Plan now for a group tour to the Racine Art Museum (RAM), where guests will be introduced to the current exhibitions at both museum locations by trained docents. Experience art from a whole new perspective and learn all about the artists, the media, and the techniques involved in the creation of the artworks on display. Because most shows at RAM change two times each year and there are no galleries solely dedicated to the permanent collection, every visit is a fresh, new experience.
RAM’s downtown location at 441 Main Street, Racine, Wisconsin, holds the largest and most significant contemporary craft collection in North America, with 11,000 objects from nationally and internationally recognized artists. RAM’s mission is to elevate the stature of craft to fine arts by presenting ceramics, fibers, glass, metals, polymer, and wood alongside paintings and sculptures. The museum was built with accessible entryways, bathrooms, and elevators to accommodate visitors of all abilities.
RAM’s Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts (Wustum) is located less than two miles from the downtown campus at 2519 Northwestern Avenue. Wustum has been home to nationally recognized annual exhibitions since the early 1980s. Each show is designed to emphasize the common ideas shared by local and regional participating artists. The Wustum campus consists of 13 acres of park, a one-acre formal garden, and an 1856 Italianate-style farmhouse that houses the exhibitions.
Both campuses work together to create a wonderful art experience.
