Each spring, high school students from the Museum Ambassadors program facilitate a Family and Community Day for the public. Hailing from all corners of the Cleveland area, these 10th-12th graders create projects summarizing their experiences at the museum during the past school year. Prior to the April 29th Community Day, students met with museum staff, planned an activity for visitors, and marketed the event in their schools and communities. This year more than 800 visitors participated.

She remembers the visit because it was the first time she saw one of her favorites in the collection Picasso’s La Vie for the first time.
As a museum visitor, have you ever wondered if your views are used in the process of developing programming? How exactly does the museum know what the community wants to learn and see? Perhaps it’s the luck of the draw or perhaps it’s the result of something called an audience researcher.
