BOARD OF TRUSTEES
campus expanded, financial reporting became more transparent, and Marcelle Polednik was brought on as the Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director.
For my first annual report letter as President of the Board of Trustees of the Milwaukee Art Museum, I am pleased, on behalf of the board, to share that the twelve months covered by this report (September 1, 2017–August 31, 2018) were marked by great success. As I look at fiscal year 2018 and everything that was accomplished— financially, artistically, and programmatically—the foundation is strong as the Museum continues its work toward defining a strategic direction for the years ahead. I thank Don Layden Jr. for his service as President during this time. Under his remarkable leadership, the Museum
This past year, the Museum welcomed over 350,000 people for inspiration, education, programs, and special events, setting the stage for our plans to build broader and deeper audience engagement across the community and region. The array of exhibitions and programs the Museum offered helped establish strategies around making the most of the placement and timing of such offerings, and around building our audiences moving forward.
revenue, and the generosity of donors, foundations, and partners. I heartily thank those who have championed and contributed to this success, in the organization and the community. Thank you for the part you play in making Milwaukee’s remarkable icon possible, in fiscal year 2018 and for the years ahead.
Joel Quadracci President, Board of Trustees
The Museum also officially expanded its campus, adding Museum Center Park. The property effectively connects the institution to downtown Milwaukee and opens up a variety of possibilities for visitor parking, amenities, programming, and long-term investment in the Museum. The success of the year further came from the responsible use of resources, strong earned
Director’s Report this space was but one in a triumvirate of spaces that featured exhibitions brought together in conversation under signature artistic seasons, such as the season of travel.
Dear Donors, Members, and Friends of the Museum: Fiscal year 2018 was a pivotal year. We refined our artistic vision and brought renewed focus to audience engagement, and we began the hard work of examining who we are as an institution. We are well placed to undertake the ambitious strategic planning process in fiscal year 2019, which will lay the foundation for the Museum’s future: in exhibitions, programming, community engagement, and communications. We led with art. From the masterworks in the exhibition Degas to Picasso to the contemporary multimedia work in William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance, we brought to the Baker/Rowland Galleries experiences that captivated visitors. But
We activated the Museum’s Collection. Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England centered on the Layton Art Collection painting Hark! The Lark, housed at the Museum. Daring Technique: Goya and the Art of Etching showcased a rarely seen, complete set of Goya’s etchings from the Museum’s extensive holdings of works on paper. Through these projects, we explored our spaces and collections anew and learned how we might better reach diverse audiences, approach the questions that drive research, and talk about all that we have to offer. Fiscal year 2018 helped us better understand where we excel and where we can do better. Our education programs have always been strong. And the publication of the book Look, Write, See, written by the Museum docents, and the Museum Moments cards for children to age five, remind us that the Museum is a source of original scholarship across
all departments. These innovative and fun-filled offerings use the entire Museum as a learning lab, connecting our expertise, space, and Collection in ways that provide a pathway for engaging all ages. This year we also added two new experts to our leadership team, Mark Zimmerman as Deputy Director and Alissa Karl as CFO, both of whom will bring their experience and perspective to our operations as we plan for the future. I extend my sincere gratitude to all the staff, volunteers, docents, trustees, visitors, partners, and community members that made this fiscal year one we can be proud of. It was an important year for the Museum for recognizing our potential, and I am eager to see the excellent work continue toward shaping Milwaukee’s Art Museum. Thank you,
Marcelle Polednik, PhD Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director

