FROM THE DIRECTOR Dear Members, FROM THE PRESIDENT It is an exciting time for Rochester Art Center as we arrive at another milestone in our 68-year history as Rochester’s premier Art Center, and 10 years in our stunning building! While we reflect on our accomplishments from 2012-2013, we are motivated by what we can achieve together in 2014, already a robust year filled with promise. This year marks 10 years in this amazing building and 10 years of presenting cutting-edge art—art at the forefront of culture and community— alongside innovative education and community engaging programs. As we consider our success over the last two years, a period of important and responsible growth, we have an extraordinary opportunity to understand the institution as we celebrate our history and how, more than ever, Rochester Art Center is vital and necessary for Rochester. Dear Members and Friends, Rochester Art Center holds an essential place in the cultural landscape of our city. As an institution dedicated to international contemporary art and one that is nimble and exciting in its non-collecting mission, Rochester Art Center is a vehicle through which our community can regularly see the globe anew and be inspired by the transformative contributions artists make to the world. In 10 years, we have presented 466 artists in exhibitions and programs to include artists working in all contemporary media: painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, film, video, sound, and new technologies. We have shared with you global artistic visions with artists from Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Mexico, Nepal, Norway, Pakistan, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and from all over the United States. We likewise are dedicated to supporting artists and practices from our region as 2014 also marks the 40th solo exhibition of Minnesota artists in our 3rd Floor Emerging Artists Series and our 4th year for RAC2 in which we have presented 44 artists from Rochester. You have often been the first to experience experimental art before the rest of the US and the world. This experience represents our commitment to supporting artists in realizing their vision in exploring new ideas and generating new work by providing the critical platform, resources, and professional staff to make it possible. At Rochester Art Center you have the opportunity to witness what can transpire when artists are provided the place and space to create. The ephemeral quality of our temporary exhibitions reflects the dynamic pulse of the contemporary art world, and that pulse is beating fast. We envision the next decade to be filled with opportunities as our community grows and embraces what makes us unique and what makes us thrive—our distinctive culture. Reaching our goals would not be possible without an enormously talented and dedicated staff; I am thankful for all they do, especially their passion for and motivation in delivering our mission. We are grateful for the support provided by our donors and members, the City of Rochester, the State of Minnesota, foundations, our terrific Board of Directors, and the many leaders in this community for all you do, every year, to help us achieve our mission. I look forward to your continued support and invite you to join us, your Art Center, as we chart the next 10 years for this great institution! Shannon Fitzgerald, Executive Director DOUBLE THE IMPACT! BOARD OF DIRECTORS MATCHING GIFT CHALLENGE While Rochester Art Center doubled our impact in the community in 2013, we invited our supporters to double the impact of their special gifts. In mid-October, Rochester Art Center’s Executive Committee rallied and established a challenge to the Board with the creation of a new Board Matching Gift Challenge 2013. In a two-week campaign, the Board of Directors pledged $21,000. With such amazing generosity and significant gesture of support and belief in our mission, the Board enabled the Art Center to launch a community-wide matching gift program that ran from October 31 through December 31. This initiative was vital to going beyond our usual annual fund drive and achieving our important financial goals for 2013. With generous help from our supporters, we topped our $42,000 GOAL with donations exceeding $44,000. From the Board, staff, and members of Rochester Art Center – THANK YOU for supporting our exhibitions, art education and public programs, and communityoriented collaborations. 2012 & 2013 BOARD OF DIRECTORS I am delighted to provide this report of Rochester Art Center’s activities from 2012 through 2013. At the end of 2012, we shifted from a budget model of cost containment to a more forward thinking model of growth. With our new growth model, we set aspirational goals to enhance our programming across all areas and Stephen Troutman pose for a photo with props created by of Museum operations. We took particular Julie Tastes Like Paint students at ARTigras 2012. aim at education and community outreach in a way that both supported and leveraged our exhibitions. We matched a more aggressive and diverse approach to our curatorial programming with exciting special events and educational opportunities for children and people of all ages. These new program initiatives were all mission driven and expertly aligned to the