RAM and RAM's Wustum Museum are open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 4:00 pm.

RAM is pleased to observe the easing of some COVID-19 restrictions including the cancellation of the City's mask mandate. However, we encourage all museum visitors and staff who have not been fully vaccinated, and those who feel more comfortable wearing a mask, to continue doing so in public areas at RAM and RAM's Wustum Museum. Masks are still required for some in-person art classes at Wustum.

Current Exhibitions

Presenting work from artists who create meaningful statements in craft media, RAM dispels any differentiation between fine art and craft and between the artist and the craftsperson. Exhibitions at RAM emphasize ideas behind the artwork, rather than following strict media categories.

All shows at RAM change two to three times each year. Exhibitions are currently being drawn almost exclusively from RAM’s extensive and dynamic collection.

RAM’s Collection

The Racine Art Museum has the largest contemporary craft collection in the United States. Over the last 10 years, RAM’s holdings have almost quadrupled, from 2,200 to close to 10,000 works. Over half of these pieces represent the museum’s focus on contemporary craft from internationally recognized artists—with concentrations in ceramics, fibers, glass, metals, art jewelry, polymer, and wood.

The other portion of RAM’s collection is a regionally significant holding of works on paper—prints, drawings, watercolor, and photography, as well as artists’ books—from the 1930s to the present.
