special events. Over 490,000 people of all ages engaged with art-related programs hosted by the organization on- and off-site. Whether inside the Museum or within the community, reaching a wide variety of audiences is core to the institution’s mission.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Milwaukee Art Museum, I am pleased to share that the twelve months covered by this report (September 1, 2016–August 31, 2017) was a period of strength in the financial, artistic, and audience realms for the organization.

Staff: Marcelle Polednik Public Affairs Committee Christine Symchych Chair Wendy Blumenthal Randy Bryant Angela Colbert H. Carl Mueller Andy Nunemaker

With a balanced budget and broad audience involvement, the organization focused on not only making the year successful, but also laying the foundation for success in the years to come.

Staff: Marcelle Polednik, Praveen Krishnamurti

First and foremost, the strength of the Milwaukee Art Museum is measured in inspiration and impact. Over 335,000 visitors came into the Museum during fiscal year 2017 to experience the exhibitions, Collection, and




Museum Members continue to be our most passionate supporters. The year closed with nearly 21,000 Member households and remarkable generosity from donors at all levels. Both their support and their involvement are essential. The achievements of fiscal year 2017 were made possible by this generosity, combined with growth in the endowment and stable performance in earned revenue.

A strong foundation in financial performance and a solid, supportive community will create new opportunities in the exhibitions the Museum can bring in, the programs and special events it can host, and the new audiences it can reach. The board is gratified by the strength of this fiscal year and eager to see the Milwaukee Art Museum leverage this as a foundation for greater achievements ahead. Thank you for the role you played this year.

Donald W. Layden Jr. President, Board of Trustees

These financial results reveal how critical a broad spectrum of income is for the future of the Museum. Growing attendance, the endowment, and earned revenue must remain the institution’s focus in order to achieve its mission and support its financial goals.


Director’s Report

Dear Donors, Members, and Friends of the Museum: Fiscal year 2017 was my first full year as the Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director of the Milwaukee Art Museum. I have incredible pride when I review everything that we accomplished in 2016–17. The Museum I joined came with huge potential, fresh from the reinstallation and with new spaces and possibilities for exhibitions. We have effectively redirected our focus and implemented processes that make the most of all the exhibition spaces. The artistic program brought a broad perspective with a strong vision; it used the best of our curatorial talents and provided fresh opportunities for visitors to explore across the whole Museum.




Established relationships and the forging of new ones were instrumental to the development of this year’s exhibitions. We examined the scope of local collections in Milwaukee Collects, joined the state in honoring a Wisconsin icon with Frank Lloyd Wright: Buildings for the Prairie, and looked anew at our neighbors through the project of a Milwaukee artist in Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive. Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy welcomed the celebrated contemporary artist and his work to our city. From photography to folk and self-taught art, all areas of the Museum Collection were broadened and deepened through careful acquisitions. How Posters Work and Rineke Dijkstra: Rehearsals led to notable purchases. Acquisitions such as Arthur A. Carrara’s Magnet Master 400 were made with an eye to future projects; in this case, the exhibition Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America opening in fiscal year 2019. And significant gifts from our donors, including the promised gift from local collectors Jim and Susee Wiechmann

of more than five hundred works by French artist Jules Chéret, continue to strengthen our holdings. The Museum I joined was already an icon of local pride on the Milwaukee skyline. We are a gathering place and involved local communities in a variety of ways: from live storytelling with Ex Fabula to performances by gospel choirs and jazz groups. Further, visitors coming from Chicago and its suburbs demonstrate our ability to become a stronger regional art destination. Fiscal year 2017 was successful in its own right, but it also prepared us for success on the journey ahead. Thank you to the staff, donors, Members, families, school groups, visitors, and artists who made this year possible and who helped lay the groundwork for the future of this Museum. Thank you,

Marcelle Polednik, PhD Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director

Curatorial Report exhibition, other rarely seen American works were presented in Nature and Opulence: The Art of Martin Johnson Heade and Milwaukee Collects. Perhaps most notable, the inaugural Annual Layton Art Collection Focus Exhibition, Eastman Johnson and a Nation Divided, united in conversation two masterpieces by the artist, the New-York Historical Society’s Negro Life at the South (1859) and Layton’s The Old Stagecoach (1871), and explored each painting’s historical and social contexts.

