Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Audience engagement: create compelling stories around exhibitions and events, communicate the Minneapolis Institute of Arts' stories over multiple programs and platforms, and assess constituents' reception of them. 450,000 Minnesotans will have opportunities to engage with the stories of art delivered in a new, less connoisseur-centered voice. Whenever possible, the museum will engage an outside evaluator to assess programs and projects related to this outcome. 2: Embrace globalization: address the global transmission of art and culture in exhibitions and develop programs that address the cultures and concerns of ethnic communities living in Minnesota. 450,000 Minnesotans will have opportunities to learn about the global transmission of culture through the presentation of works of art. Where possible, the museum will engage an outside evaluator to assess programs related to this outcome.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The MIA created compelling stories around exhibitions and events and communicated them over multiple platforms. By engaging visitors across multiple channels, including 100th Birthday Surprises, digital treatments called ArtStories, and Of Us and Art: The 100 Videos Project, the MIA welcomed over 700,000 visitors in FY 2015. 2: The MIA embraced globalization through exhibitions and programs that addressed the cultures and concerns of ethnic communities living in Minnesota. The MIA met this goal through a video program for Somali youth, an exhibition of the Art of Liberia and Sierra Leone, tours with Native American museum guides during Native American History Month, and many other activities.
