President’s Report

The President’s Report customarily begins with a general statement, on behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Milwaukee Art Museum, about the institution’s financial position at the end of the fiscal year. Had life with COVID-19 not happened, the twelve months covered by this report (September 1, 2019–August 31, 2020) would have had the Museum in a position of fiscal strength, debt free and with a healthy operating reserve. Unfortunately, COVID-19 did happen, and as this report makes plain, the pandemic significantly affected Museum operations and, in turn, its fiscal position. We have a long road of recovery ahead. Yet despite the pandemic, the Museum did reach several important milestones, many of which were established in real time as circumstances changed. Marcelle Polednik’s Director’s Report and the Year in Review cover these successes, which align with the objectives of the Strategic Direction. I am pleased to share that the necessary renovation work throughout the Quadracci Pavilion that began at the start of the year was able to continue and was completed. The marble floors in Windhover Hall and the wood floors in the Baker/Rowland Galleries were refinished, and one of the hydraulic cylinders that helps operate the Burke Brise Soleil (“wings”) was repaired. You could say that one unexpected upside to the Museum closing was that work went on without disrupting the visitor experience. But I say this in jest. These maintenance projects were made

possible thanks to Donna and Donald Baumgartner and the Windhover Foundation. Staff, suddenly working from home, were also little inconvenienced by the work being done throughout the building. The Information Systems Department made the staff’s transition to their new working situation as seamless as possible, providing the tools, upgrades, and other resources needed to access files remotely, attend meetings virtually, and otherwise conduct work. Lastly, the tireless efforts of the finance team were instrumental in the Museum securing Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding through the CARES Act. This early lifeline made it possible for the Museum to keep all of its staff on payroll for an extended period. While later furloughs were unavoidable, doing what it could for staff was an immediate priority of the Museum’s. We can all take great pride in how every corner of the Museum community rallied together and kept art and each other in focus. My heartfelt thank you to you all.

Director’s Report

Dear Donors, Members, and Friends of the Museum: The Museum entered fiscal year 2020 with a keen eye to the future. The board approved a new Strategic Direction, the institution was on solid financial footing, and the Museum had organized several exciting exhibitions. The Democratic National Convention was coming in July, and the Museum, along with the rest of Milwaukee, was preparing to welcome the thousands of additional visitors expected. Then March arrived, and the virus we had been hearing about since January was here. The twelve months of this fiscal year tell a tale of two realities, with the latter six months unmistakably overshadowing the first. As such, the pandemic looms large throughout these pages: the Museum had fewer acquisitions, all on-site events and programs were canceled, and many exhibitions were delayed by months if not years. Each time we had to change our plans due to new circumstances, I was reminded of a quote from Winston Churchill: “It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead. The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time.” As an institution, we pivoted and persevered. The Year in Review provides a snapshot of our successes. And as civil unrest highlighted for us all the need to recommit to the Strategic Direction and its central emphasis on the needs of our community, we doubled down on moving forward with the work outlined therein.

It seems impossible to overstate the personal impacts that the pandemic has had on each one of us. The Museum worked hard to support the safety and well-being of its staff, many of whom worked from home while also caring for children and loved ones. Staff experienced many changes throughout the year, including performing jobs virtually, adopting new procedures for working on-site, dealing with furloughs, deciding whether to unionize, and taking on new responsibilities during a time of economic hardship for the Museum. The past year has altered our lives in countless ways, and I am incredibly proud of our staff, trustees, docents, and volunteers for ensuring our visitors had continuous opportunities to connect with art and each other regardless of the circumstances. And I am immensely grateful to our Members, donors, partners, and community members for their commitment to art and the Museum and the vital role they play in our Milwaukee community.

Thank you,

Marcelle Polednik, PhD Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director

The Year in Review

Fiscal year 2020 was unlike any other. The COVID-19 pandemic derailed life across the world. Stay-at-home orders were implemented, the wearing of masks was mandated, and many businesses were shuttered for long periods, if not permanently. Millions of people died. Civil unrest, in response to the killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Joel Acevedo, among too many others, at the hands of police, brought renewed attention to another public health crisis: systemic racism. “Normal” life as the world understood it would not soon return—and, indeed, we knew that it shouldn’t, that change needed to happen. The Milwaukee Art Museum, put to the test like never before, pivoted. Milwaukee’s art museum had to not only help keep its visitors and staff safe from an invisible virus, but also address the inequalities in its own house and its relationship with the community. Fortunately, the Museum already had a guide, a Strategic Direction the Board of Trustees had just approved in October 2019 that mandated a commitment to the community—to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion—and to ensuring that everyone feels welcome and can see themselves at the Museum. A summary of this year we will not soon forget follows. left Face coverings became part of the Museum’s safety protocols amid COVID-19 to help support a safe and healthy environment for both visitors and staff. above MKE Unite invited hundreds of Milwaukeans to gather at the Museum to chalk messages of unity and support for Black Lives Matter.

