Karen Johnson Boyd (1924-2016) was an advocate for and a colllector of art, especially contemporary American craft and works on paper. She was passionate about sharing her affinity with other and presented the Racine Art Museum (RAM) with nearly 1,700 pieces over several decades. This is the largest number of works given to RAM by a single donor.
Organized by the categories of fiber art, work from Japan, work from Perimeter Gallery artists and functional ceremics - all specialty areas of interest for Mrs. Boyd - this exhibition also contains work that is at RAM because of her influence and legacy.
