museum— the patrons, sponsors, volunteers, members, and staff—the institution would not be the dynamic cultural center serving the North Texas community and broader art world that it is today. Despite budgetary constraints, we have not curtailed our hours of operation, remaining open every day of the week except Monday, and we offer free access to school groups and children under 12 and to our entire community during events such as First Tuesdays and Family Celebrations. The shared experiences and successes we have seen over the past quarter century are truly inspiring. The opening of the magnificent AT&T Performing Arts Center, which brings international attention to the city of Dallas and marks the completion of a twenty-five-year vision for the Dallas Arts District, is only the latest in a series of milestones that will continue with the opening of The Park in 2012 and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in 2013. As all eyes are on Dallas, the DMA is well prepared to embrace our future and continue our remarkable trajectory to be the essential creative resource for Dallas, North Texas, and the world.

Director’s Report

b on n i e p i tm a n the e u gene mc d e r m ott d i r ecto r

The past year has been one of celebration and experimentation, all of which revolved around three key themes: art, engagement, and achievement.

The extraordinary accomplishments outlined in this report would not have been possible without the contributions and dedicated work of our trustees, supporters, friends, and staff. It was a very exciting year, and I am pleased to present a report of the Museum’s broad range of activities and successes during fiscal year 2009–2010.

Art The year began against a backdrop of historical achievement as we welcomed our new neighbor, the AT&T Performing Arts Center, and celebrated our own 25th anniversary since the Museum opened its downtown location and became the cornerstone of the Dallas Arts District. We commemorated the occasion with two exhibitions that celebrated performance-themed objects, drawn mainly from the Museum’s collections. All the World’s a Stage: Celebrating Performance in the Visual Arts showcased more than one hundred works from the collections featuring performance and spanning 2,600 years of creativity from around the globe. The exhibition included video installations accompanying some pieces and an audio component offering samples of music from around the world, as well as a central video area where visitors could watch excerpts of interviews with local artists. Performance/Art, encompassing painting, sculpture, video, and installation, featured the work of six contemporary artists who have adapted elements and characteristics of theater, opera, and performance in their work. Amidst the celebration and reminiscence, the Museum also experienced phenomenal growth and enrichment throughout its comprehensive collections. Overall, the Museum’s holdings grew by ninety-four works in fiscal year 2009–2010. The extraordinary highlight of the year consists of six transformative acquisitions donated by the Eugene and Margaret McDermott Art Fund, Inc. They include two exquisite objects of Asante gold for the African collection—a linguist’s staff (okyeame poma) and a sword ornament in the form of a lion—and four European paintings— Caillebotte’s Yellow Roses in a Vase, created during Caillebotte’s most intense and fertile engagement with the still-life genre and the first work by Caillebotte to come into the Museum’s collections, in honor of Janet Kendall Forsythe; Kirchner’s Four Wooden Sculptures (recto)/Ice Skater (verso),

a double-sided canvas featuring images from two diverse periods in Kirchner’s career and representing the first painting by an artist from the Brücke group in the Museum’s collections; Signac’s Comblat-le-Château, the Meadow, from an important series of landscape paintings completed by the artist during the first crucial years of the neo-impressionist movement (this painting has not been on view since 1930); and Vuillard’s Chestnut Trees, a unique, early work that became the cartoon for a stained-glass window produced by Tiffany Studios. In addition, the public acknowledgment of Norma and Lamar Hunt as the previously anonymous donors in 1979 of The Icebergs by Frederic Church focused renewed press coverage and acclaim on this iconic masterwork from the Museum’s American art collection. Additional highlights include acquisitions by contemporary artists David Altmejd, Bruce Nauman, and Charline von Heyl; decorative arts objects such as an armchair by Gustav Stickley and an enameled vase featuring Viking motifs by George Paulding Farnham; a 4th- to 6th-century terracotta Thinking Bodhisattva from Afghanistan; and a Maya flint with heads of K’awil from between A.D. 600 and 900. As the collections continue to grow, we have found innovative ways to promote and showcase them. Our approach has been to display objects from the collections in a series of exhibitions tied together thematically. One example, The Lens of Impressionism: Photography and Painting Along the Normandy Coast, 1850–1874, organized by the University of Michigan Museum of Art and consisting of both loans and works from the collections, and the more broadly conceived Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea, drawn mainly from the Museum’s holdings, were paired in adjacent galleries to give an in-depth and expansive portrayal of the coastal experience over time and in various media. Coastlines was presented with an innovative multilayer sound installation created by graduate students and faculty from the University of Texas at Dallas. The Lens of Impressionism was accompanied by a special audio and smARTphone tour of the Museum’s Wendy and Emery Reves Collection, featuring select masterpieces by Manet, Cézanne, and other artists. The Museum also commemorated the 200th anniversary of Mexico’s independence with Mexico 200, a presentation of two additional thematically tied exhibitions, José Guadalupe Posada: The Birth of Mexican Modernism and Tierra y Gente: Modern Mexican Works on Paper, both of which celebrated Mexico’s long tradition of

