Racine Art Museum Association, Inc. is dedicated to the exhibition, education, collection and preservation of contemporary visual arts.
Presenting work from artists who create meaningful statements in craft media, RAM dispels any differentiation between fine arts and crafts and between the artist and the craftsperson. Exhibitions at RAM emphasize ideas behind the artwork, rather than following strict media categories. RAM also plays a vital role in arts education through Wustum Museum, where it offers community outreach programs, studio art classes and workshops taught by regionally and nationally known artists working in craft media.
The Racine Art Museum and RAM's Wustum Museum are located in Racine, Wisconsin, a historic community on the shores of Lake Michigan. Racine is a city with a tradition of supporting art and architecture. It is home to Frank Lloyd Wright's SC Johnson Wax Administration Building, as well as several Wright homes including Wingspread, which was built for the Johnson family.