Strategic Direction

The Strategic Direction was born out of more than a year of Museum staff, board members, and volunteers asking the hard questions, consulting with peer institutions and local communities, and studying today’s evolving landscape to shape a framework for the Museum moving forward. The finding: Not everyone feels welcome at the Museum. The Museum determined that it needs to be more intentional in how it invites and welcomes the residents of the city, the region, and the world. A quote by the Trappist monk Thomas Merton was a beacon throughout this process: “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” The Museum has always collected and shared art with the people of Milwaukee. But it now committed to taking bold steps to further extend its welcome mat, presenting art as a way for all individuals to better understand themselves, each other, and our world. It would reach a diverse audience across Milwaukee and beyond, meeting people where they are and offering various access points for engagement with the Museum. The charge: Place community at the center of all we do. To accomplish the vision laid out for the future in the Strategic Direction, the Museum will leverage its history, build on its strengths, and implement the following strategic pillars: •

Art Relevant to Our Community

Robust Community Programming

Expansive Hospitality

Impact Aligned with Financial Strength and Discipline

Almost immediately upon the adoption of the Strategic Direction, the search for a Curator of Community Dialogue, who would lead the Museum’s community engagement initiatives and strengthen local relationships, was set underway. But this was just the beginning. A Community Task Force, with members from philanthropic, corporate, religious, civic, and community organizations throughout Milwaukee, was formed to help ensure a continued dialogue and the establishment of more authentic, intentional, and committed partnerships. The Museum also started work on developing an overall diversity plan for staff, volunteers, board members, and all others engaged with the Museum. Regular diversity-training sessions were implemented and staff were called on to prepare their own DEAI (diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion) goals.

14


The Museum’s artistic program was also reimagined, implementing the Museum Acquisition, Integration, and Activation Plan (MAIA) to streamline communications around objects in the collection, as well as a mandate to foreground underrepresented artists across history, including women and people of color. The Listening Lab was developed as an integral part of this effort. The lab, a destination embedded within the Museum galleries, was a physical site (later moved to online amid COVID-19) of exchange between visitors and the Museum’s curatorial and marketing teams. The lab allows the Museum team to test ideas related to collection presentation and interpretation and get feedback from visitors about their efficacy, the level of interest, and what alternatives or iterations are most compelling. Behind the scenes, in support of all these efforts, the Museum launched a Knowledge Management Infrastructure (KMI) project in 2019 to increase its capacity to make art information more relevant and accessible to the public. In partnership with the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Museum invested significant resources in conducting peer research and a thorough audit of our data-management processes and organizational structures. An internal cross-department team totaling nine workgroups led the process. Important discoveries made during the initial phase of the project fueled the Museum’s Strategic Direction and laid the groundwork for an action plan to establish a robust knowledge-management culture within and beyond our walls.

The Pivot to Online

“Prepare for a global health emergency” was not among the four pillars the Museum established in its Strategic Direction. But the situation did prove the Museum’s ability to be responsive and nimble during rapidly changing times. Shortly after closing the Museum for the first time, on March 15, we increased from monthly to semimonthly the Member email newsletter Member Insights, launched in February, to ensure Members remained informed, especially about all the new content available on the website. Staff quickly worked to keep visitors, families, and its Members engaged with art and connected to their Museum by developing at-home studio activities and creating interactive 360-degree gallery tours. The Member magazine went entirely digital, and programs were transitioned to online. Even the popular, large-scale community-gathering events Art in Bloom and Lakefront Festival of Art held in April and June, respectively, were celebrated online; each had its own robust webpage, complete with virtual workshops, shopping opportunities, and more. From March 15 to August 31, 2020, more than 145,000 people went online to take part in these digital offerings, and the Museum was featured in Forbes, in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and on FOX 6 Milwaukee, among other media outlets, for its prompt rollout of its mam.org/athome page. Education staff became instant video producers, transitioning Story Time in the Galleries, Play Date with Art, Kohl’s Family Sundays, and Kohl’s Studio activities to online. The Museum Moments activities designed to stimulate the growing brain of children ages 5 and under were expanded and made available for download and in Spanish. And because not everyone has access to what they need to participate in the art-making activities being offered, the Museum provided art kits to partners such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, Imagine MKE, and Walker’s Point Center for the Arts for distribution to area families. The Satellite Teen Interns, from fifteen different schools, spent three of their four months in the program gathered on Zoom, creating robust content for the Museum’s first Virtual Teen Night. Their presentations were later shared on the Museum’s social media channels, bringing fresh—young!— voices to works of art in the collection. The curators launched series on the blog and social media to ensure continued connection to the works in the collection. The Collection Reflection video series on the blog examined the still-life across genres, mediums, and time periods. On social media were two weekly series: Collection Rotation, an associative tour through the collection inspired by the game cadavre exquis, or exquisite corpse, and AAAA, which marked the thirtieth anniversary of the African American Art Alliance support group by highlighting important works and events the group made possible. Resources were also immediately directed toward bringing the experience of visiting the galleries and exhibitions themselves online. The 19th-Century European Academic Paintings and 18th-