An ambitious exhibition schedule and significant acquisitions to the Museum Collection marked this fiscal year. In January, local collectors Jim and Susee Wiechmann announced the promised gift of more than five hundred works by French artist Jules Chéret. The Jim and Susee Wiechmann Collection is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind, featuring not only posters but also prints and drawings. It encompasses the full range of Chéret’s output from throughout his long career, including posters for performances, publications, and products; designs for book covers and menus; charcoal figure drawings; maquettes for his graphic designs; and original pastel compositions. Due to its scope and scale, this collection establishes the Museum as an international center for the study of late-nineteenth-century French posters.

School of Design, where she was the Andrew W. Mellon curatorial fellow in the Prints, Drawings, and Photographs department.

Coinciding with the promised gift by Jim and Susee Wiechmann, the Museum welcomed Britany Salsbury to the curatorial team as associate curator of prints and drawings. Britany came from the Museum of Art, Rhode Island

American Art


In January 2017, the Museum lost one of its most inspired collectors and supporters. Barbara Abert Tooman was a great benefactor of the Museum, a talented designer and musician, and a lover of art and horses. She inherited her passion for art from her parents, Donald B. and Barbara G. Abert, who developed the Museum’s significant collection of works by the Ashcan School and the Eight, and she herself made important contributions to this collection. Most recently, she made an incredible gift to the Museum’s American art department, endowing the curatorial position. ACQUISITION AND COLLECTION HIGHLIGHTS In addition to the Museum’s rich art and archival collections of Prairie School material highlighted in the Frank Lloyd Wright: Buildings for the Prairie


The American art collection benefited most of all from the promised gift of the collection of Kevin Fahey and Ray Grzebielski of Chicago. Active and devoted Museum Members, Kevin and Ray have amassed a significant print collection that focuses on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and crosses geographical and technical boundaries. In fiscal year 2017, they donated thirty-one prints to the Museum as part of their initial pledge; in addition to twelve lithographs by Thomas Hart Benton, other highlights include four woodblocks by Gustav Baumann, four drypoints by Martin Lewis, and three works by George Tooker, none to this point represented in the collection. Selections from the gift will be the focus of a small exhibition in the winter of 2018. 20th- and 21st-Century Design The design collection was strengthened this year through acquisitions and gifts. Building upon the cultural heritage of Milwaukee, the Museum made several acquisitions related to modern German design, including a coffee service (ca. 1929) crafted by Christian Dell, an armchair (1931) designed by Erich Dieckmann, and an armchair (1923) made by Marcel Breuer while he was a student in the Bauhaus furniture workshop. Several American postwar design works, including Arthur Carrara’s Magnet Master toy sets (1947) and four tray table prototypes (ca. 1960)


designed by Alexander Girard with George Nelson & Associates, were purchased and will be displayed for the first time in the Museumorganized exhibition Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America, opening in September 2018. In addition to many other purchases, posters designed by Lois Ehlert (shown in the How Posters Work exhibition) and works of contemporary design, such as Jonathan Muecke’s coiled stool (2013) and two prototypes (1999, 2001) by Ali Tayar, were among the gifts to the collection. European Art Gifts to the European art collection this year included two important paintings from Myron Laskin Jr. One is attributed to sixteenth-century Italian artist Domenico Brusasorci and shows the dramatic moment just before the martyrdom of Saint Justina of Padua; the other is a scene of Italian ruins at sunset by eighteenth-century British painter Joseph Wright of Derby. In addition, Alice and James Nelson gave a lovely pair of portraits by the Danish painter Frederik Moller. Dated 1830, when portraits were popular among the upper middle class, the paintings are likely of a husband and wife and are lively with personality and filled with historical costume detail. Folk and Self-Taught Art A highlight in the folk and self-taught art collection was the gift of more than fifty American works given by nationally renowned collectors and longtime Museum patrons Orren (Brad) and Marilyn Bradley. Particularly noteworthy are the fifteen works by the celebrated Bailey’s Harbor woodcarver Albert Zahn included in the gift, all of which can be seen in the large installation of the artist’s work on the Mezzanine level of the Museum. Also included are works by Howard Finster, Mr. Imagination, Georgia Blizzard, and