Curatorial Report The Museum and the Curatorial Department carried forward ambitious exhibitions and acquisition activities in fiscal year 2018. In March 2018, the Milwaukee Art Museum received a major endowment from the Herzfeld Foundation in support of the Museum’s photography program. This gift provides for the position of the Herzfeld Curator of Photography and Media Arts at the Museum in perpetuity, which is held by Lisa Sutcliffe. Acquisition activity for fiscal year 2018 included significant gifts and incisive purchases. Highlights are featured below.
ACQUISITION AND COLLECTION HIGHLIGHTS American Art The Museum’s great collection of works by artists associated with the Ashcan Circle and the Eight, founded by Donald B. and Barbara G. Abert and continued by their daughter Barbara Abert Tooman, grew this year thanks to David G. and Judith A. Meissner’s donation of five works on paper. This donation adds to previous gifts and includes two drawings by William Glackens, one drawing each by George Luks and John Sloan, and a print by Robert Henri’s student and biographer Margery Austen Ryerson. The American art collection continued to benefit most of all from the promised gift of the collection of Kevin Fahey and Ray Grzebielski of Chicago. Active and devoted Museum Members, Fahey and Grzebielski have amassed a significant print collection that focuses on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and crosses geographical and technical boundaries. In fiscal year 2018, they donated thirty-three prints to
the Museum, most of them from the nineteenth century and many of them by European artists or of European subjects; in addition to three works each by Jules Chéret and Charles Meryon, highlights include seven prints by Rockwell Kent and, perhaps most important, twenty-one prints by James Abbot McNeill Whistler, six of them from his famed Thames Set and one previously in the collection of England’s Queen Victoria. Selections from the gift went on view in the American art galleries in late 2018 and continue through summer 2019.

20th- and 21st-Century Design The Museum’s design collection continued to grow through acquisitions and gifts in several areas of modern and contemporary design. Graphic design was significantly developed through a gift of one hundred works, representing forty-one projects by the Dutch group Experimental Jetset, and a gift of twenty-six posters by Wisconsin-based artist John Rieben, whose work was on view as part of the exhibition How Posters Work. The Afrikando series of glass vessels that the Museum commissioned from the artist-designer Jaime Hayon entered the collection after first being unveiled in the exhibition Jaime Hayon: Technicolor. Several new acquisitions will debut in the fiscal year 2019 exhibition Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America, including, all for Herman Miller Furniture Company, three textiles designed by Alexander Girard and a Marshmallow sofa (1956) designed by Irving Harper of George Nelson Associates. Many impressive historic acquisitions were made in fiscal year 2018, including a basket (ca. 1905) that Josef Hoffmann designed for Wiener Werkstätte, a Usonian exhibition dining chair (1953) by Frank Lloyd Wright, and a prototype

pen rest and letter holder (1946) that László Moholy-Nagy designed for Wisconsin’s Parker Pen—the only surviving design object by Moholy-Nagy to come to auction. European Art The Museum’s European art collection grew through the gift from Wayne and Christine Lueders of a jewel-like work by the underrecognized British artist Arthur Hacker. The late, experimental panel Wooded Glade (ca. 1918) reveals the degree to which Hacker, an exhibiting member of London’s Royal Academy, departed from his traditional compositions to explore a more modern, improvisational side of his practice. The intimate panel is one of a pair—the other work, Oxeye Daisies and Irises (ca. 1918), is promised to the Museum at a later date. This acquisition reflects the European art department’s ongoing initiative to expand the canon of artists
represented in the collection, exploring artists and art schools less widely known. In this way, the profile of the Museum’s European art collection, which already includes areas less widely represented in traditional American museum collections, such as the René von Schleinitz Collection, will continue to broaden and deepen. Finally, the conservation, reframing, and reattribution of a painting in the Layton Collection, which was not displayed for many years prior due to its long-doubted attribution to John Constable, resulted in the rediscovery of a painting by the French Barbizon painter Théodore Rousseau. Lost to scholarship since 1879, this painting is not only a major rediscovery but also, in effect, a new addition to the European art collection housed here at the Museum.

