RAM Artist Fellowship Recipients

Sponsored by the Osborne and Scekic Family Foundation

RAM is pleased to announce the 2018 RAM Artist Fellowship recipients. Applications were received from 31 artists and the final 4 recipients were selected based on the quality of artwork submitted representing a range of styles and media. 

The RAM Artist Fellowship Program aims to showcase the diversity and vitality of the Racine/Kenosha visual arts community by supporting the professional development of its artists. The goal is to distinguish the region as a place that values the arts, and enhance the area’s desirability as a place for artists to work and live.

Concurrent solo exhibitions featuring each recipient's work will be presented at RAM's Wustum Museum of Fine Arts beginning August 23, 2019. A color brochure will accompany this fellowship show. By increasing critical attention and exposure for recipients, the program fosters their continued creative and professional development.

The fourth biennial exhibition features the work of the following artists:

Alex Mandli, Racine

Crystal Neubauer, Kenosha

Marilyn Propp, Kenosha

Amy Misurelli Sorensen, Kenosha

In recognition of these four artists who are at different stages of their careers and are creating outstanding work, each will be awarded $2,500. The fellowships may be used for any expenses that will assist in the development of new work and advance their artistic careers, e.g. equipment and supply purchases, studio rental, travel, etc.

The next RAM Artist Fellowship application deadline will be in January 2020.
