August 23 - November 16, 2019

Since 1979, the Racine Art Museum has hosted the ongoing juried photography competition, Wisconsin Photography. Over the last four decades, these exhibitions at RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts have showcased the state’s photographers working with a wide range of subjects and in a variety of styles. These shows have provided a pool of high-quality work from which the museum has been able to grow its holdings of regional photography.

Arthur P. Haas (1930 – 1982) was a Racine native and an award-winning photographer who spent a lifetime visually chronicling life in Racine in his role as staff photographer for The Journal Times, the city’s daily paper. In addition to his own work, Haas served as a mentor and informal teacher to many younger, area photographers. Upon his death in 1982, a Memorial Purchase Fund–-established by his sister Dorothy Haas with gifts from family and friends–-was established. These monies allow RAM to further support regional photographers by acquiring works from Wisconsin Photography each year for the museum’s permanent collection.

The 40 works shown here are just a sample of over 100 pieces that RAM has been able to acquire since the exhibition’s inception.
