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.

Collection Focus: Frances and Michael Higgins

In the late 1940s, contemporary glass production was given new energy as Frances and Michael Higgins reinvigorated the ancient practice of glass fusing. Racine Art Museum recently established an archive collection of 75 works created collaboratively and individually by the Higginses.