Jesse Howard, as well as the first work to enter the collection by Wisconsin artist Norbert Kox. Photography Since the opening of the Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts in November of 2015, the focus for the Museum’s photography collection has been on building on existing strengths, filling in gaps, and complementing the center’s robust exhibition program. This year the Museum continued to build a record of its photography exhibitions by acquiring important photographs by Helen Levitt, Larry Sultan, and Penelope Umbrico. A diverse selection of historical and contemporary pictures by artists including David Goldblatt, Kenneth Josephson, and Mark Steinmetz were acquired, many with support from the Herzfeld Acquisition Fund, for The Lives of Others: Portraits from the Photography Collection exhibition. Gifts of note include a major donation of vernacular photographs from internationally renowned, New York–based collector Peter J. Cohen. Prints and Drawings The Museum’s prints and drawings collection received a number of important gifts from new and established donors alike this year. As previously mentioned, local collectors Jim and Susee Wiechmann promised a historic gift of more than five hundred posters, prints, and drawings by the French artist Jules Chéret, and Chicagoans Kevin Fahey and Ray Grzebielski promised the gift of their entire collection, contributing greatly to the Museum’s holdings of modern American and European prints. Through the DASS Fund, two etchings by the Venetian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo were added to the collection. Both works are part of the artist’s Scherzi di Fantasia series, made around 1740, which presents fantastical, dreamlike images that suggest Tiepolo’s creative approach to etching during that period. A group of modern and


contemporary prints and drawings by Dorothy Dehner, Kenneth Noland, and Varujan Boghosian was also given from the collection of Karen Wilkin. Together, this gift significantly supplemented the Museum’s holdings of postwar American works on paper. MUSEUM LIBRARY/ARCHIVES In preparation for the opening of the Milwaukee Art Museum Research Center in 2018, the George Peckham Miller Art Research Library, archives, and related special collections remained closed in fiscal year 2017, while continuing to acquire vital research resources. 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 library acquired Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs, the two-volume sets The Story of Eames Furniture and The Later Paintings and Drawings of John Constable, and the six-volume set Toulouse-Lautrec et son oeuvre, among others. In addition, the library acquired several rare books including Sixty Years of Living Architecture: The Work of Frank Lloyd Wright and the 1919 Les mots en liberté futuristes by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, the founder of the Futurist movement.

In addition, while on-site at the Museum, Bockrath inspected and submitted treatment proposals for another twenty paintings. Conservation staff prepared almost one thousand artworks for exhibitions, rotations, and loan to other institutions in fiscal year 2017. They also began planning for the condition inspection and storage of the more than five hundred works by French artist Jules Chéret entering the collection through the Jim and Susee Wiechmann gift. COLLECTION PARTNERSHIPS The Layton Art Collection

CONSERVATION Significant progress was made in the conservation of earlier European paintings this year thanks to the Fine Arts Society and individual member donors. Philadelphia paintings conservator Mark Bockrath performed treatments both in the Museum’s Conservation Lab and at his private studio on Cornelius Janssen van Ceulen’s The Countess of Exeter, Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller’s The Interruption, Johann Wilhelm Lindlar’s Waterfall in Norway, and Landscape with Cattle by Willem Roelofs.


The Museum was delighted to continue its decades-long collaboration with the Layton Art Collection Inc. The Layton Collection’s The Old Stagecoach (1871) was featured in the exhibition Eastman Johnson and a Nation Divided. The exhibition inaugurated a new series of focus exhibitions at the Museum that will highlight the Layton Art Collection, one of Milwaukee’s seminal collections of American and European art that Frederick Layton formed in the late nineteenth century. The yearly exhibition, together with related programming, will explore a significant


work from the Layton Art Collection, providing new insights and interpretations. SC Johnson Company The Museum again assisted important community partner SC Johnson Company in creating an exhibition for SC Johnson’s At Home with Frank Lloyd Wright gallery. SC Johnson presented On the Wright Trail in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Wisconsin native Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959). The exhibition not only coincided with the state’s observances of the architect’s birthday but also featured sites that are included in the new Frank Lloyd Wright Trail that Travel Wisconsin developed. The trail is an architectural journey across southern Wisconsin that begins at the SC Johnson Administration Building and includes Wright’s birthplace and home.




Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s Oct 21, 2016–Jan 22, 2017

Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy June 23–Sept 17, 2017

Organized by La Cinémathèque française, Paris, and curated by Laurent Mannoni, curator of exhibition. Coordinated at the Museum by Margaret Andera, adjunct curator of contemporary art.

