president’s report

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Milwaukee Art Museum, I am pleased to report that the twelve months covered by this report (September 1, 2014–August 31, 2015) saw unprecedented developments in the life of the Museum, in addition to prudent fiscal management. During this reporting fiscal year, the Museum began a major renovation of its Collection Galleries. This $34 million project, set for completion in November 2015, includes not only the first-ever comprehensive renovation of the galleries, but also a new east addition that will reconnect the galleries to the lakefront. Thanks to critical support from Milwaukee County, which provided $10 million toward deferred maintenance repairs, this historic project repositions the Museum as a leader among museums nationally. We also wish to acknowledge the hundreds of donors to the Plan for the Future campaign. Stellar exhibitions again marked the more significant highlights of this past fiscal year. We are grateful for our partnership with Glasgow Museums, Scotland, which provided the amazing works for Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting. Visitors marveled at the international fashion design presented through Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair. And one of the finest collections of modern art in America delighted visitors in the exhibition Van Gogh to Pollock: Modern Rebels, organized with the Albright-Knox Art Gallery of Buffalo, New York. Core to the mission of the Museum is education. Tens of thousands of schoolchildren visited the Museum this past year as part of the School and Teacher programs; and thousands of families enjoyed Kohl’s Art Generation programs, even though the studio was temporarily relocated during construction. Our continued growth in family-level memberships is a testament to the relevance of the learning experiences offered at the Museum.

6

We have so many to thank for their continued investment in the Museum, including our community partners and sponsors who provided valuable financial support for exhibitions and special programs. Our nearly 20,000 Member households are the backbone of support for the annual operation of the Museum. Whether President’s Circle Members or Family Members, Individual or Director’s level, combined, these households provide several million dollars annually to ensure the Museum continues the highest level of programs, run by the best staff talent available. With the reopening of the extensively renovated Museum in sight, we are looking to the future and the ways in which the art experiences will continue to match the expectations of an ever-growing and diversifying community. As I reflect on my first year as Board President, I have a renewed appreciation for all that goes into presenting the Milwaukee Art Museum to the community. Milwaukee is in the midst of a renaissance of sorts in downtown development. Yet the challenges and opportunities of this great city remind us that art experiences such as those offered by the Museum can, and must be, catalytic as well as inspirational for all who visit. It’s a tall order for a great community. We look forward to the new Milwaukee Art Museum. Thank you again for your support.

Donald Layden President, Board of Trustees

director’s report Dear Members and Friends of the Museum, What an exciting year it has been at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Not only did we once again end the fiscal year with a balanced budget, but we also grew the endowment and launched a major construction project, on budget. Thanks to generous support from hundreds of contributors to the Plan for the Future campaign, we will open the “new” Milwaukee Art Museum in November 2015—rebuilt, redesigned, and reimagined. I say “new” because the Plan for the Future calls for a top to bottom renovation of the Saarinen and Kahler buildings, including correction of significant deferred maintenance issues, which, when completed, will result in a transformed Museum. In addition, the galleries will follow an entirely new layout scheme, providing a unified presentation of the history of art, as well as exciting and unique ways to engage with the works on view. For the first time ever, the Museum will present its worldclass collection of American and decorative arts together, in the new Constance and Dudley Godfrey Wing of American Art. Thanks to major support from the Herzfeld Foundation, the lower level galleries will now be the Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts. Photography, film, video, digital media, and special light installations form the basis for what will be one of the few centers for photography and media arts in America. And the new east addition, or “East End,” will offer a connection to the lakefront, including the return of an east entrance along the lake walk. The accomplishments over the past twelve months would not have been possible without significant support from Milwaukee County, which provided $10 million toward the $34 million renovation project. Achievements such as this come only when the community of supporters comes together, believing in the vision, supporting the plan, and sustaining the enterprise through annual support. Together we identified changes necessary to protect the buildings and the collections of the Museum. Together, with your support, we managed to address the longstanding deferred maintenance issues of the older buildings housing the galleries. Together, with your support, we kept the Museum operations strong and even thriving this past year. 8

