Overview


Mission Statement

The MUZEO Museum and Cultural Center's mission is to engage the community by exploring and celebrating our diverse heritage, culture and arts through creative programming. MUZEO's goals are to dynamically engage the community, expand our reach to new audiences and break down barriers to access of culture and the arts.

Background Statement

Started in 2007, MUZEO Museum and Cultural Center challenges patrons to explore, imagine and feel the culture that surrounds them. Founded as "the museum without walls," MUZEO's central ideal is that culture should be accessible to all- regardless of race, class or background. MUZEO is an ever-changing cultural venue that hosts significant exhibits which otherwise would not be available to the Orange County community. MUZEO has hosted calligraphy classes, art festivals, live musicians, children’s crafts, and created exhibit-related educational packets for classroom use. MUZEO serves patrons of all ages, races and economic backgrounds from across Orange County and the Southern California region.

Impact Statement

MUZEO stands literally and figuratively at the center of cultural movement. Within a few blocks you’ll find the Anaheim Ballet, public art installations, and Anaheim’s weekly Farmer’s Market with craft booths. With additional funding, MUZEO could offer its facility as a place to enjoy world-class exhibits and partake in art programs available to inter-generational and diverse groups. The vision the MUZEO has audience participation as a fundamental goal and brings people together to foster a new sense of community pride. Throughout the year, MUZEO provides a broad range of arts programming including: varied art classes, live artist workshops, festivals, lectures, art therapy classes and poetry readings. We are striving to reach both the ethnically diverse population of Anaheim and attract interest from Orange County residents and visitors to increase positive attention and real change for the area.


Needs Statement

Faced with a high unemployment rate and lower than average household income, Anaheim needs help reviving its once vibrant past. MUZEO Museum and Cultural Center was created to be the cultural hub of downtown Anaheim, to encourage a resurgence of community pride and provide an avenue for arts engagement. MUZEO is creating a broad range of arts programming including: varied art classes, live artist workshops, festivals, lectures and poetry readings. In order for this dream to become a reality, additional part-time staffing is necessary.


CEO Statement

MUZEO is dynamic and ever changing. This gives it flexibility to be creative and responsive to the community's needs. I was raised in Anaheim and have a true sense of the community and its diversity. I look forward to contributing to the endeavors of Muzeo and to the continued development of the city in a positive fashion. I hope to make rooted memories for all of our patrons, memories that will lead back to Muzeo and our great city of Anaheim. Thanks to our founders and continuing contributors, we are well on our way to becoming a jewel in the crown of Orange County destinations.



Board Chair Statement

Because MUZEO exists as a public/private partnership, we are constantly exploring new and exciting partnership opportunities with companies and civic organizations throughout Orange County. In order to meet this challenge, we have recruited a variety of board members from various organizations and industries who will embrace MUZEO's vision to impact and improve the cultural awareness of our citizens.

Other Ways to Donate/Volunteer

The Muzeo appreciates donations of any manner; checks, credit cards, in-kind, etc. The Muzeo currently needs volunteers who have organizational and people skills. When an exhibit is in the museum, docents are needed for special school tours.

Programs


Lunch & Learn

Lunch & Learn Program.  This is a program which takes place on a monthly basis during the lunch hour.  Various people are invited to speak to the community about their respective topic of interest.  Residents are invited to bring their lunch andattend the free presentations.  Some topics covered in the past have been to learn about Alzheimers Disease, maintaining a healthy heart and avoiding heart attacks, overview of the YWCA program, Veterans Services, just to name a few.
Budget  $200
Category  Public, Society Benefit, General/Other Citizen Participation Programs
Population Served General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  Residents have expressed appreciation for the various topics being presented for their benefit.
Program Long-Term Success  These programs are offered as a way for residents to be mindful of their own health and circumstances, so it would be hard to quantify a long term success at this time.
Program Success Monitored By  Program success is monitored by attendance, audience participation and feedback.
Examples of Program Success  An example of success would be the resident who has now learned the warning signs of an impending heart attack, and it now ready to take action to prevent and/or mitigate the severity of the attack.

Open Book

The Open Book Series is a monthly evening meeting.  A local author is invited to speak about their writing process; developing the plot and characters, how they came to write this book and often do a reading from the book.  The audience is encouraged to ask questions and books are available for purchase at the event.
Budget  $200
Category  Public, Society Benefit, General/Other Citizen Participation Programs
Population Served General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  The participants have expressed gratitude for the opportunity to come hear local authors speak and read excerpts from their books.
Program Long-Term Success  The Open Book program is an excellent opportunity for local authors to showcase their work, talk about it, and encourage other writers who are interested in being published.  The series creates a harmony and community of like-minded people who enjoy the camaderie and exposure to books and new ideas.
Program Success Monitored By  The Program success is monitored by the attendance of people who attend these events, plus the responses received at the events.
Examples of Program Success  An example of success for an author would be acquiring new followers who enjoy reading their books.  For the audience, an appreciation of being introduced to a new author who might have new and interesting books to share.

TrashARTist Challenge & Expo

The purpose of the TrashARTist Challenge is to recognize the artistic reuse of trash and to promote a message of conservation and sustainability. The program is multifaceted and inter-generational in its reach. Beginning with the art portion, children in grades 3-12 are invited to work collaboratively to transform trash into art and submit their projects for judging at MUZEO's TrashART Gallery. The public is invited to cast their vote for People’s Choice Award and question their own notions of “trash.”  Next, the Educational Program Component connects the participants with environmentally focused community partners by encouraging visits to designated learning sites.


Budget  $20,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Museum Education
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  Short term success simply means an increase in the reach of this program throughout the Southern California region. MUZEO hopes to increase strategic partnerships in hosting this program, increase the number of participants and increase tracking to gauge tangible outcomes. 
Program Long-Term Success  Long term success could be viewed by a shift in Orange County resident's habits and perception of trash. Our hope is that by using art to rethink their vision of trash, residents will learn and begin instituting sustainable living habits such as increased recycling (less going to landfills), conserve water and use less resources overall.
Program Success Monitored By 

MUZEO is diligently working to make the TrashARTist Challenge Program more impactful in the community. We will measure success by comparing the following factors (quantitative data) to previous years: number of projects submitted, number of children participating, number of community partners participating, number of expo attendees, number of People's Choice votes cast and total dollars raised to support MUZEO. We'll also review qualitative data by reviewing art contest participant surveys, anecdotal evidence and TrashART gallery surveys. Together these methods will provide a comprehensive view of MUZEO’s impact in community and provide a gauge of what worked to inform future planning.


Examples of Program Success  Success is seen in the faces of the people who visit the TrashARTist Gallery. Often times people will stand in awe of the creativity shown in the projects and the remarkable reuse of materials to create something entirely new.
