Our break from the City of Grand Rapids was completed
in 2008, an historical moment after 102 years of
municipal ownership.

During this transition it has been the Foundation’s
responsibility and challenge to re-focus the Museum’s
strategic efforts, establishing a clear vision for the future.

With the impending retirement of Museum Director
Mary Esther Lee, that vision now encompasses new leadership in the form of a
President and CEO. You’ll be hearing more from Dale Robertson, the Foundation’s
choice for that position, in the coming pages.

You’ll also read about the many successes of 2008 including the opening of a new
exhibit, sell-out special events, and a brightening donor environment.

As always, our focus as an institution remains on the people and community we serve.
We strive to use resources from the past to improve the future. Now, with a clear
direction for that future, the Public Museum is moving forward – a strong and present
force in the vibrant cultural life of our community.

The responsibility of a President & CEO – especially one charged
with a public trust – should be that of a careful listener.

For the first few months here, I have made an attempt to
become a good listener. As individuals share their Public
Museum experiences with me, I have discovered that each story,
though unique, contains a common thread: the Public Museum
opens the imagination and transforms lives.

I think of Tiffany. Her entire future was redirected in 9th grade
because of a Public Museum visit. I think of Brandon. Accustomed to growing up ‘virtual’,
surrounded by imitations and reproductions, he was awestruck that the sword sash in our
military display had been worn by Robert E. Lee himself.

Here at the Public Museum, everything is real and full of purpose. Behind the exhibit
glass lies an invitation to journey into the heart of this marvelous and complex institution,
to journey into the heart of oneself, to shape a common and better future.

Healthy communities willingly take up the mantle of change and move forward. West
Michigan is no exception. Tiffany and Brandon, legislators and business leaders all stand
ready to build, grow, and make accessible a strong and confident Public Museum.

This Annual Report is your invitation to share in that vision.

Founded in 1854, the Public Museum is one of the oldest museums in the
nation and among the largest and best-known public museums in Michigan.
It features a planetarium and three floors of permanent exhibits as well as
temporary exhibits of international stature.

Voigt House Victorian Museum
115 College Avenue, SE
Grand Rapids, MI
Home to the prominent Voigt family from 1895 – 1971 and preserved with
its original furnishings and personal possessions, this three-story mansion
brings the late nineteenth and early twentieth century to life.

Norton Mounds National Historic Landmark
Kent County Millennium Park
Grand Rapids, MI
Located within the boundaries of the Kent County Millennium Park, this
2,000 year old Hopewell Society earthworks are being preserved through a
collaborative effort under the direction of the Public Museum.

Community Archives and Research Center
223 Washington Street, SE
Grand Rapids, Michigan
CARC is the Museum’s off-site storage facility where close to half a million
artifacts in the Museum’s permanent collections that are not on exhibit are
housed, preserved and made available for scholarly research. CARC routinely
lends these artifacts to rural and suburban museums, libraries and non-profit
institutions across the state.

 From the
In 2008 the Public Museum experienced a tremendous outpouring of
public support and a good share of national acclaim as well.

We got off to a strong start with admissions exceeding first quarter
projections. Camp Curiosity was a sellout with new sections added
in August to accommodate the need.

Preparations for the JW Marriott Gala consumed the early autumn
months, an enormous undertaking that became the most successful
fundraiser in Public Museum history. “Lending A Hand Across
the Grand,” as the gala was named, proved once again that this
community has generosity at its core.

In February, the Public Museum opened Newcomers: The People of this Place to national acclaim.
This permanent exhibit is a highly enjoyable snapshot of the 50-plus cultures that call West
Michigan “home,” showcasing in personal story form the Africans, Bosnians, Frisians and Finnish
who changed – and were changed by – Grand Rapids and environs.

The project, which took more than eight years to complete, was applauded by the National
Endowment for the Humanities and will serve as an NEH model for successful living history
exhibitions currently in production across the country.

Members of the foundation and staff share my pride in the Museum’s tremendous work in 2008 and
we believe you, too, will be both informed and impressed as you read through this Annual Report.

To all who contributed to our success in 2008, thank you for your support. Because of you,
the Public Museum is able to continue its efforts to help make the Grand Rapids metropolitan
region better for future generations and a better place for us today.