We extend our thanks to those who provided support through their campaign contributions, and to the thousands of supporters who kept their annual operating support strong during this difficult and challenging time of construction. This is the last annual report letter that I will write after eight years at the helm of the Milwaukee Art Museum. My retirement in May 2016 comes after an unprecedented amount of change, both physical and programmatic at the Museum. I am so deeply grateful to all of you who support the Museum annually and who supported me. I cannot believe how fast the time has flown by. It seems like only yesterday that I arrived from California, returning to my home state of Wisconsin, to lead the Museum. The challenges were many and the opportunities plentiful as the Board of Trustees and staff maneuvered one of the most difficult economic recessions in decades. I am forever grateful for the confidence and trust placed in me by the Board of Trustees. Behind the successes of the past years is the amazing leadership of the trustees of the Museum who advised and guided us on this journey and offered their resources to ensure our success. As I close out my final chapter at the Museum, I especially want to thank the talented staff and amazing volunteers who work so hard every day to fulfill the mission to present art in order to inspire and educate all who come through the doors of the Museum. Lastly, I thank you, our Members, for your continued support of the programs, exhibitions, and education initiatives. Without your investment in the Museum, none of what we offer to the great community of Milwaukee would be possible. Thank you all for yet another exciting and successful year at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Daniel T. Keegan Director

curatorial report This was an especially exciting and challenging year for the Curatorial Department at the Museum. While renovation work was happening in two buildings on campus, a robust schedule of exhibitions was presented in the Baker/ Rowland Galleries in the Quadracci Pavilion. Curatorial staff coordinated the presentation of these exhibitions while also planning for the complete top-down reinstallation of the renovated galleries. To accommodate that renovation, staff executed the incredible feat of turning the galleries of the Kahler building into temporary art storage for approximately twenty-eight thousand works—the majority of the Museum’s Collection—as repair work and gallery renovation occurred in the Saarinen building. Acquisition activity in fiscal year 2015 also reflected the anticipation of the Collection Galleries reopening, and the ambitious work of the Museum’s curators. There were astute purchases, generous gifts of significant works, and robust collecting in photography and new media. Several highlights are featured below. ACQUISITIONS Decorative Art The Museum acquired exceptional twentieth- and twentyfirst-century design objects this year, including Margaret De Patta’s Place Setting (1936), which was purchased with funds from the Edward U. Demmer Foundation. De Patta has been the subject of major recent exhibitions and retrospectives, including one at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, resulting in renewed attention on her life and career. Her flatware is extremely rare, and she made only eight known models of this particular service. Other examples appear in the Dallas Museum of Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, and other major museums. The set the Milwaukee Art Museum purchased was the only one not yet in a museum collection, making its acquisition even more exciting. European Art There were several outstanding additions to the Museum’s collection of paintings, including Pieter Cornelisz. van Slingeland’s A Young Woman at a Window with a Parrot and a Birdcage (ca. 1670)—a classic work from the important school of Leiden fine painting. Pieter

