Art31: Thirty-one days of Experimentation and Collaboration

Art31 is a contemporary continuation of Smith's vision for his artist's community known as the Research Studio from 1937-59, now the Maitland Art Center. It was a place for experimentation and collaboration where artists pushed their artistic limits and hosted prominent modern artists such as Milton Avery and Ralston Crawford. Works by these artists are in America's top museums including the Metropolitan Museum and National Gallery. Art31 honors Smith's vision of innovation with an emphasis on both artists and participants. While most museums encourage guests to simply look at works of art, Art31 is designed for patrons to fully engage with the artwork. The goals of Art31 are: Host high-quality innovative artists from around the country that elevate the profile of the A&H and Central Florida as a place for groundbreaking contemporary art.Teach about the creative process and allow participants to insert their own perspective and interpretation of the work to widen their views of the world.Honor Smith's vision to provide artists with the tools and creative environment to create boundary-pushing works.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    The Art & History Museums - Maitland (A&H) has a comprehensive strategic plan that guides all activities of the institution. Created in 2011, the strategic plan states the vision of the A&H is a premier cultural destination in Florida with unique facilities and legacy based programming. The A&H strives to an institution that regional residents take pride in as a community gathering place and a must visit destination. The stories of our founders are told through exhibits, education, and programming that resonates as part of the American experience. Visitors and participants make their own history as our unique grounds and collections inspire them to learn and create. The A&H's impact is significant in providing an important service to the community through understanding and interacting with art and heritage. The A&H serves Central Florida residents and tourists from around the world through:* Promoting individual artists' growth, experimentation, and collaboration* Stewarding nationally significant art and history collections for future generations* Providing inspiration, and provoking thought through exhibitions, lectures, hands-on programming, and dynamic events * Enriching participants' knowledge about themselves and promoting a better understanding of the world* Preserving and sharing the stories of our ancestors to inform the future* Motivating guests to take action by creating their own art, researching their own stories, or preserving objects, ephemera and buildings* Building community through programming, volunteerism, economic impact, and creating a stronger sense of placeVisitors leave our museums with an expanded knowledge base and inspiration to act. The strategic plan outlines the specific goals below to be reached by 2016. All goals have performance indicators such as satisfaction, attendance, and more* Diversify Revenue* Mission Based Planning with 5 years of artistic planning* Board Development* Engage participants with a meaningful experience resulting in repeat attendance and membership* Increase awareness and engagement locally, regionally, and nationally* Expand facilities to better achieve mission The A&H strategic plan defines the institution as a participant-centric; to ensure the experience is directly tied to mission with a focus on both engagement and a high level of customer service. The goal of the participant-centric direction is to become the ""third"" place people want to go (other than work or home for residents, and other than parks or dining for tourists.) This goal is met through engaging and inspiring mission based programming complemented by quality physical facilities, and excellent customer service.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    A&H Senior Staff in coordination with the CEO and board have created 3 - 6 year plans for their departments to reach strategic plan goals. Highlights of these plans include: * Concept Exhibitions that tell a common story across all five A&H Museums. These concept exhibitions are designed as an interdisciplinary approach to connect the A&H's diverse collections and further engage visitors. Complementary educational programming includes the same interdisciplinary approach. In addition to these exhibitions, the A&H produces art exhibitions focused celebrating the history of the Research Studio and honor its continuing legacy. History exhibits focus on the strength of special collections by creating interactive opportunities for guests. * Artists-in-Action (AiA) and Artists-in-Residence (AiR) programs bring nationally recognized artists, and professional local artists on the A&H campus to live and work in the tradition of Maitland Art Center (MAC) founder André Smith. Smith founded the Research Studio, now known as the Maitland Art Center, as a place for artists to create, experiment, and collaborate. AiAs and AiRs participate in A&H programming, and help enliven the campus for daily visitors and during events. * Signature Events are a way for the A&H to share its many cultural venues with new audiences through monthly programming that targets specific demographics. These events provide opportunity to engage new patrons and meet the needs of specific community groups. Signature events include: Artists' Critique & Conversation, Ladies Art Lounge, Family Days at the Museum, and Culture Pop. * Education programs focus on enriching lives through meaningful experiences tied to the core of the A&H mission. Art education is informed by Andre Smith's vision for the Research Studio, with programming available for all skill levels, from casual amateur artists to seasoned professionals. History education celebrates the stories of our ancestors and A&H's niche collections with rich interactive experiences. * Stewarding and building the art collection of Smith's and the Bok Fellows' work, and contemporary work of artists meaningfully engaged with the Art Center's continuing legacy. Historical collections focus on items and stories essential to telling the story of Maitland as reflective of the American experience, including A&H's strong niche collections. * A strong network of volunteers who focus on supporting the mission and activities of the A&H, creating a beneficial experience for the volunteer. * Marketing efforts tailored towards specific areas of focus include multi-tiered strategies to reach a regional and sometimes national audience. Identification of target audiences, strengths, and challenges for each area of focus hones in on best strategies for awareness. * Further patron engagement through utilization of Patron Manager CRM software. The A&H continually evolves software customization to record meaningful information about patrons for tailored interaction. * Comprehensive fund development plan that outlines grant opportunities, annual campaign and individual giving strategies to engage new donors, the Landmark Society giving circle, and creation of an Annual Sponsorship Package as a tool to cultivate new corporate sponsors. * A phased master plan will be presented to the public in 2016 to meet the growing needs of educational programming including the signature events.