Major Technology Grant Awarded From 
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana

 

The Museum is pleased to announce that Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana (TMMI) has awarded a 30,000 

grant for an exciting project. Director of development Susan Washburn, docent president Cindy Warren, and past president Cheryl Marshall prepared the grant proposal. Museum trustee Tom Witten served as a key advisor and notified the Museum of the grant award.

The funded project, which will provide wireless internet for the entire Museum and new network capability for the Museum’s computers, will be called The Toyota Interactive Museum Experience. The grant will make operational an educational video project produced during a year-long partnership between the Evansville Museum, Ivy Tech Community College, the EvansvilleVanderburgh School Corporation, and the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center. Over 7,500 hours in planning, video production and editing have been donated by the schools. Members of the Museum’s Docent Association have volunteered over 300 hours to the project. 

The Toyota Interactive Museum Experience will allow Museum visitors smart phone access to videos in which the Museum’s docents, curators, and visiting artists discuss the work of art or historical artifact that the visitor is viewing in the gallery. The grant will fund the purchase of 15 hand held devices for school students and visitors to borrow during their time at the Museum.