12

Cornelisz. van Slingeland (Dutch, 1640–1691) was one of the most successful students of the famous Leiden fijnschilder Gerrit Dou (1613–1675). Genre scenes such as this were highly coveted and collected, especially with collectors in eighteenth-century France, and would have been influential for French artists of the “neoDutch” school such as Martin Drölling, whose work was added to the Museum’s collection in 2013. The Museum acquired a wonderful variety of prints this year, including Henri Charles Guérard’s Diner Dentu, Premiere Invitation (ca. 1880)—a gift of the Hockerman Charitable Trust. The playful nineteenth-century dinner invitation is a brilliant example of the so-called French Etching Revival and is a charming complement to the Museum’s extensive collection of nineteenth-century prints. American Art Charles De Wolf Brownell’s The Bay of Matanzas, Cuba (1860) was purchased with funds from Andrew Ziegler. This canvas is an exceptional example of the mid-nineteenthcentury fascination that American artists had with traveling to and documenting exotic locales. Brownell is particularly esteemed for his extremely rare Cuban pictures, which represent part of what has been called the “tropical renaissance.” This painting fills a gap by both adding an unprecedented artist to the collection and serving as a major, large-scale anchor for the American landscape galleries. Photography Several magnificent photographs were added to the collection this year. Barbara Kasten’s Construct LB-5 (1982) and Ray Krueger Metzker’s Boy and Tire (69 MX-IX) (1969) were purchased through the Herzfeld Foundation Acquisition Fund. Kasten was one of the artists included in the Museum’s 2013 exhibition Color Rush: 75 Years of Color Photography in America, and this is the artist’s first work to enter the collection. Metzker is an important figure in the collection as both a native Milwaukeean and an important member of the Chicago School. His composite photograph of a boy and a tire is an especially exciting addition to the collection, as it was one of the photographs featured in Metzker’s 1970 exhibition at the then-named Milwaukee Art Center.

Lisa Oppenheim’s Man Holding Large Camera Photographing a Cataclysmic Event, Possibly a Volcano Erupting. 1908/2012 (Version XIII) (2012) was purchased through the Christine A. Symchych and James P. McNulty Acquisition Fund. Oppenheim made the black-and-white photograph by first creating a negative from a digital image of smoke and then exposing the negative using firelight. Oppenheim’s photographs are in dialogue with the work of other contemporary artists who utilize unique processes, making this work a wonderful addition to the Museum’s collection of contemporary photography. Trevor Paglen’s Detachment 3, Air Force Flight Test Center, Groom Lake, NV, Distance ~26 Miles (2008) was purchased with funds from the Photography Council in honor of the 125th anniversary of the Museum. This

is the first Paglen work to enter the collection, and its addition builds on the Museum’s growing collection of photography of the American West since 1970. Video Art Over the past year, the Museum has been working to expand its collection of film and video in preparation for the newly dedicated galleries in the Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts. Purchased through the Leonard and Bebe LeVine Art Acquisition Fund, Charles Atlas’s Painting by Numbers (2011) is a three-projector environment that gives choreographic movement and explosive dynamism to computergenerated numbers (digits 0–6). The work is a significant addition to the Museum’s collection of media arts.

MUSEUM LIBRARY/ARCHIVES The Milwaukee Art Museum’s George Peckham Miller Art Research Library continued to serve the research needs of Museum staff, docents, students, teachers, and scholars through the acquisition of vital library resources. Through generous support from the Alice and Lucia Stern Library Fund, the Mae E. Demmer Charitable Trust, the international catalogue exchange program, and numerous private donations, the library added important resources to its research collection. In fiscal year 2015, the library

14

acquired the two-volume sets Kandinsky: Catalogue Raisonné of the Oil-Paintings and Kandinsky Watercolours: Catalogue Raisonné, along with An Eames Anthology: Articles, Film Scripts, Interviews, Letters, Notes, Speeches and Oral History and Art: Painting: Interviews with Edward Hopper, Brice Marden, Agnes Martin, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers and Frank Stella, among others. The library also acquired several rare books including Het Vlas (The Flax) by Dutch artist Bart van der Leck. The Het Vlas is the only example of an illustrated book from the De Stijl movement.


CONSERVATION In addition to the conservation and preparation of hundreds of artworks never previously exhibited, the Conservation Department was involved in the careful packing and moving of the Collection during renovation. A special sponsorship program meant that specific paintings in the European art collection were conserved thanks to members in the Fine Arts Society support group. These included Gustave Courbet’s Clément Laurier, Corrado Giaquinto’s The Rape of Europa, and David Teniers II’s Smoker. Works in the American art collection conserved with funds provided by the American Arts Society support group included Ralph Albert Blakelock’s Old New York, Robert Henri’s Street Corner, and George Inness’s Sunset in Georgia. Depending on what was required to complete the necessary conservation, some work was done with specialty conservators on-site, while other work was outsourced to private studios.

