Racine Art Museum WI
Founded in 1938, the Racine Art Museum (RAM) is dedicated to the exhibition, education, collection and preservation of contemporary visual arts. RAM houses one of North America's most significant collections of contemporary crafts. With a permanent collection of more than 3,500 objects, half of these pieces represent the museum's focus on contemporary crafts from internationally recognized artists in ceramics, fibers, glass, metals and wood. Exhibitions at RAM emphasize ideas behind the artwork, rather than following strict media categories. RAM also plays a vital role in arts education through Wustum Museum, where it offers community outreach programs, studio art classes and workshops taught by regionally and nationally known artists working in craft media.