Folk and Self-Taught Art The folk and self-taught art collection grew this year through acquisitions building on existing strengths. Highlights include Edgar Tolson’s King Herod and the Feeding of the Christians to the Lions (1971), acquired from Julie Hall. Tolson, considered one of the most important American self-taught artists of the twentieth century, is represented in the Museum’s collection by The Fall of Man (1969) and other works from the Michael and Julie Hall Collection of American Folk Art. Four works by Milwaukee artist Rosemary Ollison, including a large leather quilt titled Me, Myself, and I: A Puzzle of a Million Pieces (2017) and three drawings, are the first by the artist to enter the Museum’s collection. Ollison’s quilt further adds to the Museum’s small but significant collection of quilts from the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. Modern and Contemporary Art The Museum’s contemporary art collection was strengthened this year through significant contributions in support of acquisitions. Rashid Johnson created Untitled Anxious Audience (2017) on the occasion of the Museum’s exhibition Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy (June 23–Sept 17, 2017); the work is the first of his to enter the collection. Tyree Guyton’s Old Soldiers Never Die (1990), from his outdoor art environment in Detroit called The Heidelberg Project, was generously donated to the Museum by the Stephen Kohl Art Foundation. The Museum’s Contemporary Art Society’s Art Auction raised funds for the acquisition of Olafur Eliasson’s Rainbow Bridge (2017). Eliasson’s complex art practice incorporates aesthetics,
C U R ATO R I A L R E P O RT
science, and ecology. Rainbow Bridge explores light, vision, and movement and is only wholly perceivable when one moves around the sculpture, thus calling attention to the ways in which we interpret the world. Photography Over the past year, the photography department has focused on diversifying the histories and narratives within the collection, adding pictures by the early American photojournalist Frances Benjamin Johnston, African American abstract artist Howardena Doreen Pindell, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya, whose collaged images consider homoerotic visual culture. The Museum continued to build a record of its photography exhibitions through gifts and purchases. Examples include the important photograph Pictures for Rome #17 (1999) by Anthony Hernandez, purchased with funds from the Herzfeld Foundation; Larry Sultan’s Mom in Curtain (1991), a gift from the estate of the artist; and a wonderful group of H. H. Bennett photographs of the Wisconsin Dells, gifted by George and Julia Evans. Finally, the Photography Council commissioned Alessandra Sanguinetti to continue the series she began in Black River Falls, Wisconsin, for the 2014 exhibition Postcards from America, resulting in the addition of five lovely pictures. Prints and Drawings The Museum’s prints and drawings collection benefitted from a number of important gifts this year. Chicagoans Kevin Fahey and Ray Grzebielski continued to donate works from their collection, adding significant prints to the Museum’s holdings of French and American works on paper. Nineteenth-century etchings by French artists Félix-Hilaire Buhot, Charles
Meryon, and Adolphe Martial Potémont entered the collection through the DASS Fund, strengthening the Museum’s collection of inventive prints created during the etching revival. Richard Gallun and Judith McGregor enhanced the Museum’s European modern and contemporary art holdings by donating prints by German artists Georg Baselitz and Max Liebermann, as well as French artists Jean Dubuffet and Auguste Herbin. Purchases of an etching by Francisco de Goya and two prints by Édouard Manet contributed to the Daring Technique: Goya and the Art of Etching exhibition. The Museum also purchased etching portfolios by Albert Besnard and Jules Ferdinand Jacquemart, which provide the opportunity to showcase each artist’s technical achievements and imaginative visualizations of a particular theme. Finally, acquisitions of works by Max Kurzweil and Philipp Otto Runge added depth to the Museum’s collection of German Romantic prints.
MUSEUM LIBRARY/ARCHIVES The Museum’s Research Center opened in its new location, in the historic Judge Jason Downer mansion on Prospect Avenue, in the summer of 2018 to serve the research needs of Museum staff, docents, students, teachers, and scholars. Through generous support from the Alice and Lucia Stern Library Fund, the Demmer Charitable Trust, the international catalogue exchange program, and numerous private donations, the research center added important resources to its library collections, including the two-volume set John Sloan’s Oil Paintings: A Catalogue Raisonne, Narrating the Landscape: Print Culture
and American Expansion in the Nineteenth Century, Théodore Rousseau: 1812–1867: Catalogue Raisonne de L’Oeuvre Peint, the Eames Furniture Sourcebook, and New Realities: Photography in the 19th Century, among others. In addition, several rare books were acquired, including two catalogues by Frank Caplan for the groundbreaking educational toy store Creative Playthings (1967 and an issue from the early 1950s) and two key issues of the important graphic design magazine Émigré Fallout #30 (1994) and Émigré: First Things First #51 (1999).