COLLECTION PARTNERSHIPS Layton Art Collection The Layton Art Collection, Inc., is the legacy of the Layton Art Gallery, founded in 1888 by civic leader Frederick Layton. The Layton Art Gallery was the first purpose-built, public art gallery in the city of Milwaukee; later, it also operated a successful art school. In 1957, the Layton Art Gallery closed its location near Cathedral Square and moved the Layton collection, together with the Milwaukee Art Institute, into the newly constructed War Memorial Center, which was founded as an art center and a war memorial. In subsequent decades, the Layton Art Collection, in partnership with the now Milwaukee Art Museum, has continued to acquire works of art for the benefit of the residents of and visitors to Milwaukee. The Layton Art Collection maintains a separate Board of Trustees, which has placed the collection on loan to the Museum since 1957.

The Chipstone Foundation The Chipstone Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Fox Point, Wisconsin. Milwaukee collectors Stanley and Polly Mariner Stone founded Chipstone in 1965 with the mission to collect early American decorative arts and promote scholarship in the field. The foundation’s holdings of early American furniture, historical prints, and British pottery continue to be creatively displayed and interpreted within the Museum’s Collection Galleries. Chipstone was an integral collaborator with the Museum’s Curatorial Department in planning the reinstallation of the renovated decorative arts galleries. Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and SC Johnson Company With SC Johnson’s acquisition of the well-known but rare Ausgeführte Bauten und Entwürfe (The Wasmuth Portfolio), the Museum again assisted this important community partner to create the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright and the Wasmuth Portfolio (1910)—the fourth in SC Johnson’s Frank Lloyd Wright Gallery. The Wasmuth Portfolio, printed in Germany by the notable architectural publisher Ernst Wasmuth, widely disseminated Wright’s drawings and led to his work becoming an integral part in the international movement toward modern architecture.

BAKER/ROWLAND GALLERIES Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums Oct 2, 2014–Jan 4, 2015 Organized by the American Federation of Arts and Glasgow Museums. Coordinated at the Museum by Tanya Paul, Isabel and Alfred Bader Curator of European Art.

Highlights included important works by Sandro Botticelli, Domenichino, Antiveduto Gramatica, Francesco Guardi, Antonio Mancini, Salvator Rosa, and Titian. Milwaukee was the only Midwest stop on the tour of this rare exhibition. Of Heaven and Earth provided an exquisite and culturally complex view of the visual arts in Italy, and offered an extraordinary opportunity to see the riches of Glasgow’s outstanding collection. Supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. Exhibition tour supported by the JFM Foundation and Mrs. Donald M. Cox. In-kind support provided by Barbara and Richard S. Lane and Christie’s.

Coordinated at the Museum by guest curator Camille Morgan. Inspiring Beauty is the first exhibition to explore the Ebony Fashion Fair and its director-producer Eunice W. Johnson through its fifty years of traveling worldwide, including to Milwaukee. Visitors experienced stunning gowns and oneof-a-kind ensembles by haute couture designers such as Christian Dior, Patrick Kelly, and Vivienne Westwood.

innovation, and power as it re-created the pioneering fashion fair that helped redefine beauty, style, and empowerment for African American women everywhere.

Drawn from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s exceptional collection of twentieth-century art, Modern Rebels provided a cohesive and stunning survey of modern art. The sixty-eight artists represented in the exhibition challenged convention and pushed the limits of what art was, provoking a rebellion against the past and invention of the new.

