The Racine Art Museum has the largest craft collection in the United States. Over the last 10 years RAM’s holdings have almost quadrupled, from 2,200 to over 9,500 pieces. Over half of these pieces represent the museum’s focus on contemporary crafts from internationally recognized artists in ceramics, fibers, glass, metals, polymer, and wood.
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.
Racine Art Museum and 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.
