Mission Statement
Needs Statement
LeMoyne was founded in 1963, and has operated continuously since its founding. There have been many challenges through the years, number one of which is funding for all the programs that LeMoyne provides our community.
LeMoyne still faces funding challenges, especially since the turn in the economy, which forced LeMoyne to downsize its staff to make ends meet. With the help of many talented volunteers, this approach has sustained LeMoyne through some very lean years, but in order for LeMoyne to truly reach its potential as the premier art institution in our region, LeMoyne must find the funds to hire the proper staff, eliminate debt from past years, move into a more appropriate and sustainable facility and be able to fully focus on its mission.
  1. Funding - with better funding, LeMoyne can hire the staff needed to meet the demands for the highly acclaimed education programs and exhibitions which LeMoyne provides year round.  A development coordinator is needed to assist LeMoyne in recruiting sponsors and members and in thanking those patrons and developing and nurturing good relationships with the community.
  2. A paid volunteer coordinator is needed to recruit and schedule the hundreds of volunteers who keep LeMoyne running with donated time.
  3. A curator is needed to plan and execute the best in exhibitions, tying exhibitions to educational opportunities and to promoting the best artists in our region, while helping art collectors find the right pieces for their collections.
  4. LeMoyne's current facilities are old. In fact, they are historically old, needing a great deal of renovations and maintenance. These facilities are not ideal for showing art, as they are not fully climate controlled, and are very expensive to heat and cool. A new location which is easily accessible, well located for the public to visit, has ample parking, and is planned appropriately for a visual arts center is desperately needed.  LeMoyne has been trying to sell its current buildings for the past 4 years.
Impact Statement
LeMoyne has been very busy meeting the challenges presented with the economic downturn and turning those challenges into opportunities. Over the past few years LeMoyne has:
  1. Eliminated all debt except property mortgages. Consolidated mortgages and renegotiated with the bank for excellent terms for repayment
  2. Created a business plan that can be followed to allow LeMoyne to continue to grow in strength
  3. Recruited active, contributing board members who have guided LeMoyne towards achieving its goals
Future goals include:
  1. To continue to strengthen the financial stability of LeMoyne
  2. To sell the existing properties owned by LeMoyne, pay off the mortgages and secure a new facility which is more sustainable and appropriate for LeMoyne's mission.
  3. To increase memberships and LeMoyne's reach in the community
Background Statement
Founded in 1963, LeMoyne is Tallahassee's oldest and longest continually running art gallery and art education center. Through exhibitions of LeMoyne's impressive permanent collection of artworks and changing exhibitions, the public is engaged to view, enjoy and purchase art that enhances and enriches their lives. The careers of professional and aspiring artists are fostered through the sale of art works, with the artist and LeMoyne sharing proceeds, and through exhibitions and classes.
LeMoyne encourages appreciation and understanding of the visual arts, as well as participating in community-wide artistic projects, through a wide range of educational and exhibit-related programs. Wide public participation is supported through open access to exhibits, and competitive and need-based scholarships. LeMoyne serves the public good as a major player in Tallahassee's quality of life.
LeMoyne advances the arts culture of Tallahassee and the surrounding region through active collaboration and cooperation with other community and arts organizations. With a focus on inclusive and varied programs that appeal to a large constituency, LeMoyne partners with area school systems, the Council on Culture and Arts, the Master Craftsman Studio, FSU School of Art, the FAMU Foster Tanner Gallery, and it provides internship placements for students from FSU and FAMU.
LeMoyne provides:
  1. Education Programs for all ages, year round, including studio classes for adults and teens and Holiday, Spring Break and Summer Art Camps for kids
  2. The Annual LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival
  3. Ongoing Art Exhibitions
  4. The Annual Holiday Art Show and Sale
  5. The Annual Art & Soul Celebration honoring our volunteers and presentation of the Richard L. Puckett Patron of the Arts Award
  6. A wide variety of art related services to individuals and organizations such as off site galleries in the Hotel Duval, Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, Temple Israel and others.

CEO Statement/Executive Director Statement LeMoyne is an important part of the Tallahassee cultural scene and has been for 50 years. We have come through the tough times and are on positive ground and gaining towards a fabulous future. With several off site locations to exhibit and advance the careers of local and area artists, direct lines can be drawn from the numerous establishments that hang and display art directly to LeMoyne through the affiliations with the artists to exposure they have received, education, and contacts they have made because of LeMoyne. LeMoyne is the community.
A premier two-day fine art festival held in Tallahassee's historic downtown Chain of Parks. More than 150 artists from all over the US and abroad display their original works of art for an audience of over 45,000 visitors, who attend the festival during the third weekend in April. 
The Festival was started in 2000, and is held annually. Along with the artists, the Festival provides a venue for live entertainment, dining in the park with a wide array of delicious foods, as well as beer and wine. 
The Festival also provides a training ground for emerging artists to display their works, and learn about selling their works at a festival.  Community organizations are able to provide information about their organizations, and meet with the many visitors at the Festival. The Festival is a much anticipated cultural event in our region and serves as LeMoyne's number one fundraiser, with all proceeds from the Festival going to support LeMoyne's education programs and exhibitions.