Progress continued on the conservation of earlier European paintings this year thanks to the Fine Arts Society and individual donors. Philadelphia paintings conservator Mark Bockrath performed treatments in the Museum’s Conservation Lab on Portrait of a Young Woman (ca. 1520), attributed to Lorenzo Lotto, and View on the Outskirts of Granville (1831–32), recently identified as an oil study by Théodore Rousseau (previously attributed to John Constable).
The Layton Art Collection
Staff conservators treated over fifty prints from the Museum’s Collection, including six by Francisco de Goya for the exhibition Daring Technique: Goya and the Art of Etching. Over the first half of 2018, several hundred objects were conserved or prepared for exhibition for the fiscal year 2019 fall opening of Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America. In addition, staff prepared over six hundred artworks for exhibitions, rotations, and loan to other institutions. They also completed condition inspections and the fabrication of storage folders for more than five hundred works by French artist Jules Chéret entering the Collection through the James and Susee Wiechmann gift.
The Museum was delighted to continue its decades-long collaboration with the Layton Art Collection Inc. In addition to the Layton Collection’s significant holdings of decorative arts, paintings, and sculpture on view in the Museum’s Collection Galleries for numerous visitors to experience, several works were also lent to both international and national exhibitions, introducing new audiences to the collection and advancing art historical scholarship. This year, two of the Layton Collection’s most treasured artworks were the focus of important Museum-organized exhibitions: Winslow Homer’s Hark! The Lark (1882) was the subject of Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England, an exhibition that explored the critical influence that British culture had on the artist; and Extraordinary Elegance: Nathan Lumbard’s Desk-and-Bookcase (1800–02). This exhibition highlighted new findings and research on the Layton Collection’s rare and unique Lumbard cabinet and was accompanied by programming funded by the Layton Collection.
Lastly, a project to digitize paper conservation reports and images began with the completion of scanning and transferring documents for all artworks in the Bradley Collection to the Museum’s collections database.

Degas to Picasso: Creating Modernism in France Nov 4, 2017–Jan 28, 2018 Expanded upon an exhibition by the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford. Curated by Britany Salsbury, associate curator of prints and drawings.
Presenting Sponsor: Milwaukee Art Museum’s Friends of Art Supporting Sponsor: Katharine and Sanford Mallin
Degas to Picasso: Creating Modernism in France showcased works by Édouard Manet, Eugène Delacroix, Paul Cézanne, Mary Cassatt, and others as it traced the development of modern art in nineteenth-century Paris. The exhibition represented transformative movements such as Impressionism and Cubism in 150 paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures. It focused especially on works on paper, highlighting the different ways that modern artists used drawings and prints and the crucial role these media played in their artistic practices.
Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England March 1–May 20, 2018 Co-organized with the Worcester Art Museum. Curated by Brandon Ruud, Milwaukee Art Museum Abert Family Curator of American Art, and Elizabeth Athens, former curator, Worcester Art Museum.

Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England explored—for the first time in a major museum exhibition—the pivotal period of nearly two years, in 1881 and 1882, that American artist Winslow Homer (1836–1910) lived and worked in the remote northern English fishing village of Cullercoats. Homer’s decision to abandon the American art world at the height of his fame for an isolated English hamlet dramatically altered the artist’s life and art. This exhibition featured the most comprehensive group of oil paintings to emerge from Homer’s time abroad, as well as drawings and prints, all of which bear the mark of the influences he encountered there and highlight the hardships and joys of life along the waterfront.
Program Sponsor: American Arts Society
William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance June 22–Aug 19, 2018 Curated by Margaret Andera, interim chief curator and curator of contemporary art.
Presenting Sponsor: Milwaukee Art Museum’s Contemporary Art Society Supporting Sponsor: Milwaukee Art Museum’s Friends of Art
William Kentridge: More Sweetly Play the Dance was an immersive, multisensory experience from the famed South African artist (b. 1955). Combining drawing, filmmaking, and animation with a spirited soundtrack, the monumental work ran the length of the galleries, engaging visitors in a brass band–led danse macabre (or medieval “dance of death”) that spoke to issues around life, mortality, migration, and displacement. The installation featured the eight-channel projection and sculptural components, including school chairs and large megaphones through which part of the soundtrack was played. The exhibition marked the first time that the Baker/Rowland Galleries were devoted to a single work of art.