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    The A&H's professional staff is the heartbeat of the organization with over 55 years of combined experience in the arts non-profit sector. Under the leadership of Andrea Bailey Cox, the A&H innovative staff holds many awards and recognitions from the Florida Association of Museums, Orlando Business Journal, Girl Scouts of Citrus Council, and the State of Florida. Ms. Cox was named the 2014 Martin Bell Scholar and is an EMBA graduate from the Rollins College Crummer School of Business. The A&H Board of Directors brings diverse expertise to the organization to achieve strategic goals. Directors with knowledge of design, building and construction are tremendous assets in the master planning process. Additional talent in finance, legal, marketing, communications, and academic fields. These individuals cast a wide net across the Central Florida community to introduce new contacts to the organization and expand the A&H's footprint in the region and nation. Additionally, the A&H takes pride in its community partnerships. Community partnerships allow the A&H to reach a wider audience, and deepen the relationship with the cultural community to encourage repeat visitation. Recent partners include: Performing Arts of Maitland, University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Rotary Club of Maitland, Maitland Public Library, Museum of Arts and Sciences Daytona Beach, Maitland Woman's Club, Maitland Civic Center, Girl Scouts of Citrus Council, Southern Winds Theatre, Orange County Schools, Bok Tower Gardens, Carl Hill Galloway Telephone Pioneers Club, Empty Spaces Theatre, Voci Dance, Orange County Regional History Center, Orlando Museum of Art, Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Enzian Theater, Parramore Kidz Zone, and Apopka Family Learning Center. Staff also makes the most of corporate partnerships to underwrite business expenses. These partnerships range from in-kind donations of signs, to legal advice, and cash donations that cover the cost of programming. With the help of corporate partners, the A&H is able to present high quality exhibitions and programs. The A&H formed an invaluable resource with the Artist and Historian Advisory Council, who help shape and fulfill the artistic direction of the institution. Comprised of distinguished scholars and successful museum professionals, this notable group is charged with helping solidify exhibition and programming ideas and offer input to help establish strategic partnerships that further the artistic plan. With careful consideration of staff resources, the A&H has thoughtfully invested in equipment and software to increase efficiency. As previously mentioned, Patron Manager has been an invaluable resource to track patron engagement and customize patron communications. The A&H is a fiscally stable organization with a small endowment and several restricted funds. A&H has a dynamic public-private partnership with the City of Maitland who generously leases the properties to A&H at a rate of $99 for 51 years. The organization strives to continue to diversify revenue streams and increase its endowment.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    The A&H has established the following methods to achieve and measure excellence: * Departmental Year Plans based on Strategic Plan goals and departmental plans. Year plans include benchmarks for success for the year. These benchmarks include attendance goals, financial goals, customer satisfaction rating goals, and planning goals. * Senior Staff review the status of year plan goals on a quarterly basis with their staff and CEO. An Annual Review of each employee is conducted that measures employee performance and evaluates year plan goals reached. * Quarterly Performance Dashboard reported to the Board of Directors gives a birds-eye view of the state of the organization. Dashboard a compares last fiscal year to current fiscal year in key areas including Patron Participation, Membership, Volunteers, Revenue Diversification, and Increased Awareness. * Surveying of guests after each experience through on-site questionnaires, and digital survey collection to improve existing services. The A&H also conducts specialized surveys to inform future event planning, and collect member feedback. This crucial information has led to new programming, additional staff and volunteer training, as well as improved logistical details such as the locations of admission desks. * Monthly financial reporting to the Board of Directors from Treasurer and CEO provides a budget to actual comparison for the current month and current fiscal year. Once approved by Board of Directors, these reports are shared with staff so they may ensure they are on target to meet financial goals. * Annual Strategic Plan Evaluation by Board of Directors reviews the progress towards Strategic Plan goals, as well as new obstacles that might impede progress. This review takes into account all factors influencing the current year, and any revisions needed for the next year. * Annual CEO Evaluation by Board of Directors to gauge the effectiveness of the A&H leadership.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    The strategic plan goals charge the institution with growth in six target areas: revenue diversification, mission based planning with five years of artistic planning, board development, engage participants with a meaningful experience resulting in repeat attendance and membership, increased awareness and engagement locally, regionally, and nationally, and facilities expansion to better achieve mission. Successes in these areas include:Completed renovations on André Smith's original residence, and launched Artist-in-Residence program that hosted nationally recognized artists to live and work at the A&H.

Homepage and Google News, and recognition from prominent architectural historian, Richard Guy Wilson: ""I was struck dumb!

I hope to come back soon someday and spend some more time...""- Richard Guy Wilson, Commonwealth Professor and Chair, Department of Architectural History at University of VirginiaA grant was recently awarded to restore the galleries to their original architecture, renovate the bathrooms, and create WiFi internet availability.
