About Face: RAM Community Art Show

June 8 - August 10, 2019

About Face: RAM Community Art Show at Racine Art Museum's Wustum Museum of Fine Arts invited local artists to investigate portraiture, and put their best face forward. The resulting community exhibition showcases innovative artwork by RAM's students, active volunteers, teachers, and staff, in addition to Racine Unified School District teachers and Racine Art Guild members.

About Face features work created by area families and art students on view side-by-side with well-known regional artists who teach or work at the museums. The exhibition of 119 pieces by 119 artists includes a wide range of media that reflects the stunning variety of different workshops and classes taught at RAM's Wustum Museum.