Supporting Sponsors: Layden Family Foundation and Milwaukee Art Museum’s Garden Club Education Sponsor: Suzy B. Ettinger Foundation Hospitality Partner: StandEatDrink Hospitality Group
Jaime Hayon: Technicolor allowed visitors to enter the Spanish artist-designer’s vibrant world and find inspiration in his embrace of imagination. The exhibition featured colorful and whimsical sculptures, ceramics, textiles, and playground equipment by the artist (b. 1974), who is at the forefront of an energetic new wave in contemporary design. The exhibition also premiered the new series Afrikando, seven glass works that the Museum commissioned.

Presenting Sponsor: In Memory of Jean Friedlander, the Friedlander Family Supporting Sponsor: Milwaukee Art Museum’s Print Forum
Daring Technique: Goya and the Art of Etching presented the thirty-three drama-filled prints of the Spanish painter’s 1816 series Tauromaquia (Bullfighting), which represents the history of the popular Spanish pastime. The series reflects the inventive style and printmaking techniques that set Francisco de Goya (1746–1828) apart from his contemporaries, and a complete first edition set is a highlight of the Museum’s collection. The exhibition presented the series with other prints from the Museum’s holdings, demonstrating the influences on and of Goya’s daring approach to etching and his lasting passion for his native country.

Sponsored by: Herzfeld Foundation and David C. & Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts Exhibition Sponsors: Herzfeld Foundation and Madeleine and David Lubar
This first retrospective on the major photographer Anthony Hernandez (b. 1947), a Los Angeles native, featured approximately 120 photographs—many never shown before—from the artist’s more than forty-five-year career. The exhibition included blackand-white photographs of downtown L.A. from the early 1970s; color pictures of Rodeo Drive from the mid-1980s; selections from the critically acclaimed series Landscapes for the Homeless, completed in 1991; and the museum debut of Hernandez’s most recent series, Against LA, all of which capture the desolate allure and sprawling expanses of the artist’s hometown.
The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip Jan 26–April 22, 2018 Organized by Aperture Foundation, New York, and curated by David Campany and Denise Wolff. Coordinated at the Museum by Ariel Pate, assistant curator of photography.
Presenting Sponsor: Johnson Financial Group Supported in part by an award by the National Endowment for the Arts Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts Exhibition Sponsors: Herzfeld Foundation and Madeleine and David Lubar Media Sponsor: 88.9 Radio Milwaukee
The Open Road was the first exhibition to consider the American photographic road trip as a genre in and of itself. The exhibition tracked the journeys of eighteen photographers for whom the American road was muse. Shown in chronological order, from the 1950s to today, the photographs featured America’s changing landscape from its highways and byways; they showed the evolution of American car culture and reflected the artists’ explorations of place, time, and self. Highlights included Robert Frank’s black-and-white photographs from his 1955 road trip; seminal color work from William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, and Joel Sternfeld; and series from contemporary photographers Alec Soth and Swiss artist duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs.

Morley Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts Exhibition Sponsors: Herzfeld Foundation and Madeleine and David Lubar Organized, in part, from the collection of the American Geographical Society Library, University of Wisconsin– Milwaukee
Photographing Nature’s Cathedrals presented American landscape photographs by three nineteenth-century artists who used mammoth-plate prints, panoramas, and stereographs—the cuttingedge photographic technology of their time—to capture the natural wonders of the country. The photographs featured had helped create the myth of the Edenic American West, attracted tourists to the unusual formations in the Dells region of Wisconsin, and inspired the creation of Yosemite National Park. The exhibition was complemented by a recent gift of vernacular photography from Peter Cohen and a display of Ho-Chunk objects in Mrs. M.—’s Cabinet organized by the Chipstone Foundation and Kendra Greendeer, collections manager at the Little Eagle Arts Foundation.

Epic and Intimate presented prints by seventeenth-century artists such as Jacques Callot, Claude Lorrain, Claude Mellan, and Simon Vouet, who experimented with etching and engraving during a period when printmaking proliferated in France. The nearly fifty works featured, from the collection that local collector Ethel K.

