3: The Entrance & Back View
4: The Grounds of the museum are immaculately maintained. Throughout the grounds there are many sculptures as you will note throughout this photo essay. The museum is likely to keep a gardener and/or horiculture expert with the extensive varieties of flora they keep on site.

7: Various sculptures kept throughout the grounds.
10: Note the sign differentiating the trees. There are also many trails visitors can take throughout the grounds. Often times on the weekend you will run into joggers and hikers. The use of trail does not require admission. Due to the additional outdoor activities I'm sure the museum maintains security on premises to cover the additional grounds. The information on the botanicals is probably maintained by the gardener or horiculture expert.
11: The information/ticketing desk is very intimate, usually there are two members from staff or volunteers. To the left of the information desk is a small coat room also maintained by the information desk. Literature on the museum and its exhibitions can be located around the corner of the information/ticketing desk. The literature comes from education or public relations/market. Due to the intimate size of the museum I doubt they have an information or editorial department. (photo right) This event space is consistently changing.This space is utilized for weddings, events, children's activities, and other museum programs. The museum hosts annual internal gala's which they advertise in various publications and press. All events and programs maintained are properly managed by Public Relations, marketing, and education department,
12: Member services occupies a small area in front of the entry way to current exhibitions. It is run by volunteers and staff from membership development. It is very informal as everything is processed manually without the use of a computer. Large signs as the photo on the right is prominently displayed in the entry way alerting visitors of current activities going on throughout the day or a particular time frame. These advertisements are generated by education, marketing and public relations. If it is designed externally, then a contractor in design or print services will supply the production of large signages throughout the museum.
13: Film screenings are also held throughout the year. Usually the film is held in one of the main rooms (photo right) on the ground floor. The film coincides with the current exhibition. At the time of the visit the works of Richard Avedon was held, and a short film on his work was playing on loop in the room for anyone to walk in and view and at their own leisure. These film series are carefully selected by the curator, education department with the knowledge of Public Relations knowing what is happening in and around the museum.
14: (Photo left) One or two additional television monitors are set up upstairs for different exhibitions. The two additional exhibitions at the time of the visit included works by Josef Albers and photographs of Robert Hite. The television monitors were only set up in the Josef Albers wing, the Robert Hite exhibition only occupied one room. The television programming was selected by the education department and the curatorial department. I'm sure technical support if needed was arranged by outside contractors or someone responsible for audio and visual.
15: Tours are given by volunteers and/or docents. The material is reviewed by the curator and education department to ensure the proper information is being guided and given to the public.
16: The museum gift shop is maintained by additional staff or volunteers. Various literature on art and current exhibitions can be found as well as museum knick knacks for adults and children.
17: The Education Center Studios is located separately from the main building. The center has it's own parking lot. It is mainly utilized for Education programs for children, senior citizens, and adult art education programs. Collectively the Education department along with its marketing and Public relations can make quite the use of the facilities to promote arts education to the public.