Coordinated at the Museum by Margaret Andera, curator of contemporary art. Hail We Now Sing Joy presented new paintings and sculptures by acclaimed Chicago native Rashid Johnson. Using his signature materials of white ceramic tile, red oak flooring, shea butter, black soap, and wax, Johnson examines themes of race, history, yearning, anxiety, and escape and investigates the relationship between art, society, and personal identity. Antoine’s Organ, the largest of the artist’s architectural grid installations ever shown in the United States, concealed a piano that musicians performed at scheduled times. In total, fourteen of the artist’s large-scale works filled the Museum’s entire feature exhibition space; their impact was as monumental as their size.

Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s explored masterworks of German Expressionist cinema, from the stylized fantasy of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to the chilling murder mystery M. The installation featured production design drawings, photographs, posters, documents, equipment, and film clips from more than twenty films. The exhibition concluded with the contemporary three-channel projection work Kino Ektoplamsa, 2012, by filmmaker Guy Maddin, which was inspired by German Expressionist cinema.

How Posters Work March 31–June 25, 2017 Organized by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and curated by Ellen Lupton, senior curator of contemporary design. Coordinated at the Museum by Monica Obniski, Demmer Curator of 20th- and 21st-Century Design.

Curated by Margaret Andera, curator of contemporary art. New York and Amsterdam artist Lawrence Weiner visited Milwaukee in 2013 to familiarize himself with the Milwaukee Art Museum and to choose a site for his work. He focused on the Santiago Calatrava–designed Windhover Hall and, using scale models of the building, designed two installations for the Museum, which were presented in this special exhibition. Weiner challenges traditional notions concerning the processes and materials that constitute a work of art, employing language to invent another means of presenting sculpture.

Featuring more than eighty rarely seen posters from Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum’s permanent collection, alongside loans from the Merrill C. Berman collection, How Posters Work demonstrated how some of the world’s most creative designers employed and pushed the boundaries of two-dimensional design, harnessed the mechanics and psychology of perception, and mastered the art of storytelling to produce powerful forms of visual communication. The installation dissected design principles and their creative use by designers and underscored, too, the significance of the viewer in completing the design process.

Currents 37: LAWRENCE WEINER: INHERENT INNATE TENSION marked the first time in the Quadracci Pavilion’s history that the walls of Windhover Hall were used to present a work of art.

How Posters Work was complemented by a presentation of work by nationally recognized Wisconsin graphic designers, including posters by Lois Ehlert and John Rieben and catalogues by John J. Reiss.

Nature and Opulence: The Art of Martin Johnson Heade Nov 18, 2016–Feb 26, 2017

Additional support provided by: Milwaukee Art Museum’s Print Forum Education sponsor: Cargill

Organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and curated by Karen Quinn, senior historian/curator, Art and Culture at the New York State Museum. Coordinated at the Museum by Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art.

Frank Lloyd Wright: Buildings for the Prairie July 28–Oct 15, 2017 Curated by Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art.

Nature and Opulence: The Art of Martin Johnson Heade was the first major exhibition on the artist in nearly twenty years. Largely forgotten by scholars and collectors after his death, Martin Johnson Heade is now being revisited as one of the most varied and inventive painters of his generation. Heade was the only major American painter of the time to devote equal attention to landscape, marine, and still-life subjects. This exhibition, drawn exclusively from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the preeminent public collection of Heade’s work, showed the artist’s development from early portraits to his late still lifes and presented a retrospective overview of the extraordinary variety of his output.

In celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday, the Milwaukee Art Museum presented Frank Lloyd Wright: Buildings for the Prairie, which featured a selection of the famed architect’s designs from the Wasmuth Portfolio and examples of his drawings, furniture, and stained glass designs. Named for its German publisher, the Wasmuth Portfolio is considered the most significant collection of Wright’s early work, showcasing the breadth and beauty of his output. The portfolio lends insight into the master’s early development and affords the opportunity to see the evolution of the Prairie School of architecture.

Rineke Dijkstra: Rehearsals Sept 9, 2016–Jan 1, 2017

Helen Levitt: In the Street Jan 27–April 16, 2017

Curated by Lisa Sutcliffe, curator of photography and media arts.