Curated by Britany Salsbury, associate curator of prints and drawings. Designing Paris celebrated the gift of nearly six hundred posters by Jules Chéret (1836–1932) to the Museum from local collectors James and Susee Wiechmann. It featured a selection of the French artist’s colorful posters, advertising Paris’s many entertainment venues, products, and department stores, and highlighted how Chéret transformed printmaking into a medium that artists today still see as rich for experimentation.

This catalogue, produced in conjunction with the exhibition of the same title, explores the pivotal months in 1881 and 1882 that the canonical American artist Winslow Homer (1836–1910) spent in England. Its essays challenge accepted notions of Homer’s artistic development during and after this period, demonstrating how he wrestled with his creative identity.
This publication is a supplement to the catalogue Degas to Picasso: Creating Modernism in France that the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford, published. The supplement was produced to accompany the Milwaukee Art Museum’s expanded presentation of the Ashmolean’s exhibition. Britany Salsbury’s introductory essay explains the scope of the expanded exhibition, which broadened the original survey, and highlights key works. The supplement contains an illustrated entry for each additional drawing, painting, and print.

Look, Write, See includes twenty writing activities that challenge students to tell stories, analyze details, and enter new and unfamiliar worlds through the close observation of works of art. Borne out of the National Writing Project and grounded in the Six Traits of Writing, the activities are paired with art from the Museum’s Collection but are written so they can be used wherever there is art. Appropriate for students in grade 4 and up, the book can be used by parents and guardians, as well as teachers.

Education and Public Programs The Milwaukee Art Museum is a laboratory for learning and offers leading programs, from art making to panel discussions, designed to provide visitors with opportunities for deeper engagement with the Museum, the art, the world. In fiscal year 2018, the Museum extended its reach to a broader audience with the publishing of the book Look, Write, See: Activities for Teaching Writing and Looking at Art. This new resource continues the Museum’s commitment to innovative writing and art programs, such as the annual Art of Writing conference and its work with SHARP Literacy Inc. The Museum also expanded many of its education and public program offerings across all age groups, but this report highlights how it is introducing its youngest visitors to art. Thanks to Four-Four Foundation and an anonymous donor, not only did families continue to enjoy the activity-filled Family Guides for the exhibitions and the Reading with Art books, SketchPacks, and ArtPacks available in the Collection Galleries, but also the Museum was able to increase the number of programs for children to age five. Museum Moments activity cards, for example, developed with the early learning experts at Vroom, were newly added this year. Vroom designs its activities to excite young brains. The activities help infants, toddlers, and preschoolers experience art with their caregivers in the galleries, and are paired with explanations about the science behind them. Stroller Tours were also added. The monthly tours help caregivers with young children feel more comfortable at the Museum and provide thirty minutes of discovery, from testing the acoustics to looking at the art from a different vantage point. Following the Stroller Tours is Play Date with Art, which is held in Windhover
E D U C AT I O N A N D P U B L I C P R O G R A M S
Hall. Each Play Date has a theme that inspires the drop-in art activity and the songs of Singing Time. The play area is often activated, with, for example, “roads” for cardboard cars or objects to explore textures. The goal is to encourage developmental skills and inspire kids and grownups alike to think like artists.

