Take a tour of the former home and studio of renowned artist and School of the Art Institute of Chicago alumnus, Roger Brown. The Roger Brown Study Collection is an artists’ museum featuring works by Chicago Imagists, self-taught artists, folk and tribal art and objects from material and popular culture, costumes, textiles, furniture, travel souvenirs, and a Ford Mustang in the garage – all of which were touchstones that fueled the intense and demanding work of being an artist.
Please note that the tour is not fully accessible. The collection is located on the second floor and in two stairways, accessible by two 19th century original stairways.
