Notes:

[1]. Until August 31, 2006, the Taft Museum of Art was owned by the Cincinnati Institute of Fine Arts (CIFA), administered by CIFA’s Board of Trustees, and governed by the Taft Museum Board of Overseers. On September 1, 2006, the Museum legally separated from CIFA and began operations as its own incorporated 501(c)(3) entity. This separate incorporation led to the transfer to the separate entity after August 31, 2006 of all tangible assets comprising the Taft collection.