Organized by the Telfair Museums and the High Museums, Savannah, Georgia. Coordinated at the Museum by Ariel Pate, assistant curator of photography.

Leading contemporary artist Rineke Dijkstra is internationally praised for her elegant and sensitive photographic and video work. Rineke Dijkstra: Rehearsals featured two of the Dutch artist’s large-scale video installations—portraits of young dancers during the precious years of early adolescence. Both videos are of intensive rehearsals in Russia and reveal complex layers of determination and fragility as the girls attempt to conceal their emotions and perfect their craft. Dijkstra seeks to capture her subjects as they begin to build their own identities and present themselves in the way they wish to be perceived.

Featuring the honest, humorous, and inventive works of prolific documentary photographer Helen Levitt (1913–2009), this exhibition included forty-seven photographs, a slide installation, and Levitt’s iconic film In the Street (1952). One of the best-known street photographers of the twentieth century, Levitt captured the life of New York City’s sidewalks for over five decades. The exhibition at the Museum was complemented by a selection of thirty-nine photographs from its collection by members of the New York Photo League, an organization active at the same time as Levitt.

The Lives of Others: Portraits from the Photography Collection Sept 9, 2016–Jan 1, 2017

James Nares: In the City Jan 27–April 16, 2017

Curated by Lisa Sutcliffe, curator of photography and media arts. Whether in formal studio portraits or pictures caught on the street, the human figure has been a popular subject for photographers throughout the history of the medium. This presentation of works from the Museum’s photography collection explored the interest many photographers have had in understanding how people present themselves to the world. The exhibition was organized thematically and included an important new acquisition, Rineke Dijkstra’s Almerisa (begun in 1994), an eleven-part series that follows the transition of a young Bosnian refugee as she adapts to life in the West and grows from a girl to a woman with her own child.

Curated by Lisa Sutcliffe, curator of photography and media arts. James Nares: In the City featured two video installations by contemporary artist James Nares (b. 1953), Street and Pendulum. Like photographer Helen Levitt, Nares draws inspiration from New York City in his work. A native of London who came to New York in 1974, Nares is preoccupied with movement, rhythm, and repetition. His hypnotic high-definition video Street captures city street life in continuous slow motion, and his Super 8 film Pendulum follows the arc of a concrete sphere as it swings in the deserted streets of Tribeca, celebrating the freedom of flight.

Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive

Ralston Crawford: Art Is for Every Day Sept 30, 2016–Jan 29, 2017

May 12–Aug 27, 2017 Curated by Lisa Sutcliffe, curator of photography and media arts.

Curated by Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art.

In 1997, Milwaukee artist Paul Druecke began going door to door asking local residents to contribute a snapshot of a “social occasion, public or private, current or historical” to his project A Social Event Archive. He acquired 731 photographs over ten years. This exhibition celebrated the Archive’s twentieth anniversary with an inaugural museum installation. Drawn from disparate family albums and shoeboxes, the photographs in the Archive—removed from their original context and stripped of any personal associations—suggest universal stories and a larger narrative about cultural modes of socializing.

From his early paintings of the Great Lakes to prints and photographs of funerary monuments in New Orleans, the full range of Ralston Crawford’s output was featured in this exhibition thanks to a recent major gift to the Museum from the artist’s son. Like the New Orleans jazz musicians who inspired him, Crawford frequently worked serially and experimented with a single theme—finding inspiration in his daily routine and reminding people that, in his words, “art is for every day.”

Eastman Johnson and a Nation Divided: The Annual Layton Art Collection Focus Exhibition Feb 10–May 21, 2017

Modern Folk June 9–Dec 10, 2017

Curated by Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art.

In the first half of the twentieth century, many artists retreated to the country. They went to escape from the city and for spiritual rejuvenation, but also to engage with the local architecture and art, characterized by simple and spare forms. Modern Folk explored this interest by America’s early modernists in the nation’s colloquial art through paintings, drawings, and prints from the Museum’s collection. Works by Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, and Max Weber were featured alongside the Museum’s rarely seen Shaker furniture.

