Top 10 at 10: Favorites from RAM’s Collection

May 12 - October 6, 2013

Voting Results

Since opening in 2003, Racine Art Museum’s collection of craft and works on paper has almost quadrupled over the last 10 years, from 2,200 to almost 8,000 pieces. This is an extraordinary accomplishment made possible by generous friends of RAM and Wustum, including new and returning visitors to both campuses.

In celebration of RAM's 10th anniversary, the museum is dedicating 2013 to acknowledging the importance of the local community in building, maintaining, and growing an institution. To honor these connections, RAM is encouraging the public to vote on what collection pieces they find most inspiring or interesting. Over 100 works from the collection will be displayed in the galleries and our visitors will get the chance to pick their “Top 10.” Winning pieces will then be highlighted in RAM’s gallery spaces as well as on the website.
