Background Statement

 The Nelson-Atkins opened to the public in 1933 and is now celebrating its 86th year. Possessing a strong and diverse collection from the onset, the museum’s holdings now include over 40,000 works of world art from Antiquity to the present day. Its collections of over 8,000 works of Chinese art and more than 15,000 photographs are each considered one of the finest in the world. The museum is situated on 22 acres of landscaped grounds, which showcase the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park.

The last decade has been one of change and growth for the Nelson-Atkins. The award-winning Bloch Building opened in 2007, increasing museum space by 60%, adding new galleries for the display of modern and contemporary art, African art, photography, and featured exhibitions, as well as a new home for the Spencer Art Reference Library, the largest art reference library in the Kansas City area. In the 1933 Nelson-Atkins Building, newly renovated and enlarged galleries of American and Native American art opened in 2009 and new galleries of Egyptian and Chinese art opened in 2010. Newly renovated galleries of 19th-20th-century European art opened in March 2017.

Impact Statement

In fiscal year 2019 (May 1, 2018 – April 30, 2019), the Nelson-Atkins received nearly 520,000 visitors. During that time, the museum hosted the following exhibitions: The Big Picture: A Transformative Gift from the Hall Family Foundation (4/28/18-10/7/18); Unexpected Encounters (6/2/18-8/12/18); Wendell Castle: Shifting Vocabularies (6/26/18 – 1/20/19)Napoleon: Power and Splendor (10/26/18-3/3/19)Discriminating Thieves: Nazi-Looted Art and Restitution (1/26/19 - 1/26/20)Saya Woolfolk: Expedition to the ChimaCloud (3/1/19 – 9/1/19)Andy Goldsworthy: Walking Wall (3/5/19 - 11/30/19); Anthony Hernandez: L.A. Landscapes (4/19/19-8/18/19).

Additionally, more than 177,000 individuals attended public programs at the museum last year, including presentations, festivals and films. Festivals activate the entire museum and represent the largest-scale events hosted at the museum. Our annual cultural festivals include a Day of the Dead festival, Juneteenth, American Indian Cultural Celebration, Chinese New Year, Passport to India, and Deaf Cultural Festival. Collectively, these events attract 35,000 individuals annually.

Almost 58,000 students and educators were also served last year by the museum’s school and educator services department. Activities include the school group tours, school group studio workshops, teen programs, educator workshops, docent training program, museum guide program and more. These programs extend and support classroom learning for Pre-K to 12th-grade students from across the region. Half of the students served attend Title I schools—those with high percentages of children that qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Needs Statement The museum relies on contributions through major gifts, grants and memberships for 40% of its annual operating revenue. Every gift helps connect more than half a million visitors each year with the best achievements in visual art. Donors and members can take pride in knowing their investment sustains the museum’s world-class collection and invigorates educational programs that inspire future generations.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

The museum’s history is rich and the collection is deep, so I urge you to visit often. You will discover true originals, mankind’s greatest achievements, from ancient to contemporary works of art. You will also feel the power of community, as we celebrate diverse cultures and mark important days with festivals, dancing, talks, tours and classes.

Discover the museum at your own pace, by yourself or with family and friends. Make it your museum!

¡Saludos!

Programs
Description

The Education Division has been an integral part of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art since the museum’s founding in 1933. Its five divisions – Schools and Educator Programs, Public Programs, Interpretation, Education Volunteers, and the Spencer Art Reference Library – served nearly 180,000 visitors of all ages last year, from the novice to the scholar. Half of the students served attend Title I schools—those with high percentages of children that qualify for free or reduced lunch. For example, the School Incentive program provides funding for Title I schools to attend a workshop or tour at the museum, while the Thinking Through Art program brings museum docents and visual literacy activities to classrooms at Title I schools.

The education division is committed to:

  • enhancing PreK-12th-grade student learning in and through art;
  • providing educators with resources and professional development to integrate works of art and museum experiences into their teaching;
  • offering adults a range of social, cultural and artistic experiences in support of life-long learning;
  • supporting family learning and connections through hands-on, minds-on experiences;
  • building partnerships and programs that increase engagement with African American communities, Hispanic communities and people with disabilities; and
  • using evaluation and analytics to inform strategic decision making.
 
Program Success Monitored By

There are two full-time evaluators on staff at the museum who evaluate program success and museum visitorship.

Examples of Program Success

The Nelson-Atkins’s School Incentive and Thinking Through Art (TTA) programs provide low-income students with the rare opportunity to participate in cultural enrichment and to practice critical thinking skills that are consistent with state learning standards. Both programs utilize inquiry based, student centered pedagogies to support critical thinking skills. More specifically, the TTA program uses the Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) method to improve students’ abilities to construct and assess arguments. In a VTS conversation, students are asked "what is going on in this picture," which opens up multiple perspectives and observations. Then they are asked "what do you see that makes you say that?" which requires students to build an argument with evidence. Furthermore, students must assess other arguments. Students are expected by the state to continually improve these critical thinking skills in order to progress to the next grade level, and these programs help students practice those skills in new and engaging ways.

Description

Museum publications, including Art Scene (6 issues/year) and Member Magazine (2 issues/year) are a critical means of communication, providing a direct channel from the museum to the community it serves. The museum also regularly publishes collection and exhibition catalogs. These publications exemplify the scholarship of the museum’s staff and serve as a valuable resource to scholars, students and art lovers alike.
