The Eiteljorg Museum 2016 Annual Report

Page 1


2016 A Remarkable Year When we reflect on all that happened in 2016 at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, we are struck with a feeling of accomplishment and profound sense of gratitude. The generosity of the Eiteljorg’s donors, patrons, members and volunteers made possible the work of the museum’s staff to share amazing exhibitions, programs and experiences.

Also notable in 2016 was the move of Indian Market and Festival back onto museum grounds as well as another successful year for Quest for the West®, with nearly $1 million in art sales. To stage special exhibitions and associated programming requires the Eiteljorg to grow its operating endowment and secure additional funding sources. That’s why we are deeply

The theme of the Eiteljorg’s 2016 annual report is “Relevance, Community, Vitality,” which in so many ways reflects a reinvigorated museum and its mission that began 28 years ago. In telling the full story of the American West and Native America in all its diversity and complexity, the Eiteljorg Museum strives to be relevant to and deeply engaged in the communities we serve. The year’s highlights were so numerous it’s difficult to isolate only a few. We were heartened by strong visitor interest in two special exhibitions: The Grand Canyon, from March to August 2016, and Titan of the West: The Adams Collection of Western and Native American Art, from November 2016 to February 2017. A Thomas Moran oil painting from 1917, also titled The Grand Canyon, appeared in both exhibitions; the painting was one of hundreds of art works bequeathed to the museum by the late Houston businessman Kenneth S. “Bud” Adams. Bud and his wife Nancy Adams were passionate art collectors; and we were deeply moved that Bud willed this private collection to the Eiteljorg for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.


Exciting events took place in 2016 at the Eiteljorg Museum including, clockwise from top left: Conversations: The Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship exhibition; The Grand Canyon exhibition; Juneteenth celebration; the Quest for the West® Art Sale and Show opening reception; Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure; WestFest; the Titan of the West gala; and the 24th annual Indian Market & Festival.

grateful for the ongoing grant support of numerous foundations such as the Lilly Endowment, among others. Their commitment allows the museum to shape ideas into results, creating opportunities for artists and allowing us to acquire more great art for our collections. To that end, our Board of Directors has been extraordinarily supportive and far-sighted in its vision for the museum. With the staff and board’s

participation, the Eiteljorg made important business decisions in 2016 to position itself for the coming years, including adopting a five-year strategic plan. We are excited about the opportunities to rebuild and re-imagine the museum’s galleries to make for more memorable experiences for our visitors. The Eiteljorg redoubled its efforts in 2016 to reach out to diverse communities, on the Near West Side of Indianapolis and beyond, to encourage families and young people to cultivate their own interest in art. Our goal is that every patron entering the museum will find in the art and exhibits something they can relate to and identify with, regardless of their age or background. Particularly at a time when our society can feel divided, we hope that art generally and the Eiteljorg Museum specifically can bring people together in common appreciation of the bonds we all share. Much of the credit for the museum’s successes in 2016 – a year of renewed relevance, community and vitality – belongs to our donors, supporters and volunteers. We hope that we can count on your support of the Eiteljorg Museum in the year ahead.

Making a Difference with Art, History and Culture Thanks to its longtime supporters and donors, the Eiteljorg Museum featured exceptional exhibitions in 2016 that helped tell the remarkable stories of the American West and Native Americans in all their diversity and complexity. Through a mix of contemporary and historic art and related


programming events, the Eiteljorg educated and inspired visitors throughout the year.

Eiteljorg Publications The museum reaches a broad audience through the publication of books and catalogues created to support its exhibitions. Based upon the scholarship of staff and consult-

out to shop in the artist tents on the front lawn and throughout the museum building, meet Native American artists and learn about their art. Market-goers enjoyed performances under The Sails by contemporary band Pamyua (Yup’ik/Inuit/African American) and flute player Tim Blueflint (Bad River Chippewa/Comanche), hoop dancer Nakotah LaRance (Hopi/Tewa/Assiniboine) and storyteller Teresa Webb (Anishinaabe). During the market, art judges awarded more than $20,000 in the form of prizes in 10 divisions, bestowing Best of Show on Kathleen Wall (Jemez Pueblo) for her sculpture Place Where I Began. In September 2016, the featured exhibitions gallery was transformed for the 11th annual Quest for the West® Art Show and Sale. Forty-nine top Western artists exhibited recent paintings, drawings and sculptures. For the opening weekend sale, collectors from across the nation traveled to the Eiteljorg for a chance to purchase these exceptional works of art. The Quest® art remained available for purchase over the next month. All told, Quest for the West® generated nearly $1 mil-

