The Rockford Art Museum hosts the exhibit "Sonic Disruptions," works by Derrick Buisch and Laurie Hogin, through Sept. 27. This major exhibition features two artists who use color, imagery, narrative and symbol to stimulate the senses. Vibrating lines morph into playful symbols of pop culture and brilliant color combinations provide jolts of electric energy in paintings.
RAM is also hosting a special exhibit of taxidermy on loan from Burpee Museum.
The museum’s top priority is the health and safety of our community, visitors, staff and volunteers. As part of our phased reopening, new requirements for visitors will include: face coverings over mouth and nose, wellness checks (no temperature above 100.4, no COVID-19 symptoms) and social distancing. Visitors who are not able to meet the entrance requirements will be asked to return a different day.
All policies and practices align with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Winnebago County Health Department (WCHD), and are subject to change as updated. Rockford Art Museum follows all guidelines given from the official State of Illinois Reopening Plan as well as the City of Rockford. Other procedures are based on best practices from research and collaboration with the American Alliance of Museums (AAM).
