Wisconsin Photography 2022

August 31 – November 26, 2022
at RAM’s Wustum Museum

RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts continues a significant museum tradition with Wisconsin Photography 2022. This unique biennial exhibition has a jurying process similar to a portfolio review—the juror selects the artists as well as a representative body of their work.

The juror for this year’s show is John Simmons, ASC, a renowned photographer and videographer from Los Angeles, California. Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Simmons began working as a photographer for The Chicago Defender newspaper at age 15. After leaving Chicago, he studied fine art at Fisk University, Nashville, Tennessee; and completed his MFA in cinematography at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. Simmons’ photographs are held in collections across the country, including the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California; Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, Massachusetts; and the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia.

Multiple Purchase Awards to acquire photographs for the museum’s collection will be awarded during the Awards Presentation and Opening Reception on Tuesday, August 30 at 6:00 pm. This free public event is scheduled to take place in-person at RAM’s Wustum Museum but may shift to a virtual presentation depending on the state of the pandemic at the time.
