Temporarily Closed Exhibitions
Dr. W. E. Knight Porcelain Gallery
RAM has owned one of the largest collections of fine Boehm porcelain in the state of Arkansas and now has the ability to permanently display it to the public in the new Dr. W. E. Knight Porcelain Gallery.
The Touch Gallery
RAM is pleased to announce our new The Touch Gallery! So often in museums, the warning “Please don’t touch the art” bombards visitors. This, of course, is a precaution to protect the art objects, yet it deprives us of exploring surfaces and learning about materials, techniques, and artistic intent with one of our most important sensory tools, our sense of touch.
Opening soon! The newly renamed – RAM Student Gallery Sponsored by Arvest Foundation.
Every membership is vital to the museum’s fiscal health. All memberships are valid one year from purchase. To purchase a new membership, or to renew a current membership please click the button below for current levels.
