Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Maximize points of access to Tweed Museum of Art collection. 2. Tweed Museum of Art Web site is a source of education and programming. Evaluate the number of collection-based programs per year, the number of collection objects through inventory and documentation process per quarter, user numbers, and the number of programs archived on the Web site per year.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We increased the number of programs with collection objects and the number of audience members. Education programs included seventy-four presentations of collection works to the public: thirty-seven were K-12 groups, eleven were from statewide communities, thirty-eight were from University, twelve were for persons with AlzheimerÆs, and twenty were Art Adventure public school outreach programs. We presented four exhibits in the museum of collection works. We presented three curatorial projects by independent curators using the permanent collection. We did four outreach presentations to 52 people in Native American communities of Northern Minnesota. We processed sixty-seven requests for information, loans, rights and reproduction. We made 600 documents of collection objects. We added fifty-five new objects to the Web site. We archived sixty-three programs on the Web site (from 2003-2010).
