Update on COVID-19 Response:
Racine Art Museum and RAM's Wustum Museum are temporarily closed to the public

The health and safety of our community is always our highest priority. Given the dynamic public health situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) and the importance of encouraging social distancing, Racine Art Museum (RAM) and RAM's Wustum Museum of Fine Arts will temporarily be closed to the public until further notice.

In response to the directives issued by the Governor of Wisconsin's office to limit the spread of COVID-19 and the guidance of public health experts provided to safeguard the health and safety of our community, RAM staff and Board of Directors made the difficult decision to make the following adjustments:

  • RAM and Wustum Galleries are temporarily closed to the public until further notice.
  • Studio classes, outreach programs, and other scheduled events are postponed until further notice.
  • Racine and Vicinity Show 2020: All Media Juried Competition has been canceled. Therefore, art drop-off in mid-April has also been canceled.
  • The RAM 11th Annual International PEEPS Art Exhibition will be postponed, with new show dates from Sunday, May 10 through Sunday, May 24, 2020. The rescheduled dates offer the bonuses of celebrating Spring, RAM's 17th Anniversary, and Mother's Day.
  • The PEEPS Artist Preview and Award Ceremony will now take place on Saturday, May 9, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm, with Awards announced at Noon.
  • Need something fun to do with your family during the social distancing? Please feel free to make—or continue making—artwork made with or representing marshmallow PEEPS. Here's the updated entry and drop-off information.
  • Any PEEPS artwork that has already been delivered will be safely stored at RAM until the new dates.
  • The dates and content of current and future exhibitions at RAM and RAM's Wustum Museum may be required to change. If needed, participating artists will be contacted directly.

RAM is monitoring this rapidly changing situation closely and will announce any further updates through regular channels, including email, website, and social media.

If you would like to continue to help support RAM's and Wustum's efforts during this challenging time, we would greatly appreciate it.
