Why did their founders choose not to go the more common route of incorporating as a nonprofit? Are they actually making money? The museum launched in as a for-profit company. Dan Gluck: Our mission is to advocate for open discourse about sex and sexuality, and to present the best current scholarship about sex and sexuality to the widest possible audience. I wanted to educate and inform the themuseumovsex about subjects they may not otherwise engage with and I wanted to do so in New York City, which has a sexual history unlike any other city.

The sexual diversity of New York has come at a high personal and legal cost to many—their stories deserve to be heard. Our advisory board is a resource for exhibition development, networking, and general advice and guidance.

Also, we felt that funding and donors might be problematic. And at the time, it was hard to raise philanthropic gifts because very few people themuseumofsex lend their name to the organization. That might be different now. Also, not being nonprofit offered a certain freedom. When we launched, there were tyemuseumofsex from the Catholic League echoes of protests to the Sensation exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum twenty years ago.

And frankly, if we were themhseumofsex tax-exempt nonprofit, the people who objected to our work could have a valid claim as taxpayers about how their money is used. Within the context of a private venture, there is nothing people can do about it. Besides, there are some creative advantages to being a private company. Nonprofit status comes with certain bureaucratic complexities, including themuseumofsex need to navigate the concerns of the people on the board. We felt that the subject of sex is so politically charged that it might be difficult to do what we wanted to do.

For us, themuseumofsex a private company affords the ability to be more creatively nimble. DG: Themuseumofsex many years themuseumofdex we launched, we were just trying to stay alive. We had next to no money when we started, and a low-quality space. We started with ten thousand square feet total, now we are up to twenty-four thousand with a new gallery coming in the next six to seven months. We incurred a lot of debt to start up and to grow, and our next financial challenge is that we have to be able to show we can pay off that debt in a reasonable time.

Then we can start eyeing what happens next—maybe opening another location. The costs to operate a second site could be significantly less. Right now, the work we do for a given exhibition has a short shelf life—with more than one site, exhibitions themuseumodsex circulate to reach more people. DG: I gave up a lot to start the museum! I used the money we took in to pay the staff. I themuseimofsex that sometimes nonprofit museum professionals think that they have a harder deal than people in the for-profit sector.

But people starting a private business often make less money, with no benefits, than people with a nonprofit job. Doing this work is taking a chance on the future.

Most small business people make sacrifices to create their companies and build it up to a point, but it may never pay off. DG: We created the nonprofit Thejuseumofsex Foundation, which holds the title to what collections we themuseumofsex have. But as it turns out, we are not really a collecting museum; we are more like a kunsthalle. Also, our subject matter is so themuseumofsex it would be hard to assemble a collection that addressed the subject as comprehensively as we envision.

Our model is to work with other museums and other collectors to recontextualize their work. At some point, we might rethink this. Right now Muse is just a shell, with very little activity, but my hope is that it might eventually be a place to house the collection, a base from which they could travel at some point, and might include a research library.

Some of the funds the themuseumofsex generates could be thwmuseumofsex to support the foundation. On the other hand, we could give the money we raise to an existing organization, like the Kinsey Institute. They already have extensive collections and archives. DG: We are about to launch a major exhibition called Super Funland. The Museum of Sex combines educational content with immersive experience.

It balances the tension of high and low. Some but not all our exhibitions are purely didactic, but all have an emphasis on design and experience. We hope Super Funland will become an attendance driver. There is one gallery that explores its licentious history, then two floors of commissioned art pieces.

We challenged designers to create sexually charged carnival games. Just like Cirque de Soleil rethought the whole model and created a new kind of circus, the Museum of Sex is rethinking the carnival.

If Super Funland is successful, we can use the income it generates to fund the other stuff we want to do that may not have mass appeal. Super Funland could become the attendance driver, and then in the same space we have exhibits on themuseumofsex issues, like sex and religion.

Exhibits with a popular draw can finance mission. Themuseumofsex In the future, the biggest role for museums like the Museum of Sex may be to showcase hidden and important collections from other museums and collectors.

Traditional museums can specialize in preservation and use organizations like the Museum of Sex as a revenue source which is fully in line with their missions. Your email address will not be published.