Open every day with different hands-on art projects, the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio was enhanced to include a toddler corner. And this summer, the Museum welcomed the onemillionth child to participate in programming made possible through Kohl’s Cares since the start of the grant, in 2008. Three national awards were received this fiscal year. The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards awarded the Gold Key for Excellence in the Field to the Museum. Amy Kirschke, director of adult, docent, and school programs, was awarded the 2018 Western Region Museum Education Art Educator Award, an award given by the National Art Education Association and selected by one’s peers throughout the United States and abroad. And Kantara Souffrant was named the Creativity Connects Milwaukee Artist Fellow. The two-week fellowship is awarded as part of the National Endowment for the Arts Creativity Connects Grant, which provides time and space for an artist to create new work for children or about the experiences of childhood. Art museums are places to look, talk, imagine, learn, and wonder—no matter your age. Thanks to dedicated, award-winning staff and a corps of volunteer docents, the Museum was able to continue its work with school students, teachers, teens, and adult visitors, while turning a special eye to its youngest visitors in 2018.
Development The Museum’s donors are critical to the annual presentation of world-class exhibitions, offerings of leading educational programs, and care of an outstanding Collection of more than 30,000 works of art, as well as to maintaining day-today operations and the facilities. Donors continued their generous support in fiscal year 2018, contributing, too, to the growth of the Museum’s endowment. The Museum concluded 2017–18 with $59.8 million in its endowment, an amount that is small for a museum of its size and scope. Every Gift Counts Even though the Museum’s endowment continues to grow, gifts large and small are needed, as the Museum is not eligible for support from fund drives such as UPAF or United Way. Museum fundraising success reflects the community’s pride in and commitment to having an art museum in Milwaukee that serves the community and has regional, national, and international connections.
Annual Fund The Annual Fund remains the largest source of annual funding for Museum operations. More than 22,000 supporters contributed $5.3 million in 2017–18. Led by Development Committee Chair Wendy Blumenthal, a dedicated group of trustees and a committee of volunteers in partnership with Museum staff upheld the tradition of producing a successful annual campaign. Membership The Museum is grateful to have loyal Members whose active participation and generosity are fundamental to the Museum. Members are one of the major drivers of the Museum’s programming, education initiatives, and exhibitions, which offer memorable experiences for all visitors. In fiscal year 2018, membership grew to 21,670 Member households. The Museum deeply thanks its Members for their support, advocacy, and commitment.
DEVELOPMENT AND MEMBERSHIP
Comprising 35 percent of the Museum’s annual attendance, Members took advantage of their most valuable benefit: free Museum admission. They enjoyed free access to the Museum’s comprehensive schedule of lectures, tours, and educational programs and MAM After Dark, in addition to a host of exclusive Member-only events and privileges throughout the year. Members saw the three exhibitions in the Baker/ Rowland Galleries first, before they opened to the public, during the Member Preview Celebrations. Members at the Art Advocate level and above had the opportunity to tour exhibitions with the curators and socialize during eight Member Drink & Think events. These Members were also invited to sign up for several day trips throughout the year, including a trip with curator Ariel Pate to the Wisconsin Dells to visit the H. H. Bennett Museum and Studio and for an old-fashioned boat tour of the landscape that inspired Bennett’s photography, which was on view in the Museum’s exhibition Photographing Nature’s Cathedrals. All Members were invited to take part in exclusive themed Collection tours: a “spooky” tour in October and a “naughty bits” tour in February, among others. In May, during the annual Member-appreciation month, Museum Members were extended extra discounts in the Museum Store and cafés; free admission for an additional guest; and free general admission to six Milwaukee-area museums on the popular Member Swap Day. With continued support from Nordstrom, the Museum’s Family Access membership initiative saw growth in 2017–18. For $20 a year, the Family Access membership provides families utilizing WIC (Wisconsin Infants and Children), BadgerCare, FoodShare, and Medicaid all the

benefits of the Family level membership, including free admission for two adults and children age 17 and under for one year. By the end of the fiscal year, more than 400 families were Members, bringing the number of families that had signed up since its launch in May 2016 to 631. 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. Contemporary Art Society (founded 1982) promotes the appreciation of contemporary art through the sponsorship of programs that bring renowned artists, critics, and curators to the Museum; by supporting acquisitions; and by sponsoring exhibitions of contemporary art at the Museum.
Fine Arts Society (founded 1987) is a group of European-art 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.
President’s Circle 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. Everyone, in the Museum and the community, benefits from the tremendous generosity of the President’s Circle Members. In 2017–18, nearly 300 President’s Circle Members gave $2.7 million and participated in the Museum’s programs as avidly as they supported them. Among the special receptions and events that they attended were the President’s Circle Preview Celebrations. 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 for education and the arts within the community, but also increases the visibility and awareness of a brand, affords business-building opportunities, and offers memorable hospitality experiences for clients and employees.
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 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.
DEVELOPMENT AND MEMBERSHIP
The Museum again this year received strong sponsorship support. Meijer continued its sponsorship of Free First Thursdays, opening the doors of the Museum without the admission fee, resulting in a high visitation by visitors of all ages and demographics. Thanks to ongoing funding from Kohl’s Cares, the Museum provided families engaging, hands-on programming designed just for them through the Kohl’s Art Generation program—in the Kohl’s Art Generation Studio, Lab, and Gallery, as well as at the Kohl’s Color Wheels van, a mobile creation station that visited area festivals and schools throughout the year. One look at the exhibitions presented this past fiscal year (see page 16), reveals how invaluable the support of area businesses, foundations, and philanthropists is to providing a strong artistic program and social experiences that are broad in scope. Popular events such as MAM after Dark, Yoga @ the Museum, Art in Bloom, and Lakefront Festival of Art brought thousands of engaged visitors to the Museum’s campus thanks to the commitment and support of generous sponsors.
DEVELOPMENT AND MEMBERSHIP
Legacy Society More than 140 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 from planned gifts build the Museum’s endowment fund, which is critical for maintaining the quality of programming that the community has come to expect from its art museum. The current endowment generated only 9 percent of the annual operating budget, trailing comparably sized US 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.

