Enjoy some art. 

The Racine Art Museum (RAM) is a wonderful place to spend a winter's day. The works of various contemporary arts are purposely paired in the exhibition "Duets: RAM Pairs Contemporary Craft Artists." These visually or conceptually related works are shown side by side to simultaneously highlight similarities and differences. "Duets" may be viewed at RAM through Sunday, Jan. 22. On display in RAM's Windows on Fifth galley, Wisconsin artist Jessica Calderwood presents "Fictitious Flora." These provocative two- and three-dimensional works reflect the artist's interest in investigating gender, symbolism and issues of aggression, peace and social responsibility. "Fictitious Flora" runs through July 23. RAM is open Tuesday through Sunday. Closed Mondays and federal holidays.
