News and Special Events

Closed for Memorial Day - Rockhead's will be closed for Memorial Day to allow staff time with their families. We will reopen on Wednesday at our normal time (noon). See you then!

5/24 – 9/5: A Whole Other World: Sub-Culture Craft - this summer, the Racine Art Museum (RAM) explores the intersection of art with subjects that inspire devoted “fan” followings by presenting art influenced by the science fiction and fantasy-based themes of Doctor Who, Star Wars, Superheroes, and Steampunk.
- The artists whose works are represented emphasize the value of the handmade, combining their skills and imagination with compelling stories and characters drawn from modern science fiction, fantasy, history, and invented worlds. For example, artist Mark Newport knits superhero costumes and embroiders comic book covers. Aled Lewis’ Coruscant Tapestry is a thirty-foot long embroidered piece that depicts the action of the Star Wars movie universe to date. This work channels another applauded handcraft, the eleventh-century 230-foot-long Bayeux Tapestry that depicts the Norman conquest of England. Multi-media artist, designer, and performer Timothy Westbrook's steampunk-oriented line of clothing ensembles address gender, sexuality, fantasy, and history.
- During the run of the exhibition, RAM encourages you to come dressed in character (cosplay) to receive free museum admission any day.

- Nightfall is a Vampire, the Masquerade LARP set in the classic World of Darkness setting using the 3rd edition Laws of the Night rules.
- Ten years after leaving Kenosha en masses, the vampires have returned. What drove them out a decade ago, none of the elders will say. But apex predators don't cower for long... even if they should. Now neonates and elders alike seek to not only reclaim the city for the Camarilla, but to be a domain independent of Chicago's rule. Such plans don't sit well with all. The vampires of Chicago and Milwaukee seek to use Kenosha as a pawn in their endless cold war. Rumors persist that werewolves and hunters have returned and want to stop the undead menace. Can the force that drove them out in the first place be far behind... or did it ever leave? Welcome to Kenosha.