Century French galleries; The Bauhaus, László Moholy-Nagy, and Milwaukee rotation; and Byrdcliffe: Creativity and Creation exhibition were all made available through interactive, 360-degree tours. Providing resources for teachers thrust into a new world of online teaching became a high priority. The Museum’s Look, Write, See book, for example, which uses works in the collection to inspire writing, was made available for free on the Museum’s teacher resources website. And the Junior Docent School Program had its first online graduation in June, with students from St. Robert School presenting their works of art and aesthetic responses virtually. This was quite a different experience from the one captured at the start of the fiscal year in a PBS Arts Page special about the Junior Docent School Program, which followed students from ALBA elementary school through their graduation—in the galleries. The Museum’s 150 volunteer docents were also determined to carry on. Working closely with staff, they focused on using their time at home to increase their knowledge of art and to begin preparing for the different student body they will welcome back to the Museum post-pandemic. The takeaway: The pandemic fast-tracked the Museum’s efforts to have a more robust digital presence, and even once on-site activities are able to resume, these efforts will continue.

The Museum Reopens

“I wasn't prepared for the tears. . . . And I was grateful that the guards and staff who witnessed my puddles in every room were gracious and kind.”

“The Milwaukee Art Museum did a fantastic job opening up to the public the last few weeks. I felt safe, protected, and entertained.”

The Museum reopened to the public on July 16, 2020. The protocols the Museum spent three months preparing were first put to the test during a four-day trial period, July 9–12. Staff, Members, volunteers, and others were invited to visit and provide feedback on their experience. A Reopening Task Force of twenty-one staff members, in partnership with the Senior Leadership Team and board, had led the charge of planning exactly what a museum open in the time of COVID-19 would look like. Following the guidelines and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the task force developed a Return to Work Playbook for staff and a Code of Conduct for visitors, and otherwise tried to anticipate every need to help promote a safe and healthy environment for everyone amid a pandemic.

20


“The intentionality and quality of each level of experience (e.g., signage to staff communication) was excellent. . . . With a medically complex child, this opened an avenue for being in the community together that we haven't had for months. I can't say thank you enough.”

“The visit brought joy to my day that I am most thankful for. Saw parts of the Collection I have never really spent time with. . . . Thank for the work and planning to make this happen.”

Over 23,000 individuals visited the Museum from July 16 through November 18, 2020 (this span includes a few months of fiscal year 2021 to account for the entire time the Museum was first open). One Member, similar to the other visitors who are quoted here, referred to the Museum’s reopening as a “miracle” for her and her family. Reopening was divided into phases. For the first month, admission to the Museum was free for all, thanks to the incredibly generous support of The Krei Family in Memory of Melinda. The Museum was open only Thursday through Sunday and ticketing moved online, allowing for touchless transactions and the ability to monitor capacity within the Museum’s significantly smaller footprint: only the first floor of the collection galleries was open, with a dedicated pathway. A number of objects from other galleries in the Museum were interwoven into the first floor, including visitor favorites from the Bradley Collection of Modern Art, prints, drawings, and photographs. The Baker/Rowland Galleries and the Museum Store in the Quadracci Pavilion remained closed, though the store had a small pop-up location within Windhover Hall. Deep cleaning, hand-sanitizing stations, new tap-and-pull bathroom door handles, and face coverings were among the new protocols. The Code of Conduct was an “I agree to remember the basics” to help protect everyone in our community—wear a mask, sanitize my hands, mind the signs—that all visitors had to agree to before advancing to purchase their tickets. Signage reminded visitors to keep a safe social distance and to be kind. The Museum’s proactive COVID-19 safety protocols were successful. There were no reported occurrences of a positive infection by staff nor by visitors as a result of working or visiting our campus.