Art Center’s strategy. Our 2013 growth model created budgetary challenges and required astute management. I am especially pleased to note that, while we increased the institutional budget in 2013, we simultaneously retired a significant portion of the debt that was carried over from previous fiscal years. We continue to embrace the budgetary finesse that we demonstrated throughout the entire period. Our success was possible for several reasons. We were awarded many coveted national and international grants—many for the first time— in 2012 and 2013. These came from major foundations in recognition and support of our exhibitions, catalogs, and education programming. Our support from the City of Rochester for Facilities provided a stable base; and, importantly, our members, donors, and sponsors also stepped up to the challenge. We are grateful for your generous support and are counting on you again this year! None of these changes and challenges would have been possible without our new Executive Director, Shannon Fitzgerald. In place since July, 2012, Shannon has brought intellectual prowess and level-headed stewardship to the institution along with new perspectives and new program initiatives. Shannon was at the helm for the full fiscal year cycle for 2013, overseeing both planning and execution. She had lead our, already outstanding, staff to levels of excellence they did not even know they possessed. The results have been simply wonderful. Under Shannon’s leadership, we more than doubled the number of people we touched directly in Rochester and tripled the number reached through community engagement. We collaborated in 34 partnerships with other organizations and improved our operational position with thoughtful, timely, and multifaceted events and programs. Our exhibitions and programs continue, one after another, to be world class; and our impact has been greatly enhanced by the publication of major exhibition catalogs. This report tells the story of our achievements and provides an overview of the incredible work produced and shared with your support. Please take a moment to review it. I think you will find it to be thoughtful and very informative. Again, I commend our Executive Director, Shannon Fitzgerald, and the entire talented staff for the important work they do and for the substantive changes successfully brought forth in 2013. On a personal note, I must tell you that I was repeatedly inspired by the depth and breadth of the art, artists, curators, and scholars that were here, in our museum, to participate in and contribute to our new programs. I want to underscore how important and exciting these opportunities in contemporary art are to challenge one’s self and growth. Bradley S. Nuss, Christine M. Armstrong, Dr. Paul D. Scanlon, Roger Stahl, Mary Dunlap, Dr. Stephen J. Russell, and Stephen Troutman. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to thank you—our members, donors, sponsors, granting foundations, and the City of Rochester for helping to make our growth in 2013 possible. Thank you again for your great support. I look forward to seeing you often at Rochester Art Center. All campaign donors listed on page 6.

As the daughter of a graphic designer, art was something she knew well; as an 8th grader, Maggie joined the teen art group Tastes Like Paint at RAC. Now in her 5th year with the group, she has participated in collaborations, co-curated exhibits, and produced work for other projects. Volunteering at RAC immersed her fully into its community, entranced by the excitement of gallery openings, community interaction, and events. Rochester Art Center has become a second home for Maggie. Between figure skating practices and work, you could always find Maggie spending her free time at the Art Center during the summer—volunteering, painting, or interning for Naura Webb, Director of Community Relations, Marketing, and Design. Without the Rochester Art Center, she states, "My world would be black and white instead of bursting with color." Maggie is a senior at Mayo High School where she is a member of the National Honor Society. While still pursuing the arts, Maggie also actively participated in scientific research throughout high school—publishing a scientific research paper by age 16. The balance of art and science in her life is the driving force behind her decision to major in Molecular Biology and double major or minor in Studio Art in her no longer distant future.

RAC helps create a sense of community and engages audiences, residents, and visitors in a meaningful way. As Rochester is home to Mayo Clinic, RAC not only provides a diversion for our patients and their families but also contributes to the healing process. From local patrons to an international clientele, RAC stimulates and challenges one’s senses through varied nationally acclaimed exhibitions. And while this is extremely important, I would be remiss if I didn’t extoll the value of the many youth and summer arts programs. Having a granddaughter who can’t wait to participate regularly and each summer gives me firsthand knowledge of this aspect of the programming at RAC. As a city about to experience tremendous growth through our Destination Medical Center, Rochester Art Center will play an integral and important part of this growth. —Mayor Ardell F.
