RAM’s Wustum Museum continues a Racine tradition with the opening of Wisconsin Photography 2012—a statewide competition organized by the museum since 1979. Thanks to the support of state photographers, the exhibition continues to introduce the museum’s visitors to a wide range of photographic media and artists’ viewpoints.
Of 862 pieces submitted by 87 artists, less than a quarter of the pieces were chosen for this year’s show. The exhibition’s juror Dean Otto, Associate Curator, Film/Video at Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, selected the 118 images represented in Wisconsin Photography 2012.