Short Term Success
In its 13th year (2013), the Festival has achieved national recognition as a fine art festival for which artists from all over the country apply to participate. 
Some short-term goals for emproving the festival include:
  1. Increasing the quality and variety of art presented at the Festival
  2. Increasing the awareness of the Festival throughout the region to increase visitors and support
  3. Increasing the financial support for the Festival with a goal of raising $100,000 each year for LeMoyne
  4. Continuing to increase artist satisfaction with their experience at the Festival
  5. Continuing to increase visitor satisfaction with the Festival
Long term Success
The LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival is a success when we achieve the following:
  1. Professional fine artists apply and attend the Festival providing visitors with a wide variety of art to see and purchase.
  2. Tens of thousands of visitors attend the Festival, bringing visitors to downtown Tallahassee and enjoying the art, entertainment, food and community offered at the Festival.
  3. Sponsors of the Festival and advertisers in the Festival Magazine continue to support the Festival, by providing cash and in-kind donations which pay for the Festival costs, and provide proceeds to be used to sustain LeMoyne and its mission.
  4. The Festival provides opportunities for local and regional artists to display and sell their works in a professional fine art festival setting.
  5. The community embraces the Festival as a part of what Tallahassee has to offer for cultural enrichment and enjoyment.
Program Success Monitored By
Each year the success of the Festival is measured in the following ways:
  1. Number of artist applications received
  2. Quality of artists applying for the Festival
  3. Number of visitors to the Festival (reported by Tallahassee Police Department)
  4. Number of sponsors and advertisers
  5. Amount of funds raised through the Festival for LeMoyne
  6. Satisfaction of the artist with their experience at the Festival, which is measured through an artist survey given to each artist
  7. Satisfaction of the visitors to the Festival, which is measured through personal interviews, comments on Facebook and general buzz in the community during and after the Festival.
Examples of Program Success
There has been significant evidence of the growth and success of the Festival over the past few years: 
  1. One change which was initiated in 2011 for the 12th Annual Chain of Parks Art Festival was to move to a web based application process for artists. ZAPP.com is the application website for our festival, and it has increased significantly the number of artists applying for the Festival.
  2. In 2012, the fundraising through sponsorships saw a 50% increase from the prior year! This is a significant success and one which the Festival committee will continue to build on.
  3. The Festival Committee continues to attract talented volunteers, who have taken on the various tasks involved in planning the Festival. This has lead to a significant increase in the quality of the entertainment and food vendors at the Festival.
  4. A new layout for the Festival was initiated in 2012. The entertainment stage, food court and food vendors were moved to the center of Calhoun Street, which provided a central hub of activity for the Festival and was very positively embraced by all attendees.
  5. In 2012 the Festival Committee received many calls from the community asking to participate in the Festival. This was a major turnaround, signalling that the community has embraced the Festival and that awareness is growing.
Hosting, coordinating, and assisting exhibitors with curating, LeMoyne staff manages ongoing art exhibits on a year round basis, all of which are open to the public. Shows may feature an individual artist, an arts organization, or a combination of both. Each show includes an opening reception open to the public. Some shows include gallery talks by exhibiting artists. Students visit and tour the gallery during shows, and educational presentations are provided by staff.
The impact of some shows is expanded by engaging the community in activities associated with exhibits. LeMoyne periodically partners with local non-profits for a show opening, providing the non-profit a venue to share information about their programs and services.

