Implementation of a critical finding from MNA’s spring 2016 Deeper Planning Grant project supported by the Flinn Foundation, which underscored MNA’s need to revitalize and better target its programming, validating MNA’s decision to open its Native Peoples of the Colorado Plateau permanent exhibition; a commercial kitchen and café would complement and expand that exhibition’s “Foodways” section to inspire a broader audience to engage in MNA’s mission to celebrate, honor, and protect the region’s natural and cultural heritage. This Implementation Grant is awarded under the Foundation’s arts-and-culture Initiative for Financial and Creative Health.
