Visitors to the Richmond Art Museum (RAM) should prepare to have their eyes opened and their minds engaged by traveling exhibitions, a remarkable permanent collection of 19th and 20th Century art, and a variety of stimulating child-centered activities.

The only independent art museum to be housed within a public school, RAM takes its mission seriously. Elementary-age children are treated to intercultural learning experiences with the "Art is…" series, and the screening of short films created by high school filmmakers in the Phantoscope High School Film Festival (in our 500 seat auditorium) appeals to teens and adults alike. Other programs with wide audience appeal include an annual high school art competition; ArtWork, a series of workshops beneficial to artists who are building their own careers; and the annual museum-hosted Secret Garden Tour highlighting art that exists in local outdoor spaces. For over a century, the museum has also hosted the Annual Exhibition by Richmond and Area Artists, which is juried and features up and coming artists from Indiana and Ohio.

RAM is open to the public year-round without charge and is fully accessible to individuals with physical disabilities.