education + public programs

While the Museum was undergoing its transformation in fiscal year 2015, staff in the Education Department were creatively engaging audiences of all ages both onand off-site: launching courses online, taking programs on the road, and activating the Quadracci Pavilion. Families, schools, and adults were among the 233,757 participants served through education programs. The Museum’s feature exhibitions provided opportunities to offer a range of programs, including a classical musical series and opera performances (Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums), film screenings and a Trivia Night with Milwaukee’s favorite trivia master Paul Kennedy (Van Gogh to Pollock: Modern Rebels), as well as lectures, gallery talks, and express talks, which had a total attendance of 11,500. The Ebony Fashion Fair Reunion, held with The Links, Cream City (WI) Chapter, rocked Windhover Hall with seven hundred partygoers reliving the glamour of the

fashion extravaganzas re-created in Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair and strutting the runway with commentator Deborah Kimble-Crosslin. As part of the Arts@Large Our Ebony Project, students from Rufus King International Middle School interviewed models, designers, and people who had attended the fair. And two hundred middle school students learned about the fashion industry at Fashion Matters: Designing Culture and Confidence, which the Museum organized with First Stage Children’s Theater and Mount Mary University. The Museum’s ArtPacks and Family Guides for feature exhibitions, sponsored by Four-Four Foundation and an anonymous donor, reached 20,991 participants, exceeding the goal of 16,000. The Kohl’s Art Generation program remained strong, despite the lab and gallery being closed during construction. The studio was moved to the Quadracci Pavilion and open every day for families. A highlight was a community quilt project, in which visitors created quilt squares that were then used to make thirty-one quilts


and beyond. An active group of participants shared their assignments on social media (in multiple languages!) using #hangoutwithart. The Museum’s volunteer docents were especially creative, flexible, and dedicated this year, giving tours to over 28,005 school and adult visitors using only the Museum’s architecture and feature exhibitions as their tour material. Behind the scenes, staff prepared for the reopening of the Collection Galleries in fiscal year 2016. They developed audio guides for the Collection, refreshed the iPod Touch Tour, created Closer Look gallery cards focused on single works of art, worked on three new education galleries, and trained a new class of docents.

for Penfield Children’s Center. Windhover Hall buzzed with activity during five Family Sundays events. Kohl’s Color Wheels—the mobile pop-up studio—traveled to 116 off-site events, and the gallery, lab, and iPod Touch Tour were all translated into experiences that were available online. There were 113,252 on-site participants and 116,071 off-site participants, exceeding the goal by 38 percent. The Museum’s first MOOC (massive open online course) Hang Out with Art went live on February 10, 2015, after extensive development and testing with students from Alverno College, docents, and teens from Milwaukee and Mexico City. Instead of a chronological experience of art through the ages, participants made personal connections with works of art and connected art to careers such as medicine and community activism. Over six hundred people registered from throughout the U.S., Europe,

every gift counts

The accomplishments of fiscal year 2015 were made possible thanks to the Museum’s generous donors. All gifts, large and small, are critical to the Museum and its ability to present consistently outstanding exhibitions, leading educational programs, and a world-class Collection of more than 30,000 works. The Museum operates without a sufficient endowment and is not eligible for support from federated fund drives such as UPAF or United Way. The Museum’s fundraising successes reflect the region’s commitment to a world-class art museum for Milwaukee. ANNUAL FUND

A key area of support continues to be the Annual Fund, which is the single largest source of funding for Museum operations. More than 19,000 supporters contributed a total of $4,649,721 to the fund this fiscal year. Led by Development Committee Chair Wendy Blumenthal, a dedicated group of trustees and a committee of volunteers once again produced a successful annual campaign. MEMBERSHIP

Despite the Museum’s Collection Galleries being off view, Members continued to support their Museum in fiscal year 2015, with 18,694 active Member households representing over 30,000 Members. The Museum is proud to have such a committed group of supporters whose participation and generosity made the transformation of the Museum possible. Comprising nearly 30 percent of the Museum’s annual attendance in 2014–15, Members took full advantage of their most valuable benefit, free and unlimited admission to the Museum. Members continued to enjoy previews of the feature exhibitions, as well as discounts on purchases in the Museum Store and Café Calatrava, and on classes, special events such as Lakefront Festival of Art and Beauty in Bloom, and parking passes. Members were invited to a number of unique, exclusive opportunities throughout the year. In October, new Members were introduced to their Museum during a welcome event, with Director Dan Keegan giving a presentation on the reinstallation plans. Members also enjoyed free admission to area museums throughout January and May. Participating museums included Betty Brinn Children’s

