Dear Museum Guest,

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Zanesville Museum of Art. For over 80 years, the ZMA has been an important part of Zanesville’s cultural landscape offering vibrant adult and children’s programs, an encyclopedic collection of more than 8,000 works spanning 5,000 years, thought-provoking exhibitions, and much more. All of this is due, in large part, to the outstanding support of our community. We are most grateful for the generosity of our members, donors, and guests, both past and present.

The Zanesville Museum of Art flourished in 2017. We celebrated our 82nd anniversary, welcomed guests from all over the world to view our exciting suite of exhibitions, reinstalled the Shirley Gorsuch gallery, and featured even more works of art from collection storage in those spaces. We continued to strengthen our financial position last year and received nearly a quarter of the museum’s annual budget in grants to support outreach programs and new initiatives.

Even more interesting opportunities lay ahead for the ZMA this year. The museum, having undergone the strategic planning process, provided us the opportunity to examine our institutional goals, set new priorities, and refine mission-driven programs and activities.

We welcome guests to the ZMA Wednesday through Saturday and hope our dynamic and enriching experiences onsite and online ignite your creative imagination.

I hope to see you soon at the ZMA.

Laine Snyder
Executive Director
