RAM’s First 20 Years: A Visual History of the Art and Architecture

June 17, 2023

10:00am
 - 4:00pm

RAM’s First 20 Years is a visual summary of the art and architecture that helped shape the early chapters of Racine Art Museum, home of North America’s largest contemporary craft collection. The exhibition blends objects from RAM’s holdings with photographs of both the building designed by Brininstool + Lynch and the galleries filled with art.

Celebrating an anniversary often involves an assessment of where things are and where they could be relative to where they were. RAM is an institution focused on creativity and vision and the building reflects that. Looking back at what motivated design plans and architectural concepts provides background for considering future objectives.

While RAM’s collection has grown exponentially since the museum was first built, it is still rooted in the kind of work that encouraged the overall design. In addition, certain facets have been expanded such as the rotating exhibition series that occurs in the Windows on Fifth gallery on the south side of the museum’s ground floor. While it was originally intended to focus on artists working with clay, metal, and glass, various exhibitions have included found objects, fibers, and natural materials.

Open now through July 20, 2024.
