Strategic Plan

The museum's strategic plan for fiscal years 2018 through 2021 was developed over a seven-month period and included surveys and focus groups with members, visitors, key constituent groups, and the public. Over 1,100 community members provided input to this process.


To be a nationally acclaimed regional cultural center through curatorial excellence, innovative programming, and by offering an extraordinary visitor experience. We aspire to be essential to the social and cultural life of our local community and a must-see destination for visitors.


To engage our audiences in the appreciation of art, history, and culture of the Inland Northwest and beyond, through collection stewardship, exhibitions, and programs that enrich and inspire.


The MAC's leadership, staff, and volunteers are committed to operating transparently and with integrity in all matters, honoring our commitments, listening with empathy, and being approachable, inclusive, and respectful of others.
