Sept. 25, 2015 - Jan. 3, 2016
Lost and Found featuring Kim Alsbrooks and Nikki Coupee

Lost and Found underscores the ability some artists have to decontextualize the marginalized or overlooked, and to imbue the ordinary with something extraordinary. Works made of found materials from RAM’s collection are combined with the work of two featured artists. Kim Alsbrooks emblazons found trash, such as aluminum cans, with detailed oil and graphite portraits of historical figures. Interested in the connection between adornment and social status, Nikki Coupee uses found objects, Plexiglas, and brass to create jewelry that appears opulent even though it is made of non-precious elements.

An admission fee of $5 for adults, with reduced fees for students and seniors, applies at RAM.

Urban Wood Encounter 2015: RAM Explores Contemporary Furniture

This show emphasizes creative uses for urban wood, which is rescued from trees that are not harvested for their timber value, and might usually find their way into landfills when they succumb to age, injury, or disease. Urban Wood offers an expansive lens for understanding material use and value. A collection of a wide range of furniture and objects, this exhibition reflects regional artists applying their individual styles and personal interests to this often-discarded wood. Aligning with its contemporary crafts focus, RAM is the first museum to feature this annual event, which also showcases area talent. An admission fee of $5 for adults, with reduced fees for students and seniors, applies at RAM.
