    The Roger Brown Study Collection (RBSC) is a house museum, special collection, and archive of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).

    Located in the renowned artist and SAIC alumnus Roger Brown's former home and studio, the RBSC is an artists' museum featuring an astonishing range of objects including 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. 

    The building and collection function as a laboratory where students engage in many aspects of the care, organization, interpretation, and preservation of a vast collection of art and artifacts in a 19th century storefront building. The RBSC seeks to be a leader the genre of house museums in the 21st century, and is a member of the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and At Home in Chicago, a network of Chicago-area house museums.

    Due to limited space, this is a members-only event. Joining CAA is quick and easy! In the event that registration does not fill, we will open this event to the general public on October 24.