Eastman Johnson and a Nation Divided united in conversation two masterpieces by American artist Eastman Johnson (1824–1906), Negro Life at the South (1859), from the New-York Historical Society Museum & Library, and The Old Stagecoach (1871), from the Layton Art Collection, at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The exhibition explored Johnson’s critical reception and each painting’s historical and social context. This exhibition inaugurated a new series of focus exhibitions that will highlight the Layton Art Collection, one of Milwaukee’s earliest, seminal collections of American and European paintings and sculpture that Frederick Layton formed in the late nineteenth century. The yearly exhibition, together with related programming, will explore in depth a significant work from the Layton Art Collection, providing new insights and interpretations.

2017 Scholastic Art Awards: Wisconsin Exhibition Feb 4–March 19, 2017


Gods and Heroes: Classical Mythology in European Prints Dec 2, 2016–April 2, 2017

Alluring Artifice: Mannerism in the Sixteenth Century April 7–July 30, 2017

Curated by Catherine Sawinski, assistant curator of European art.

Curated by Tanya Paul, Isabel and Alfred Bader Curator of European Art.

The compelling stories developed by the Greeks and Romans to explain the world around them have fascinated subsequent generations of artists. This exhibition of prints from the Renaissance through the early twentieth century explored how European artists interpreted and used these ancient narratives, and the characters that populate them, to experiment with style and composition, to create propagandistic images that promoted their patrons, and more.

Perhaps one of the most recognizable artistic styles, Mannerism is a movement that emerged in European art around 1510–20 and lasted until about 1600. It manifested itself differently in Italian and in Netherlandish art but is generally characterized by a focus on densely packed compositions and the human form, in images that are deliberately challenging in both design and technique. Alluring Artifice featured prints by the highly skilled and politically savvy Italian female engraver Diana Mantuana (ca. 1547– 1612); the Dutch artist Hendrick Goltzius (1558– 1617), who was renowned for his extraordinary virtuoso style; and numerous others represented in the Museum’s collection, who explored what, at the time, was a unique and dynamic new style.

The Temple of Flora Aug 4–Dec 10, 2017 Curated by Catherine Sawinski, assistant curator of European art.

The Milwaukee Art Museum has had the honor of hosting the Scholastic Art Awards for the Wisconsin region for over forty years. Since the first competition in 1976, students in grades 7–12 from across Wisconsin have annually submitted works to be judged by a panel of art educators, artists, and museum professionals. The competition culminated in an exhibition of the best works of Wisconsin’s most talented young artists. This year, more than three hundred artworks were selected from more than three thousand entries. Artwork was submitted in the categories of Architecture & Industrial Design, Ceramics & Glass, Comic Art, Design, Digital Art, Drawing & Illustration, Editorial Cartoon, Fashion, Film & Animation, Jewelry, Mixed Media, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, and Video Games, and as Art Portfolios.

This installation featured fifteen large-scale color prints in the Museum’s collection from doctor John Robert Thornton’s illustrated book The Temple of Flora (1812), reflecting Thornton’s abiding passion: botany. The plants pictured are dramatically rendered and set against romantic landscapes— as opposed to the plain backgrounds that were typical of botanical images at the time. The Temple of Flora’s engravings later inspired American artist Jim Dine (b. 1935), whose illustrated book from 1984 was also on display.


Wisconsin Women Artists Sept 15, 2016–ongoing Curated by Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art. The Museum partnered with the Milwaukee Public Library to present Wisconsin Women Artists, an exhibition of paintings on view in the Central Library Art Gallery. From cultural leaders to art educators and instructors, women played a pivotal role in the development of arts in the city of Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin. This selection of paintings by Wisconsin women artists spans more than one hundred years and highlights the breadth of their artistic contributions and output, from early realist landscapes and portraits to abstract and modernist canvases.

This catalogue, published on the occasion of the exhibition Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive, 1997–2007, provides art historical context for the Milwaukee artist’s work and presents various perspectives for interpreting the Archive. Exhibition curator Lisa Sutcliffe’s essay introduces the Archive and presents an overview of Druecke’s project. Artist Michelle Grabner explores the many ways to approach a theoretical analysis of the Archive, while critic Lori Waxman provides a personal account and considers the materiality of the pictures themselves. The catalogue republishes artist David Robbins’s seminal interview with Druecke from 2000. In addition, each writer sequenced a selection of pictures from the Archive to suggest alternate ways of sorting and interpreting the work.

