Registration Opens for RAM’s Symposium


The Racine Art Museum has just opened registration for Polymer: The Journey to New Terrain, a symposium to be held Friday, October 21 – Sunday, October 23 at The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread, a 14,000 square-foot home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s. For detailed information and registration forms please read on.

As our readers know, RAM has received a major collection of artworks created in polymer to establish this material in it’s permanent collection. They will debut the arrival of these gifts with the exhibition, TERRA NOVA: Polymer Art at the Crossroads opening October 21, 2011

RAM has planned a very special weekend to celebrate the exhibition and the accompanying 140-page book published by the museum.

You can participate in these festivities in a number of different ways. Go to RAM’s website for detailed information, schedules and to access reservation forms.

I cannot remember a time in my life that I wasn't interested in looking at art, talking about art and the making of art. In 1990 I earned a Phd in art history at the University of Maryland. My first experiences with polymer clay were in 1992, but I consider my real work with the medium to date from 1999.