Museum, Charles Allis Art Museum, Grohmann Museum, Harley-Davidson Museum®, Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Milwaukee Public Museum, Pabst Mansion Museum, and Villa Terrace Art Museums. During May, Member appreciation month at the Museum, Members were treated to deeper discounts in the Museum Store and at Café Calatrava, and a lecture series with Barbara Brown Lee. Museum Members took part in a number of trips this year, including a fashionfilled day trip to Chicago with the guest curator of the Inspiring Beauty exhibition, Camille Morgan. Members viewed Dandy Lion: (Re)Articulating Black Masculine Identity at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, explored the fashion vault at Columbia College, and viewed Chicago Styled: Fashioning the Magnificent Mile at the Chicago History Museum. The Museum deeply appreciates its Members for their support, advocacy, and commitment. SUPPORT GROUPS

Membership also affords Members the opportunity to join any of the nine support groups, all of which are busy throughout the year with activities related to a specific interest area within the Museum’s Collection. More than four hundred Members are involved in support groups. African American Art Alliance (founded 1990) supports educational programs centering on African American art and artists, promotes volunteer involvement in the Museum, and is dedicated to raising funds for purchasing African American art for the Museum’s Collection. American Arts Society (founded 1993) celebrates American art, antiques, and architecture from the colonial era into the twentieth century through educational programs, trips, exhibitions, and conservation efforts. The Collectors’ Corner (founded 1948) is committed to developing educational programs that promote knowledge and important scholarship in the decorative arts.

PRESIDENT’S CIRCLE

Fine Arts Society (founded 1987) is a group of Europeanart enthusiasts that sponsors and supports related programs, exhibitions, and acquisitions by the Museum. Friends of Art (founded 1957) is the Museum’s largest volunteer support group. Hundreds of volunteers work to present FOA events, such as Lakefront Festival of Art, that engage the community, expand the Museum’s audience, and generate funds to support exhibitions at the Museum and the acquisition of artworks for its Collection. Garden Club (founded 1921) is the largest member club of the Wisconsin Garden Club Federation. The club supports the Museum through the annual Art in Bloom event and other activities. Photography Council (founded 1988) is devoted to the Museum’s photography collection and exhibition program and allows Museum Members with an interest in the art and history of photography to enrich their knowledge of the medium through an annual program of special events. Print Forum (founded 1980) unites Museum Members with an interest in prints and drawings from the Renaissance to today. It sponsors exhibitions, lectures, and seminars and provides support for the acquisition of prints, drawings, and artists’ books for the Museum’s Collection. The Museum is very fortunate to have such longstanding, supportive Members. Their generosity directly affects the breadth and depth of the Museum’s programs, including acquisitions, exhibitions, lectures, and special events, keeping the Museum vibrant. For this, the Museum is deeply grateful. 38

The Museum’s leading supporters are its President’s Circle Members—individuals, families, and businesses that contribute $2,500 or more to the Annual Fund. In 2014–15, 274 President’s Circle Members gave $2.6 million. Members place high value on enriching one’s family, social, and work life through creativity and exposure to alternate ways of seeing the world, and they participated in the Museum’s programs as avidly as they supported them. They attended the President’s Circle Preview for each feature exhibition, among other receptions and parties. This year also saw the rollout of a new level of membership, Benefactor Plus, providing donors with another level of giving. Everyone, in the Museum and the community, benefits from the tremendous generosity of the President’s Circle Members. This group helps ensure that the Museum continues to thrive for generations to come.