At the Quest for the West® preview party, Betsey was recognized by the museum as a Collector of Distinction. Enriching Collections Excitement built throughout the year for November’s opening of Titan of the West: The Adams Collection of Western and Native American Art. The spectacular collection was gifted to the Eiteljorg by the late Kenneth

and Ashley Holland. This book is being distributed by the University of Oklahoma Press and has been used in university classes at a number of campuses. Johanna Blume produced the 2016 catalogue to accompany Quest for the West® with

A major figure in professional football and owner of the NFL Tennessee Titans, Bud Adams was a Houston oilman and Culver Military Academy alumnus who was proud of his Cherokee heritage and became a prominent private collector. Titan of the West featured paintings by Fredric Remington, Charles Schreyvogel, E.I. Couse, Frank Tenney Johnson and many others, as well as Native American beadwork, quillwork, pottery, moccasins, tobacco pipes, baskets and other objects.

Bromstrup. The Eiteljorg broke a single-day attendance record for a non-Indian Market day on Jan. 16, 2017 – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day – when 3,100 visitors experienced the final day of Jingle Rails for the 2016-2017 holiday season.

Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure


Deeply Rooted in the Community All during 2016, the Eiteljorg hosted talks by curators, book discussions, gallery tours led by volunteer guides and programming events where everyone – longtime members and first-time visitors alike – could learn the fascinating stories of Native America and the American West. Through programming and events, the Eiteljorg served families, seniors and young professionals, reached out to diverse and ever-growing audiences and directed outreach to four underserved Near West Side

locations: the Haughville, Hawthorne, Stringtown and We Care neighborhoods. Art enthusiasts, history buffs, music lovers, geology aficionados and those who love the West were brought together through diverse programming related to the March-through-August exhibition The Grand Canyon. Highlights included personal stories and a musical performance by Ed Kabotie (Hopi/Tewa), an intimate plein air workshop by renowned artist Peter Nisbet, a talk by former National Park

Service historian Dwight Pitcaithley and an exhilarating presentation on canyon animals with Animalia Inc. Hundreds of Eiteljorg Junior Rangers were minted, thousands of canyon stories were shared and numerous canyon adventures were inspired and planned. The Eiteljorg’s Artists in Residence program brought to the museum contemporary Native American artists, who in turn helped provide cultural and arts programming at the museum and in the community.

In 2016 the museum’s Public Programs and Education Departments organized events and activities that drew many visitors to the Eiteljorg. Summer Under The Sails events on the Christel DeHaan Family Terrace drew more than 16,000 visitors from Memorial Day to mid-August.

and donated approximately 14,500 hours of service. Meanwhile, the Eiteljorg reorganized and revitalized its Agave auxiliary group for young professionals under age 40. Looking broadly to local and regional tourism, the Eiteljorg collaborated closely with groups such as Visit Indy, Downtown Indy, Inc. and White River State Park on promotional efforts to bring synergy to marketing downtown attractions, lodging and hospitality. The Frank and Katrina Basile Museum Store and Museum Café remained popular draws, and the museum building saw steady business as a rental venue for weddings and corporate meetings, with excellent food service provided by Kahn’s Catering.

Visitors also enjoyed cultural experiences at the museum’s celebrations of Juneteenth, the 24th annual Indian Market and Festival, WestFest and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Eiteljorg guests shopped for art from local artists at the popular Women in Art Market in March and Winter Market in December. Throughout, the museum’s 355 volunteers provided invaluable assistance in all the year’s events 2016 Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

Juneteenth exemplifies the complex and diverse story of our country's history, a story we strive to reflect through the Eiteljorg's offerings year round.–John Vanausdall, President and CEO, Eiteljorg Museum

Vital Signs: Poised for Growth The support of donors and grantmaking entities allowed the Eiteljorg Museum to conserve, exhibit and interpret amazing art and objects in its collections – consistent with the vision of founder Harrison Eiteljorg – so that all age groups and demographics can learn from and appreciate our nation’s varied cultures and history. For the Eiteljorg, 2016 was an important transition year. In March, the Board of Directors adopted a strategic plan that sets forth the museum’s goals for the next five years. The


plan aims to grow the museum’s endowment – including cash, pledges and irrevocable planned gifts – consistent with the long-term strategy to have a balanced operating support of one third from the endowment, one third from annual contributions and one third from earned revenue. The strategic plan also addresses the need to rebuild and re-imagine museum galleries to create more engaging and effective visitor experiences. The plan calls for increasing focus on Native American cultures of the Great Lakes region, utilizing resources to

effectively provide lessons of cultural diversity and marketing the museum more comprehensively in surrounding states. With the Board’s support, the Eiteljorg in 2016 reorganized the Development and Marketing Departments into the new Advancement Department, to underscore a new strategic emphasis on building the endowment and growing all sources of revenue. Also, the longtime vice president of development, Suzanne Tardy Maxwell, retired with the museum’s profound

