Home/Current Exhibitions

Due to the dynamic nature of COVID-19, the dates and content of current and future exhibitions at RAM and RAM’s Wustum Museum may be required to change. Any updates to these exhibitions will be announced through regular channels, including website, email, and social media. If needed, participating artists will be contacted directly.

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.

FUTURE EXHIBITIONS
PAST EXHIBITIONS
CALL FOR ARTISTS

Component Parts: Artworks Made of Multiple Elements

Drawn from RAM’s collection, the two and three-dimensional works in this exhibition are united by conceptual choices in presentation yet they reflect a variety of perspectives and subject matter—from cultural, historical, and domestic issues to material and formal investigations.

Location: Racine Art Museum| Dates: June 2, 2021 – February 12, 2022|

Alien Invasion: (Un)Familiar Forms in Contemporary Art

This exhibition features objects and images from the museum’s collection that are both fantastical and familiar. The contemporary artists whose works are featured—many of whom use the natural world as inspiration—do not shy away from the oversized, dramatic, or intriguing.

Location: Racine Art Museum| Dates: July 21, 2021 – January 22, 2022|

Alien Invasion: RAM Virtual Community Art Show

Get a Bead On: Jewelry and Small Objects

Location: Racine Art Museum| Dates: July 21, 2021 – January 22, 2022|

Playful/Pensive: Contemporary Artists and Contemporary Issues

The artworks included in this exhibition are either playful or thought-provoking, and sometimes both—seeming lighthearted at first but ultimately speaking to deeper, more complex issues. Constructed of materials, such as ceramic and glass, that can withstand the demanding conditions of RAM’s Windows on Fifth gallery, these works reflect personal, social, and cultural issues and ideas in sometimes unexpected ways.

Location: Racine Art Museum| Dates: August 6, 2021 – July 9, 2022|

Collection Focus: Mara Superior

This exhibition debuts a recent acquisition of 31 pieces by the contemporary American ceramic artist Mara Superior.

Location: Racine Art Museum| Dates: August 18, 2021 – January 15, 2022|

RAM Holiday Tree 2021

Soaring in front of the view of Lake Michigan, the illuminated conifer is adorned with over 1,500 glass ornaments from a variety of time periods and subjects—many from late Racine, Wisconsin gallerist and arts supporter Emile H. Mathis II’s collection. Visitors are encouraged to look for unique decorations like octopi and soup cans fashioned in glass alongside more traditional festive creations.
