About RAM

The Racine Art Museum holds the largest and most significant contemporary craft collection in North America, with more than 9,500 objects from nationally and internationally recognized artists. The mission of the Racine Art Museum is to exhibit, collect, preserve, and educate in the contemporary visual arts. It is the museum's goal to elevate the stature of craft to fine arts by presenting ceramics, fibers, glass, metals, polymer, and wood alongside paintings and sculptures.

The museum plays a vital role in arts education through RAM's Wustum Museum, where it offers community outreach programsstudio art classes and workshops taught by regionally and nationally known artists working in craft media.
