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.
The number of images created of grounds, gardens, Lilly House, exhibitions, Art and Nature Park, visiting artists, programming activities and galleries since January 1, 2009.
In addition to documenting the collection, the IMA’s Photography Services Department is responsible for capturing museum images that range in subject matter from gardens/grounds, Art and Nature Park, exhibitions/galleries, visiting artists, educational/programming activities, and many special projects.
The IMA stores images of the grounds and Museum as well as related data in the Museum’s digital asset management system. As photographs are created, edited and optimized for presentaion or publication, they are uploaded to the system and the total sum of images is reported to the dashboard by a representative of the photography department on a monthly basis.