Grants At Work Foundations from across the nation support the work of the Eiteljorg Museum, and in 2016 alone they contributed more than $2 million toward that mission. The Eiteljorg is enormously grateful to the many foundations and endowments, such as the Lilly Endowment, that historically have supported the museum, both for general operating support and in sponsoring specific events or projects. Among others, noteworthy grants announced in 2015 that were put to use in 2016 included:

A $117,069 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) supports a three-year project to conserve 30 works of art including the massive triptych painting, October Suite: Grand Canyon, 1991 by Wilson Hurley. From December 2015 through January 2016, visitors had front-row seats to observe conservators cleaning and stabilizing the paintings.

A $6,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through its Preservation Assistance Grant program funded a detailed condition survey of the American Indian art and cultural objects from the Kenneth S. “Bud” Adams collection.

A $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) supported the 2016 Indian Market and Festival.

thanks for her many years of service. Nataly Lowder joined the Eiteljorg as the new vice president for advancement and now leads fund-raising and marketing efforts. As John Vanausdall celebrated his 20th anniversary as president and CEO in 2016, the museum enjoyed steady membership interest and a high profile in the community, and held several exhibit openings well-attended by members and supporters. The Marketing and Communications Department also revamped the member magazine, Storyteller.

Especially since we are a museum in large part about Native Americans, and because these are living cultures of today, we have nurtured extraordinarily special relationships with the people themselves, their leadership and the artists. I’m proud of what we have accomplished in that area. We’ve also been very deliberate in telling the complete story of the American West, one that’s really about the cultural diversity that our West has always embodied.” –John Vanausdall, President and CEO, Eiteljorg Museum Separately, the Eiteljorg in 2016 received an important grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust for animal-welfare programming for the 2017 special exhibition Dogs: Faithful and True. As 2016 ended, the Eiteljorg Museum geared up for another exciting year, including Dogs: Faithful and True from March 4 to Aug. 6, 2017, and the summative review of the 10th biennial round of the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship exhibition, Native Art Now! opening Nov. 12, 2017.

Meanwhile, a fund supported by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust provided for maintenance of outdoor sculptures. During the fall 2016 annual maintenance and cleaning of the Ken Bunn sculpture Whitetail Deer, detached reeds were reattached and bent reeds were straightened to bring the bronze sculpture fountain back as close as possible to its original 1989 appearance.

Hazardous materials such as arsenic sometimes are found in objects in museum collections, often a result of previous fumigation. These Blackfoot leggings (above photo) that are part of the Adams collection tested positive for arsenic during a recent conservation treatment. Using X-Ray Fluorescence testing technology or XRF, museum collection specialists can test for the presence of toxins in objects so that appropriate safety measures can be used to manage the collection. Eiteljorg registrar Christa Barleben (right photo) uses a portable XRF unit to test a collection object.

Collections Acquisitions and Activities To serve the Eiteljorg Museum's patrons through constantly changing exhibitions and to fulfill our responsibilities toward care of the collections, there is a constant range of activities by collections, curatorial and exhibitions staff members. A stable core of staff continued efforts in 2016, but there was a notable change when Ashley Holland (Cherokee) left in the fall to pursue her doctorate at the University of Oklahoma. We welcomed Dorene Red Cloud (Oglala Lakota) as the new assistant curator of Native American art. Dorene brings a great deal of knowledge and passion to our collective efforts. Aside from major exhibitions, staff also produced a show in the Myrta Pulliam Gallery of Photography on the photography of Laura Wilson, and made a wide range of changes in the core galleries. This kept a constant flow of new items on exhibit so that any visitor during the year could see something refreshing throughout the museum each time they visited. Perhaps the most demanding activity in 2016 was a constant flow of work with consulting conservators and other specialists to catalogue, clean, conserve, reframe and evaluate paintings and artifacts featured in the Titan of the West exhibition. To house the Adams collection and upgrade storage, grants and other funding made it possible to com-

plete installation of new shelving, racks and drawers and to finalize installation of the new flooring, lighting, ceiling and an advanced fire detection system. In the midst of all these activities, the staff processed 93 new acquisitions – gifts from artists, collectors and estates along with select purchases – to support specific exhibit and collection projects.