exquisite artistry and were accompanied by a brochure highlighting the DMA���s Mexican collection of almost a thousand pieces, covering more than three millennia of Mexican art history. In September the Center for Creative Connections unveiled its innovative Encountering Space exhibition, a transformation of the entire C3 space, bringing a completely new look and feel to the Center while maintaining the interactive, exhilarating atmosphere that has made C3 so popular with visitors. I am deeply grateful to Kelli and Allen Questrom, the Meadows Foundation, Catalyst Donors, MetLife Foundation, and many others in the community for their generous support of this groundbreaking exhibition and the renovated learning spaces. Two other exhibitions this year have followed the publication of major scholarly catalogues. The Arts of Africa at the Dallas Museum of Art, an award-winning publication celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Museum’s stellar collection of African art by Eugene and Margaret McDermott, and the first in a series of catalogues that will

document the important treasures housed in our museum, preceded the exhibition African Masks: The Art of Disguise, which showcased loans along with masks from the Museum’s collections, complemented by additional masks on view in the galleries. Loops of rare video footage highlighted many of the objects, documenting their use in ceremonies, rituals, and dances, and a smARTphone tour accompanied the exhibition, generously supported by the Sara Lee Foundation. The exhibition catalogue Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement preceded the exhibition of the same name, which opened in Newark at the end of the fiscal year. This monumental and comprehensive exhibition, organized by the Dallas Museum of Art, was supported by a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Both the catalogue and exhibition debuted to great acclaim and highlighted important Stickley objects in the Museum’s collections. In the summer, the first U.S. retrospective of the work of Belgian contemporary artist Luc Tuymans presented us with an opportunity to showcase important works by the artist from collections in Dallas, including our own.

Engagement In addition to the expansion and presentation of our collections, we devoted ourselves to our public through various strategies of enhanced access and community engagement. The Museum offered over 6,300

programs enjoyed by nearly 300,000 visitors, exceeding our goal of engaging one in two visitors more deeply with art: 71% of visitors participated in an educational program this year. Late Night attendance averages 40,000 annually, and First Tuesdays enjoyed an explosive growth in attendance; the average First Tuesday drew 2,500 visitors, more than 50% higher than a year ago. The 480,100 visitors who came through our doors during fiscal year 2009–2010 are an indicator of the Museum’s success in sustaining robust attendance figures. Over the past year, the Museum has continuously expanded access for visitors. We provide free admission to a large percentage of our overall attendees—including children, student groups, and low-income families— through outreach partnerships. Families enter free of charge on First Tuesdays and several family days throughout the year. We expanded the reach of our afterschool programs and engaged in a partnership with Dallas-based nonprofit Big Thought, including the SLANT 45 project for Super Bowl XLV. We are always striving to reach new audiences at the Dallas Museum of Art. The Museum launched new programs serving children with autism and their families, adults experiencing the early stages of Alzheimer’s, and children and adults with visual impairment as well as learning disabilities. Another way we engage our public is through community partnerships, which forge connections both with other museums and with educational institutions and nonprofits. This allows us to engage their respective audiences while exposing our own audiences to a range of exciting new synergies and educational opportunities. For example, faculty and alumni of the Division of Art and the Center of Creative Computation, Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University, created a C3 community partner response installation entitled Living Room in the Center for Creative Connections as part of C3’s current exhibition, Encountering Space. The Museum is dedicated to collaborating with artists. Textile artist Lesli Robertson conceived, directed, and helped create the community response installation Woven Records, installed in C3 as part of its previous exhibition, Materials & Meanings. Artist Jill Foley created an installation over the summer in C3’s temporary space in the Tower Gallery, using recycled cardboard that enveloped visitors in an active space. In addition, we refreshed our weekly series Thursday Night Live to provide artist-led workshops in the Center for Creative Connections. Visitor and community engagement rely on continuous research to deepen our understanding of our audiences and their connections with art. January 2010 saw the publication of the sixth research report, conducted jointly by the DMA and by museum planning, evaluation, and research firm Randi Korn & Associates, Inc., entitled Web User Research: 2009 Survey of Arts Network Users. These six studies, which provide the basis for the Museum’s evolving Framework for Engaging with Art (FEA), investigated our visitors’ knowledge of, responsiveness to, and comfort in connecting with art, their behavior as art consumers, and their preferences for types of interpretation and programming. The resulting Framework for Engaging with Art provides a revolutionary tool for understanding and thus engaging our visitors. For more information on FEA and its implementation, I refer you to my book Ignite the Power of Art: Advancing Visitor Engagement in Museums, co-authored with Ellen Hirzy and published by the Dallas Museum of Art.

