The Laura and John Fraser Collection surveys one of the most recent major gifts to the Rockford Art Museum Permanent Collection in its entirety. The Fraser Collection is a stellar compilation of 122 contemporary paintings, prints, drawings, mixed media, and sculptures by an international roster of 57 artists, including several local and regional artists.


The Laura and John Fraser Collection is organized by Rockford Art Museum, curated by RAM Curator Carrie Johnson. This exhibition and related educational programming are sponsored by a grant from the Community Arts & Humanities Fund of the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, and by a grant from Smith Charitable Foundation; and partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency and by the Armer Ahlstrand Charitable Foundation. All RAM education programs are supported in part by Women’s Art Board.
