Overview

"WPA Art" commemorates part of the rich history of the Racine Art Museum. The museum’s first director, Sylvester Jerry, obtained more than 260 works produced through the Federal Art Project (FAP) of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), a program that provided jobs during the Great Depression era of the 1930s.

This show includes a selection of prints, watercolors, drawings, photographs, and textiles generated through the WPA that helped launch RAM’s collection.

RAM, 441 Main St., is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; 12 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Closed Mondays and federal holidays. Admission is $5 adults; $3 students and seniors.