21


“The staff were wonderful, and it was just lovely to have [a] day of semi normalcy in these challenging times.”

The Connection That Art Provides Amid this unprecedented year, marked by isolation, disruption, uncertainty, and, yes, fear, art helped keep us all human—and connected. Art students from Zion Lutheran School chalked everyone’s favorite dog and one of the most beloved pieces at the Museum, Sunny #4, on sidewalks, bringing a smile to their communities and passersby. And in the summer, the Museum was honored when MKE Unite and hundreds of Milwaukeans gathered at the Museum and filled Art Museum Drive with messages of unity and support for Black Lives Matter and the racial reckoning sweeping the world (see page 13). Fiscal year 2020 was a reminder that art is important, and we are so grateful to our donors and our community for their flexibility and continued support.

Produced to accompany the exhibition of the same name, which will open at the Museum (owing to COVID-19–related rescheduling) in 2023, this catalogue shows how Nordic ideas about modern design and the objects themselves had an indelible impact on American culture and material life, while also considering America’s influence on Scandinavian design. America’s little-known “Viking Revival” style and the work of Howard Smith, an African American artist who immigrated to Finland in the 1960s, are among the topics that accompany familiar material such as Danish furniture and Swedish glass.

Donors

Individual supporters, foundations, corporations, and organizations, including the Museum’s nine support groups, are critical to the Museum and its ability to share art and transformative experiences with the community; a pandemic makes the importance of these relationships especially clear. The membership and donor communities annually support the presentation of world-class exhibitions, offerings of leading educational programs, and care of an outstanding collection of more than 32,000 works of art, as well as the maintenance of campus facilities. This year, their generosity, a reflection of a deep commitment to art and our Milwaukee community, was vital in helping the Museum navigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the cancellation of all on-site events and a four-month closure.

Thank you. Those that supported the Museum in 2019–20 as Members, annual fund donors, or sponsors of exhibitions and public and education programs made it possible for hundreds of thousands of people to connect with art and each other, both on-site and online. The following list recognizes those supporters who provided unrestricted and restricted support of $400 or more during the 2020 fiscal year (September 1, 2019–August 31, 2020).

above Visitors enjoyed free admission for one month, thanks to a generous donation from The Krei Family, in memory of Melinda.

PUBLIC FUNDING SOURCES The State of Wisconsin supported the Milwaukee Art Museum and its teen programs in 2020 through a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts, and through a Joint Effort Marketing (JEM) grant from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. The Museum’s teen programs were also supported in part with grants from the Milwaukee Public School Partnership for the Arts and Humanities and the Milwaukee Arts Board. Milwaukee County continues to support the Museum’s programs and its managing of the Saarinen and Kahler facilities on behalf of the County. Lastly, the exhibition A Modern Vision: European Masterworks from The Phillips Collection was supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

Financial Report

The consolidated financial statements of the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM) and its subsidiary, Museum Center Park (MCP), ended fiscal year 2020 with combined net assets of approximately $167 million. At year-end, the total market value of investments was $60.4 million, compared to $57.8 million as of 2019. The majority of the market value increase was in returns on investment. MCP had a debt balance of $2.3 million as of August 31, 2020. This year began in a position of fiscal strength: MAM was debt free and had a $1.2 million operating reserve. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, several key cost-saving measures were taken to secure the financial stability of the institution. On March 15, for example, when the Museum closed to the public, a hiring freeze of all open positions took effect. The prolonged Museum closure, however, significantly affected Museum operations. Losses from earned income such as admission, events, and retail, which support approximately 30% of the Museum’s annual operating budget, were estimated to be $10,000 per day. Contributed revenue, which supports 50% of the annual operating budget, was also down dramatically due to the closure and cancellation of exhibitions and programs. Membership renewals declined as well, mainly because many Members join or renew on-site at the Museum.

84

The Museum was awarded Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding through the CARES Act, which made it possible to continue paying all staff. But beginning June 7, 37% of Museum employees were placed on temporary furlough. Looking forward to fiscal year 2021, the Museum is working on developing a balanced budget, albeit scaled back, while continually striving to align its impact with financial strength and discipline, as described in the Strategic Direction.
