Community Conversation
Wednesday, April 29, 6:30 – 8:30 pm at RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts, 2519 Northwestern Avenue, Racine

A community screening of the film, Downside UP by Nancy Kelly, accompanied by a thought-provoking discussion.

About the film:
“How does a dying working class town end up betting its future on art? With 80% of its downtown buildings closed, North Adams, Massachusetts united blue-collar locals with art world luminaries to transform economic failure into America’s largest center for contemporary art, MASS MoCA. A film by North Adams native Nancy Kelly, Downside Up is about the tentative, dangerous notion of hope in a city widely viewed as hopeless.”

Photo Studio for Visual Artists
at RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts, 2519 Northwestern Avenue, Racine

Excellent photos are essential for artists who submit images online and for use in website portfolios. All artists are welcome to reserve the Photo Studio for a nominal $10 per hour fee. Funded by the Osborne and Scekic Family Foundation, the studio is equiped with professional photography for both 2-D and 3-D artwork.

Artists will be required to undergo a 15-minute equipment instruction session prior to shooting.