SPONSORSHIP SUPPORT

The generous contributions and sponsorship of foundations, corporations, and individuals are vital to the Museum’s ability to maintain the caliber of its exhibitions, education programs, and public events. Sponsorship not only provides much-needed support, but also builds visibility and awareness of the sponsor’s brand, affords business-building opportunities, and offers memorable hospitality experiences for clients and employees. Again this year, the Museum received strong sponsorship support. Thanks to funding from Kohl’s Cares, the Museum continued to offer families engaging, hands-on programming designed just for them, with the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio open every day during the Museum’s reinstallation. Target Free First Thursday was, again, invaluable in opening the Museum’s doors to those who might not otherwise visit. The Museum was also one of the recipients of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s centennial celebration gifts, which offered free admission to all visitors for a weekend in February. The support of area businesses, foundations, and philanthropists helped the Museum present the traveling exhibitions Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums, Inspiring Beauty:


50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair, and Van Gogh to Pollock: Modern Rebels, Masterworks from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Popular events such as MAM After Dark, Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays, Beauty in Bloom, and the Lakefront Festival of Art were again all made possible for thousands of Museum visitors to enjoy thanks to the commitment of generous sponsors.

THE PLAN FOR THE FUTURE CAMPAIGN

The Museum continued to successfully raise funds for its Plan for the Future capital campaign, reaching 98 percent of its goal by the end of fiscal year 2015. The plan calls for making repairs and renovations to the oldest part of the Museum’s campus, the County-owned buildings that house the Museum’s Collection, and upgrading the Museum’s facilities to improve the visitor experience. The Plan for the Future is bold, but necessary, as it aims to ensure that the Museum remains an extraordinary institution, able to serve and inspire the generations to come.

LEGACY SOCIETY

More than 125 Museum supporters have promised gifts through their estate plans. Using wills, trusts, insurance, retirement plans, or other assets, planned giving donors receive valuable tax advantages while providing support that benefits Museum visitors for generations to come. Most monies received will build the Museum’s endowment fund, which generated only 10 percent of the annual operating budget in fiscal year 2015, trailing most comparable U.S. art museums. Members of the Legacy Society enjoy many program and event benefits and have the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping an institution continue to inspire all ages through art, in perpetuity. For information on the Legacy Society, request the Museum’s Planned Giving Brochure from the director of individual and planned giving at 414-224-3248.

Among the improvements slated for completion in November 2015: • New lakeside entrance, with direct access to parking • Galleries that are brighter and easier to navigate • A dedicated photography and new media area • More places to rest, refresh, and socialize, including a new lakeside coffee shop • Restrooms on every floor

The Collection Galleries were closed for this entire fiscal year for renovation, which of course brought with it many challenges, but Museum donors remained supportive. The promise to, in the not too distant future, experience the Museum’s world-class Collection in fresh and inspiring ways in updated, thoughtfully designed galleries and with forward-looking perspectives and user-friendly technologies kept people excited about the future of the Museum amid the upheavals of construction.

financial report Financially, the Milwaukee Art Museum concluded fiscal year 2015 with a balanced budget and a strong balance sheet, with no debt as of August 31, 2015. Net assets are approximately $149 million as of year-end. The following are among the highlights of the 2015 operating year: • The Museum Store, Café Calatrava, and facility rentals saw continued success; all contributed a gross profit of almost $2.2 million, slightly down from the previous year. • Goals for the annual campaign and membership were met and approximated the same level of giving as the prior year. • The Museum was able to fund all the renovation costs through the fiscal year due to the generosity of donors.

60

The investment portfolio experienced flat performance in fiscal year 2015. The total market value of investments was $42.5 million in 2015, compared to $51.3 million in 2014. The major reason for the decrease was that funds were spent on the renovation and reinstallation of the Collection Galleries. The Museum’s ability to raise and earn revenues sufficient to cover operating expenses will continue to be a challenge in the years ahead. As the Museum plans for its future, successfully accomplishing its goals will depend on continuing to expand the visitor experience, grow its Member and donor base, and build a larger endowment. The Museum has identified several planned gifts that will help build the endowment in the years ahead.