Frank Lloyd Wright: Buildings for the Prairie, produced in conjunction with the exhibition of the same title, celebrates two important occasions: Wright’s 150th birthday and the donation to the Museum of a complete set of Wright’s Wasmuth Portfolio and associated archival material and ephemera by the Demmer Charitable Trust. The catalogue’s essay, by Brandon Ruud, Abert Family Curator of American Art, explores the significance of Wright’s early work and the range and importance of his designs and those of his Prairie School colleagues, including frequent collaborator George Mann Niedecken. The publication features several color images of works in the exhibition and a full exhibition checklist.

Education and Public Programs

It takes an entire community to reach the 491,022 youth, schoolchildren, teachers, and adults who participate in the Milwaukee Art Museum’s education programs, both on- and off-site. This report focuses on the many organizations and individuals in the community that the Museum’s Education Department partners with to enrich these programs. During the fall exhibition Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s, Present Music, in collaboration with Quasimondo Milwaukee Physical Theatre, presented Angst, Horror, and Fun, a night of music and movies in Windhover Hall, which provided a different way to experience the drawings, posters, and set models on display. Teasing the exhibition in advance, Milwaukee Film featured the silent film Metropolis with Alloy Orchestra at its 2016 film festival. And for the summer exhibition Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy, Ex Fabula facilitated an evening of storytelling hosted with the Chipstone Foundation. Titled “Power, Dissent, and Youth


Empowerment,” the event celebrated the personal and the political through stories inspired by the work of artists of the African diaspora, including Rashid Johnson and the nineteenthcentury ceramist David Drake. The program was held in conjunction with 200 Nights of Freedom, a citywide marking of the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Milwaukee, a protest that began on August 28, 1967, against housing segregation. Also for the Rashid Johnson exhibition, local musicians performed at the Soulful Sunday community gathering and area pianists activated the work Antoine’s Organ. Finally, in Local Luminaries programs offered throughout the year, professionals including dancers, authors, designers, and poets provided their unique perspectives on works of art in the exhibitions. For its part, the Museum provided docent-guided tours throughout the summer for the inaugural exhibition of sculpture along Wisconsin Avenue presented by Sculpture Milwaukee.


Partnerships benefit school groups through rich interdisciplinary experiences. Docentguided tours extend the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Concert for Schools program with a look at works that relate to concert themes. First Stage Children’s Theater explores movement and character development with students after exhibition tours. And again this year, with the Kettle Moraine School District, the Museum welcomed six hundred students to the Art of Writing: Young Authors and Artists Conference. This one-day event and the Museum’s summer teacher workshops with the National Writing Project have been catalysts for the Museum’s writing and art tour, whose participation doubled this year.

of Music, and artists. In Paper Play: Kindergarten to Contemporary Art, in the Kohl’s Art Generation Gallery, six contemporary artists— Andrea Dezsö, Tara Donovan, Michelle Grabner, Wu Jian’an, Richard Sweeny, and Fred H. C. Laing, whose cut paper installation Morning Song hung in the East End—through their extraordinary works, inspired visitors of all ages to make weavings and paper sculptures. None of the programs the Education Department develops would be possible without a talented corps of volunteer docents. Highlighting all the Museum’s partnerships is impossible, but all make the Milwaukee Art Museum a dynamic and vibrant place of education and inspiration.

The Museum’s offerings for youth and families, such as Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays events, are enhanced through the participation of community guest hosts, including area schools, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee, and the Wisconsin Conservatory



Development The start of fiscal year 2017 was a historic one with Marcelle Polednik, PhD, the first Donna and Donald Baumgartner Director, leading the Museum into its next phase, post-reinstallation. She met with staff, trustees, donors, and community leaders as she set a new course for the Museum. Museum donors, in turn, working in partnership with the Development Department, continued to generously support the Museum’s efforts, making possible many of the accomplishments in 2016–17. Lastly, diligent in working toward its goal of more than $100 million, the Museum now has $43.7 million in its endowment. EVERY GIFT COUNTS Since the Museum operates without a sufficient endowment and is not eligible for support from federated fund drives such as UPAF or United Way, all gifts, large and small, are critical. The Museum’s fundraising successes reflect the region’s commitment to a world-class art museum for Milwaukee—to the presentation