Achievement I am happy to report that the Museum received numerous prestigious awards during the 2009–2010 fiscal year. We were voted the 2010 Best Museum for Families in Dallas Child (in 2009 they named the DMA Best Cultural Spot for Families). For the second year in a row, the Museum received the Nickolodeon Parents' Pick Award for Best Museum, and the exhibition catalogue The Arts of Africa at the Dallas Museum of Art, by Dr. Roslyn A. Walker, Senior Curator of the Arts of Africa, the Americas, and the Pacific and The Margaret McDermott Curator of African Art, received a 2010 Texas Association of Museums Mitchell A. Wilder Gold citation. We are also considered a leader in the use of technology and social media: several staff members were invited to speak at the 2010 Handheld Conference at the Tate Modern in London, and DMA followers on Twitter and Facebook number close to 15,000 each. The Museum participated in national Twitter “Ask the Curator Day” in September, an event that received over 9,000 tweets internationally, and we launched the DMA blog Uncrated to critical acclaim. A grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services will allow the Museum to post teaching materials online, expanding our outreach to teachers directly in the classroom. The Museum underwent a number of changes and renovations during the year. As mentioned, the Center for Creative Connections was transformed by the new exhibition Encountering Space, which is far more than just an installation: the construction took a familiar space and re-created it as something new and fresh. We also refurbished Fleischner Courtyard with the full collaboration of the artist, Richard Fleischner, making the courtyard more user-friendly through new lighting, seating, and a more stable floor to allow for additional programs and increased usage. The Museum’s inner courtyards benefited from new plantings and repairs, resulting in more beautiful outdoor spaces within the Museum’s galleries. The entire first floor and exterior areas were repainted and refreshed to celebrate the opening of the AT&T Performing Arts Center. As part of the ongoing art storage project, funded by the Hoblitzelle Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, several spaces were renovated for Archives, Works on Paper, and Small Objects storage. Finally, the Museum received vitally important Transport Security Administration certification from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration to ship works of art. We are one of only a few museums in the country to achieve this clearance level, and it is a testament to our high standards of organization and excellence. All of the activities documented in this report would not be possible without our dedicated supporters. I am pleased to report that we were able to maintain our hours of operation and commitment to staff. We accomplished this primarily because of the excellent work of our staff and

m u se u m

the generosity and aid of many close friends and trustees, especially the hugely successful Trustee Initiative, which raised more than $570,000 in operating support for the Museum, as well as ongoing events such as the Art Ball and Two by Two for AIDS and Art, which annually bring significant funds to the Museum’s operating budget. For your support of the Museum and our mission during this critical time, we offer our heartfelt thanks. A number of exciting milestones lie before us during the coming fiscal year. We will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Wendy and Emery Reves Collection, we will unveil several newly installed collection galleries, we will continue our experimentations with technology in our exhibitions and galleries, we will increase our engagement with our community through strategic partnerships and access opportunities, and we will present our strategic plan. The DMA-organized traveling exhibition Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement will come to Dallas

Throughout all of the developments, challenges, surprises, and crowning achievements, the Museum will continue to develop its collections, create innovative new exhibitions and programming, and pursue community and visitor engagement. With sincere appreciation, I would like to thank all of the Museum’s friends and supporters—the City of Dallas, trustees, staff, volunteers, donors, and members—who enable the Dallas Museum of Art to be a great resource for the public it serves.

Education During the past year, the Education Division explored new ways to engage visitors through experiments in our programming, new partnerships with artists and other community members, the opening of our second exhibition in the Center for Creative Connections (C3), and the expansion of early learning and access programs.

Visitors enjoy art-making activities during the opening celebration of Encountering Space in the Center for Creative Connections

The exhibition All the World’s a Stage: Celebrating Performance in the Visual Arts provided an opportunity to spark community dialogue about the impulse to create and perform. The Museum invited local artists and performers to write personal response labels for works of art in the exhibition, and community partners such as Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Conte de Loyo Flamenco Theatre, Roger Boykin, area actors, and many others activated a space inside the exhibition called The Stage with regular dance, theater, and music performances and film showings, which were experienced by more than 4,000 people. Inspired by the performance-themed exhibitions on view in the fall, Arts & Letters Live presented Vocal Colors, a multidisciplinary extravaganza featuring twelve performers that wove together song, art, poetry, dance, and drama. The Museum launched a new conversation series, State of the Arts, exploring

the creative process and the nature of performance with local leaders and performers. Moderated by KERA host and producer Jeff Whittington, it stirred lively discussion about collaborative possibilities between artists and Arts District organizations in future years. As part of the Museum’s commitment to engaging our visitors in dynamic ways, the Museum continued several long-term partnerships. The June Late Night attracted over 5,000 visitors as we continued our partnership with the Nasher Sculpture Center and Crow Collection of Asian Art for our second annual Summer Block Party. It celebrated the exhibition Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea with hula dancers in the street, lectures on surf culture, ukulele music in the galleries, and an outdoor concert featuring surf guitar legend Dick Dale. A six-week partnership with Ovation TV

