Roger Brown Study Center

City ExpandingWe treat our Chicago Art Retreat artists to the special collection of the Roger Brown house museum every winter www.chicagoartretreats.org, but you can schedule your own private tour in advance of your arrival to Chicago by emailing rbsc@saic.edu to arrange a tour for $15 (Museum Tour with slide presentation) or $8 (DIY  tour).  This is a great overview of Roger Brown’s work as well as many of the Chicago Imagist artists/educators, who were his colleagues and friends: Ray Yoshida, Christina Ramberg, Jim Nutt, Gladys Nilsson, Karl Wirsum, Phil Hanson, Don Baum, et al. and includes work by outsider artists: Henry Darger, Jesse Howard and  Joseph Yoakum.  We highly recommend this home/studio tour if you are interested in Brown’s work as an artist/collector, the Chicago Imagist or “Hairy Who” group from the 1970’s.
