Galleries

More than 1,900 works focus on modern and contemporary art, photography, outsider art, contemporary glass, and regional art.

Rockford Art Museum has been enriching the quality of life in the Rockford Region since 1913 through a permanent collection, frequent exhibitions and lifelong education. More than 1,900 works focus on modern and contemporary art, photography, outsider art, contemporary glass, and regional art with an emphasis on Illinois artists. Its critically acclaimed Spiezer Collection is the most significant collection of Chicago art, inside or outside the city. Three galleries on two floors showcase major feature exhibitions each year and changing exhibits of work from the RAM Collection. The museum store is a sure bet for finding Rockford-made gifts by local artists. RAM also offers an outdoor sculpture garden and plenty of free parking. Mark your calendar for annual fundraiser Greenwich Village Art Fair, held rain or shine on the second weekend after Labor Day – it’s the longest-running art fair of its kind in the Midwest.
