Happy New Year!
The Zanesville Museum of Art flourished in 2016. We celebrated our 80th anniversary, welcomed guests from all over the world to view our exciting suite of exhibitions, reinstalled two galleries, 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. We look forward to 2017, which I hope will bring even more interesting opportunities to the ZMA.
This month, the museum will begin strategic planning, having just completed the year-long Small Museum Accreditation Academy in 2016 sponsored by the American Alliance of Museums. As we examine our institutional goals, set new priorities, and refine mission-driven programs and activities, one thing remains constant—our members. You are the cornerstone of this institution. Thank you for your ongoing support.
I hope to see you at the museum soon.