of outstanding exhibitions and a world-class Collection, and to leading educational programs that are recognized as being among the finest in the country. 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 22,000 supporters contributed a total of $4,979,323 to the fund this fiscal year, inching past goal on the last day. 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 The Museum is grateful to have loyal Members who each year provide a vital source of support, allowing the Museum to fulfill its mission to inspire and educate. Members are one of the major drivers of the Museum’s programming,

education initiatives, and exhibitions. In fiscal year 2017, the Museum ended the year with close to 21,000 Member households. Comprising over 30 percent of the Museum’s annual attendance, Members took advantage of their most valuable benefit: free Museum admission. In addition to enjoying free access to the Museum’s vast schedule of lectures, tours, and educational programs, Members also enjoyed a host of exclusive Member-only events and privileges throughout the year, including three Member Preview Celebrations. Each preview event gave Members access to the exhibition before it opened to the public and included curator lectures, free audio guides, and an evening of music and refreshments. The Member Drink & Think tour series, which launched in fiscal year 2016, returned with eight events. The popular series, open to Members at the Art Advocate level and above, offers private curator-led tours of the exhibitions and time to socialize with other Members over refreshments. These same Members were also invited to several day trips, including to the Art Institute of Chicago to see Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist. All Members were invited to take part in Member-only tours, including the spooky Wicked Works tour in the fall and the Naughty Bits tour that coincided with Valentine’s Day. In May 2017, during the annual Memberappreciation month, Museum Members were again treated to extra discounts and admission privileges. They were also afforded free general admission to six Milwaukee-area museums on the popular Member Swap Day and enjoyed free reciprocal admission to the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago during the run of Rashid Johnson: Hail We Now Sing Joy.




With continued support from Nordstrom, the Museum’s new Family Access membership initiative saw significant growth. At $20, the Family Access membership provides families utilizing WIC (Women, Infants and Children), BadgerCare, FoodShare, and Medicaid all the benefits of the Family membership, including free admission for two adults and children 17 and under for one year. In fiscal year 2017, 255 families signed up for the Family Access membership, 85 percent of whom had never been Members before, bringing the total number of families that have signed up since its launch in May 2016 to 325. 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.

rose to two hundred. And President’s Circle Members 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 for each exhibition in the Baker/Rowland Galleries.

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.


Everyone, in the Museum and the community, benefits from the tremendous generosity of the President’s Circle Members. Thanks to them, the Museum remains a vital institution that continues to attract visitors to the community. 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 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. 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. In 2016–17, nearly three hundred President’s Circle Members gave $3 million. Membership in Benefactor Plus, or the $3,500 giving level,


Hail We Now Sing Joy, Currents 37: LAWRENCE WEINER: INHERENT INNATE TENSION, How Posters Work, Rineke Dijkstra: Rehearsals, The Lives of Others: Portraits from the Photography Collection, Helen Levitt: In the Street, James Nares: In the City, Paul Druecke: A Social Event Archive, and 2017 Scholastic Art Awards: Wisconsin Exhibition. Popular events such as MAM after Dark, Yoga @ the Museum, Kohl’s Art Generation Family Sundays, Art in Bloom, and Lakefront Festival of Art were again all made possible for thousands of Museum visitors to enjoy thanks to the commitment


of generous sponsors.

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.


The Museum again this year received strong sponsorship support. Meijer stayed on to sponsor Free First Thursday, opening the doors of the Museum to those who might not otherwise visit. Thanks to funding from Kohl’s Cares, the Museum continued to offer 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. The support of area businesses, foundations, and philanthropists further helped the Museum present the exhibitions Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s, Milwaukee Collects, Rashid Johnson:


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 exhibitions and education programs that the community has come to expect from its art museum. The current endowment generated only 10 percent of the annual operating budget, drastically trailing comparably sized 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.

Cash and cash equivalents


Investments and funds held in trust

Pledges receivable, net

The following are among the highlights of the 2017 operating year: •


The Museum Store, Café Calatrava, and facility rentals saw continued success; all contributed a gross profit of almost $2.9 million, which is similar to the prior year.

The total market value of investments was $50.5 million at the end of fiscal year 2017, compared to $48.4 million as of 2016. The major reason for the increase was due to investment gains on the portfolio. 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.

Goals for the annual campaign and membership were met, and the level of giving supported 59 percent of the Museum’s 2017 fiscal budget. The Museum has confirmed pledges to pay off the construction line of credit in the next three years.