34 education

allowed summer visitors free admission on Thursday evenings to enjoy the exhibition, galleries, and Coastlines on Film series in collaboration with the Dallas Film Society. We also partnered with our longtime collaborator the University of Texas at Dallas through the creation of a sound installation for the exhibition Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea. Led by professor Dr. Frank Dufour, four graduate students at UT Dallas and nine undergraduate students at the Université du Sud Toulon-Var in Toulon, France, created sonic interpretations for works of art, including both digital and musical compositions. Visitors delighted in the opportunity to hear sound creations that paralleled the visual experiences of the exhibition. Community partnerships with C3 involved a whole new cluster of people from the area. In January 2010, artist Lesli Robertson beautifully installed Woven Records, a community art project that included 581 personal collages from participants. Partnerships deepened with faculty, alumni, and students at Southern Methodist University's Meadows School of the Arts as they developed and installed a multisensory work of art for the Encountering Space exhibition. In collaboration with Big Thought, seven professional artists and writers from the Dallas–Fort Worth area led SLANT 45 (Service Learning Adventures in North Texas) workshops in C3 designed to teach participants how to reflect on their personal experiences and service learning projects through art. The SLANT 45 project, presented by the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, culminated in three art exhibitions prior to Super Bowl XLV. The Center for Creative Connections presented several remarkable projects demonstrating the Museum’s ongoing commitment to creativity and innovation. Artist Jill Foley’s The Living Room bridged the closing of Materials & Meanings in July and the opening of Encountering Space in September. Foley’s gallery-sized cardboard installation was a witty, magical, and social place for learning, interacting, and contributing. New art-making activities were periodically presented, and visitors’ creations were then incorporated into the installation, documenting the wonderful variety of visitors’ experiences. A benchmark accomplishment, Encountering Space involved a total redesign of the Center, complete with eleven works of art from the Museum’s collections, a new floor plan, and new participatory elements. The exhibition asks visitors to consider how space is used by artists to create depth, dimension, and meaning while also offering areas for visitor participation. Through the new C3 Visiting Artist program, visitors were able to connect with 342 regional and national artists in the fields of visual art, sound design, installation and performance art, new media, storytelling, architecture, graphic design, photography, spoken word, and dance. Over 130,000 visitors started their journey through the collections in C3 this past year. In 2010 the Museum expanded its programming for very young children. Attendance at our monthly free First Tuesday program grew exponentially, with over 13,000 preschool-aged children and their families participating in art-making activities, enjoying tours of the collections, and participating in story time with our Dallas Public Library partners. We piloted a Toddler

museum

Art class for two and three year olds and created parent classes, tours for preschool groups, and artist-led family workshops. Focusing on visitors with special needs, the Museum’s access programs tripled this year to engage diverse new audiences—children with autism, visitors with vision impairment, and visitors with early stage dementia and their care partners. We partnered with local community specialists, artists, and national advocacy groups to create programs tailored to these visitors’ special needs, from Family Celebrations just for children with autism and their families to the pilot program Meaningful Moments for visitors with Alzheimer’s disease. In celebration of Art Education for the Blind’s Art Beyond Sight Awareness month, we collaborated with John Bramblitt, an artist who is blind, to help visitors experience art through senses other than their vision. We expanded a thriving partnership with Avance, whose mission is “to unlock America’s potential by strengthening families in at-risk communities through effective parent education and support programs,” and provided tools to empower them to teach their families in creative environments. Through inventive use of technology we created and supported new opportunities for connecting with K–12 teachers. Educators participating in a unique two-part workshop in conjunction with the exhibition The Lens of Impressionism: Photography and Painting Along the Normandy Coast, 1850–1874 experienced first-hand the technology and process of 19th-century wetplate photography with artist-educator Frank Lopez. Using 21st-century technology, staff launched Connect: Teachers, Technology, and Art, a two-year grant project made possible by the Institute for Museum and Library Services. Connect involves an in-depth collaboration with twenty teachers to redesign online teaching materials for the Museum’s African and Asian collections using new scholarship and dynamic multimedia formats. We presented two new communications for K–12 educators this year: the Dallas Museum of Art Educator Blog receives over 1,500 views per month since launching in October 2009, and the Educator E-newsletter is sent to over 2,400 educators monthly.
