Racine Art Museum will host several one-day Guest Artists-in-Residence in 2017. As part of RAM's commitment to support local and regional artists, it provides programming that helps cultivate emerging talents in Southeastern Wisconsin and opportunities for creatives to work and grow in this region.

Thank you to the Art Seed Grant and Racine Arts Council for their generous support of this program.
