All the Buzz Bugathon

On Friday, July 2, Milwaukee-based Radio Disney AM 1640 will bring its Road Show to the Racine Art Museum in Downtown Racine, WI, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. The museum is partnering with the youth-oriented radio network to highlight RAM's All the Buzz Bugathon event starting on Main Street at 6:30 pm. Everyone is invited to participate in the Bugathon by dressing as their favorite bugs. Then, walking, crawling, or scattering down Main Street towards the finish line at Monument Square.
Participants can be lone bugs or part of a bug family. Day care centers, day campers and workplace and club groups are encouraged to arrive in costume for a bug infestation. For a smooth getaway, Bugathoners can create Bugmobiles using non-motorized vehicles, such as bicycles, tricycles, wagons, strollers or scooters! Great prizes will be awarded to the Creepiest, the Most Realistic, and the Most Artistic of all the costumed bugs. In addition, the Best Bugmobile and the Best Group Effort will be rewarded. The Best Overall Adult or Kid Bug that day will win rides in Racine's famous Fourth of July Parade on Monday, July 5th.
Younger bug racers and families will gather at
Main and Fourth Streets, Downtown Racine
by 6:30 pm.

Adult bugs and bug groups will meet at
Main and Third Streets, Downtown Racine
by 6:45 pm.

Get Glowing! Get Buzzing!
Get your Bug On, and GO! 


All the Buzz: Insects Invade RAM
This summer, the Racine Art Museum has been invaded by insects - as depicted by contemporary artists. All the Buzz, inside RAM, features an exciting array of exhibitions and programming that highlight these crawling, flying, hovering, and often times, beautiful creatures at both museum locations. Visit www.ramart.org to discover a variety of other bug-related activities and family-friendly events scheduled throughout the summer.


Together, the two campuses of the Racine Art Museum, RAM in downtown Racine at 441 Main Street and the Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts at 2519 Northwestern Avenue, seek to elevate the stature of contemporary crafts to that of fine art by exhibiting significant works in craft media with painting, sculpture and photography, while providing outstanding educational art programming.

Docent led contemporary craft and architectural tours of the museums are available. Both campuses of the Racine Art Museum, are open to the public Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm, and are closed Mondays, Federal holidays and Easter. RAM is open Sunday Noon - 5:00 pm, while Wustum is closed Sundays. An admission fee of $5 for adults, with reduced fees for students and seniors, applies at RAM. Admission to Wustum is free. Members are always admitted without charge to either campus.
