The Roger Brown Study Collection (RBSC) is an SAIC special collection that exists as an artists’ study collection and archive, preserved intact in a historic house museum setting. The RBSC is an intimate collection with an astonishing range of objects, including works by Chicago Imagists and other contemporary artists, self-taught artists, folk and traditional art from many cultures, objects from material and popular culture, costumes, textiles, furniture, travel souvenirs, and other things Brown surrounded himself with for artistic inspiration.
