Wisconsin Artists: 1960-90
Racine Art Museum
Sep. 20, 2023 - Feb. 3, 2023
This exhibition surveys art in Wisconsin from 1960 to 1990. Not only was this an exceptionally fertile time in the history of a state with a (surprising to some) rich and layered history of creative production, it is the period Don Reitz—an artist with a concurrent exhibition at RAM—taught in the ceramics department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The goals of the exhibition are not to define this work relative to the region but to showcase it both as a way to contextualize the work of Reitz and to celebrate those involved in building the legacy of art in this state, especially in the years leading up to the establishment of RAM and its 2003 opening.
Open now through February 3, 2024.
