The Racine Art Museum Welcomes New Board Members

The Racine Art Museum Association (RAMA) welcomes four new members to its Board of Directors. They include: Kurt Lakatos, Sandra Shove, Julie Lang, and Kevin Pearson. Both Lang and Pearson filled unexpired terms in September 2010 before starting their initial three-year term in May 2011.


The Board of Directors also elected new officers for the coming year. The 2011-12 RAMA officers are: Stephanie Lazzeroni, President; Susan Boland, Vice President; James Walker, Secretary; and Kraig Bryant, Treasurer.


"We are grateful to our new Board members for their expertise, guidance and leadership. They represent RAMA's commitment to ensuring diverse interests and perspectives that assist our organization in better serving our audience and the community," said Bruce W. Pepich, RAM Executive Director and Curator of Collections.  "We look forward to working with them."


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.
