Summary of Impact

ACCOMPLISHMENTS1)  In September 2010 Roxana Velásquez joined the Museum as Executive Director.  The Museum has recruited a highly experienced and talented team that includes: Dr. Julia Marciari-Alexander (MA and PhD in the History of Art, Yale University, MA in French Literature, NYU) as Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, overseeing all aspects of the curatorial and publications programs; Dr. Sonya Rhie Quintanilla, Curator of Asian Art (Ph.D., Harvard University); Dr. John Marciari, Curator of European Art and Director of Provenance Research (Ph.D. Yale University); Julianne Markow, Deputy Director of Operations and Finance (MBA, Finance, University of Chicago); and Katy McDonald, Deputy Director of External Affairs (M.B.A., University of San Diego). 2)  A focus of the Museumís long-range plan is to bring greater attention to its permanent collection so that: 1) scholars and visitors can experience a wide range of art; and 2) the Museum is acknowledged for one of the finest collections of European art in the country. To showcase this art, the Museum has renovated its galleries and has reinstalled its permanent collection. From this collection the Museum is currently showcasing Toulouse-Lautrecís Paris, which includes 100+ spectacular drawings, lithographs, posters, and paintings by one of the greatest 19th century French artists.     3)    In 2009 the Museum was awarded a major grant from the NEA to publish the first scholarly catalog of its permanent European collection.    GOALS 1)  Through collaborations with other museums, the Museum will present traveling exhibitions that bring art from other museums and private collections to San Diego and, through their presence in its galleries, shed new light on its permanent collection.  Upcoming exhibitions include:  Gustav Stickley and the American Arts and Crafts Movement (June 18, 2011- 9/11/2011, organized with the Dallas Museum of Art); Echoes of the Past: the Buddhist Cave Temples of Xiangtangshan (February 18, 2012-May 27, 2012, organized with the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution); Behold America!, a major traveling exhibition of U.S. art from three San Diego museums, co-organized by The San Diego Museum of Art, the Timken Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.   2)  The Museum will continue implementation of a multi-phase, major cataloguing project documenting its permanent collection (approximately 16,000 objects) with the aim of making the cataloguing information available online.   3)    The Museum will work with existing educational partners (K-12 schools, academics, student and educator programs, and the research community) to offer arts education programs in classrooms, including: School in the Park program, serving approximately 850 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students during the 2011-12 school year;  residency programs for an estimated 1,500 at-risk students attending a minimum of five alternative schools/education programs (e.g. Monarch School) during the 2011-12 school year; Museum tours to visiting school groups as well as docent-led outreach to schools (slide program), serving a minimum of 6,500 students and educators.   4)    The Museum will present public events that encourage people of all ages to experience and enjoy its exhibitions and programs, including: Family Festivals; second annual Summer Salon Series, Thursday evening programs featuring music, performing artists, special works by emerging artists, and art-making activities; Screen on the Green, a summer series of family-friendly films held on the lawn outside the museum (with an average attendance of 900/film); a minimum of two events designed for teenagers as part of the Teen Art Café initiative; Family Drop-In Days to encourage parents and children to engage in hands-on art activities; Art of ?lan concerts, drawing relationships between visual art from the Museumís permanent collection to specific works of classical music.
