Welcome to IMA Dashboard, an ongoing effort to measure various aspects of the Museum's performance. We welcome your comments on our progress in serving the IMA's mission. To navigate the Dashboard in particular areas, the tabs at the top of the screen drop down to allow for more detail. The goal of the Dashboard is to seek to quantify and report out on areas of activity of general interest to museum observers and to particular interest to museum studies specialists, colleagues, and patrons.

2011 Number of New Acquisitions

The total number of works of art acquired by the IMA in 2011.

This figure is based on the number of works accessioned by the IMA since January 1, 2011.

The IMA maintains a Permanent Collection, Study Collection, Miller House and Garden Collection, and Lilly House Collection. These collections are continuously evaluated to identify areas to strengthen and to ensure works acquired are consistent with the mission of the Museum and guided by the plans of the appropriate curatorial department.

Numerous factors must take place before an object is acquired, including the establishment of provenance, a free and clear title, and a preliminary examination of each work of art.

Works can be acquired by gift or bequest, by purchase or by transfer or exchange within the collections.

Each proposed acquisition is approved by the Director for presentation at the Museum’s Collections Committee meetings. The resulting recommendation are finally presented to the Museum’s Board of Governor’s for approval.

In recent years, the IMA has acquired hundreds of works of art in all areas of its collection, further enhancing the depth and breadth of its representation of the world's art. The acquisitions span a broad range of cultures and time periods.