Financial Report Financially, the Milwaukee Art Museum and its subsidiary concluded fiscal year 2018 with a balanced budget and a strong balance sheet. Museum Center Park (MCP), the subsidiary, was formed during fiscal year 2018 to support the operations, maintenance, and repair of Museum structures. The Museum and MCP have construction lines of credit related to the reinstallation project and parking renovations with a combined balance of $1.8 million at the end of fiscal year 2018. Net assets are approximately $158 million as of year-end. The following are among the highlights of the 2018 operating year: •
The Museum Store, the three cafés, and facility rentals continued to grow; all contributed a gross profit of almost $3.4 million, exceeding the prior year.
Admissions revenue continued to climb, and with the addition of MCP, the parking income increased from the prior year.
Goals for the annual campaign and membership were met, and the level of giving supported 48% of the Museum’s 2018 fiscal budget.
The total market value of investments was $53.1 million at the end of fiscal year 2018, compared to $50.5 million as of 2017. An uptick in fund contributions and gains in the investment portfolio account for the increase.
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.

Museum Center Park “With this strategic acquisition, we are able to ensure that our campus is maintained, accessible to the public, and remains directly connected to downtown. We also open up possibilities for the future, envisioning how we can facilitate more activities, programs, and opportunities for inspiring community engagement.” — Marcelle Polednik, PhD, Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director, Milwaukee Art Museum
As of December 19, 2017, the Museum expanded its campus, assuming full ownership from Milwaukee County of the O’Donnell parking facility, located west of the Museum on Lincoln Memorial Drive. The Museum has since made extensive progress in upgrading operations and addressing capital maintenance. The property’s facilities manager and assistant manager work on-site, along with representatives from Interstate parking. Security features and a state-of-theart parking system were added and electrical, plumbing, and other infrastructure upgrades were made to support the rebranding of the O’Donnell facility to Museum Center Park (MCP), planned for the summer of 2019. The net proceeds from parking support a capital reserve fund dedicated to the repair and maintenance of the MCP facility, as well as the three buildings that make up the Milwaukee Art Museum proper. The portion of the Saarinen building that the Museum occupies and the Kahler building are part of a condominium relationship with the War Memorial Center and Milwaukee County. The County retains ownership of the land.
A rundown of the details: •
Following the cleaning and minor repairs completed during the early months of ownership, several projects were completed over the past twelve months: the main chiller was replaced; a building automation control system was installed; the fire alarm and security systems were upgraded and interfaced with the Museum’s security operations; interior and exterior lighting was repaired; the exterior light posts, balcony, and perimeter fencing were repainted; and spalled concrete was replaced. The project to upgrade and modernize the facility’s elevators will begin in November 2018. And a new signage and wayfinding system developed by the Museum’s design team is scheduled for installation in spring 2019.
The Milwaukee Art Museum is the leaseholder for Coast (Zilli Hospitality Group) and Betty Brinn Children’s Museum.
Under the terms of the agreement, the War Memorial has ownership of the sections of the Saarinen building that it occupies.
The Milwaukee Art Museum currently receives $1.1 million in funding annually from the County through 2023, expected to lower to $500,000 per year through 2033.