Program Success Monitored By Review of attendance information
Examples of Program Success Attendance at exhibits and artist interest/requests to show at LeMoyne are indicators of the success of the exhibits program.  
LeMoyne Art Education is focused on increasing awareness, appreciation, and participation with the visual arts. This is accomplished through a variety of different programs and events intended to appeal to diverse audiences throughout our community. Included are the following programs:
Studio Art: quarterly studio art classes, both weekend workshops and eight week courses, offered in various mediums
Summer, Spring and Winter Art Camps: Full or half-day studio art camps offered for students, ages 6-12 and 13-17, during school breaks
Pre-K Art Spark: free art making activities for students ages 3-5, offered every third Saturday
Art Delivery: provides free art educational opportunities for students of all ages throughout the Big Bend area, including on-site art activities and art talks
Art for All Scholarship Program: seeks to make Studio Art and Art Camp experiences available to interested students who demonstrate financial need
Gallery Guided Tours: tours are provided for groups interested in the history of LeMoyne and the changing visual art exhibits on display

Short Term Success We measure short-term success of a studio art program based on the confidence level of participants in artistic ability. Oftentimes this requires the students to acknowledge the level of the skills and time needed in order to fully master a particular method. Another factor in determining the short-term success of a program is to record and analyze the number of returning students.
Long term Success The overall mission of LeMoyne is to promote and advance education, interest and participation in the contemporary visual arts. LeMoyne’s Art Education Program is designed to cultivate creativity, and to foster a creative and hands-on learning environment for students of all ages. Ideally, this would provide a community that is well educated in the visual arts, and knowledgeable of the profound impact the visual arts has on community culture. In addition, LeMoyne would be able to invite several nationally renowned artists to give lectures and demonstrations on a more regular basis. Our Art for All Scholarship Program would be able to service a stronger number of students who qualify to receive funds.
Program Success Monitored By At the conclusion of each class, evaluation forms are transmitted to each student. Feedback from the evaluations is used in planning and designing future classes. Another source of measuring success is unsolicited letters from class participants. These assessments and evaluations are integral to insuring that LeMoyne continues to provide high quality art education and instruction. Occasionally, we do receive reviews that alert us to particulars issues regarding class instruction techniques and/or studio needs.
Examples of Program Success
A simple and concrete level of success is the number of students attending educational programming. 2011 enrollment reached 665, and the average enrollment from 2006 – 2010 was 580. The winter 2011 session enrollment was the largest ever, and some classes had waiting lists. Two other success factors are the high number of returning students (over 63 students have registered for multiple classes in different sessions), and students who are ardent fans of particular instructors. As an example, classes offered by Dean Gioia and Natalia Andreeva consistently have a waiting list for each session.
Another interesting and exciting success factor is seeing students start out in primary education programs and follow-through all the way to Teen Foundations. Additionally, students, both youth and adults, become volunteers, increasing and expanding volunteer support that is so vital to LeMoyne’s continued growth and success.
For over 25 years, LeMoyne has hosted this prestegious high school student art exhibition and competition. It provides young aspiring artists with the opportunity to show their art in a professional gallery, and to receive awards for outstanding works.
The brainchild of Mahaska Whitley, a former art teacher at Leon High School, this exhibition includes all area high schools and over 200 submissions of student art by their art teachers. The exhibition is the most highly attended of the year, other than the Annual Holiday Show. It also provides scholarships to students whose art work is chosen for awards in the competition.
Each year LeMoyne, with the continued help of Mrs. Whitley, coordinates the submissions from the teachers, curates the art work, raises funds for refreshments at the opening and awards ceremony, and solicits community members to provide the numerous scholarships which are awarded to the students. Participating in this competition is many art students' most memorable experience of their high school years.

Short Term Success
All the students who participate in the program realize that they have accomplished success in their artistic endeavors. Self esteem and confidence is increased due to the public display of their art in a prestigious, professional art gallery.
Long term Success
The program is designed to give high school students a professional venue to display their art work, and to participate in an art competition. The experience of having one's art work displayed for the public to see in such a setting is a boost to the confidence and esteem of these young people. All students are appreciated for their work. The entry into the competition is recognized as an accomplishement. Those who go on to win in various categories of media also receive scholarships, which they are able to use toward their higher educational goals.
These are the accomplishments of this program. They are achieved every year the show is held. The tracking of the success is not done through data. Rather, it is tracked through the reactions and comments of the participating students, their repeated participation throughout their high school career, and their continued pursuit of careers in art.
Program Success Monitored By
Success is monitored through:
  • the participation numbers of the students
  • the attendance of families and other visitors to the exhibition and awards ceremony
  • the number of scholarships awarded to the students.

Organization Comments LeMoyne continues to work towards securing its financial future, most recently by renegotiating building mortgage agreements with our lender, to provide affordable monthly payments and a realistic time frame for the Board of Directors to establish LeMoyne's "next steps." Additionally, LeMoyne's Board of Directors has been proactive during 2012 in repaying non-mortgage debt as nonrecurring funding becomes available, in order to limit future monthly cash flow needs to protect against unforeseen cash flow shortages. LeMoyne is heavily dependent on donations from special events (such as Chain of Parks, the Holiday Show, Art and Soul, Exhibitions, etc) in addition to recurring memberships and class tuition fees.
