This November, in lieu of a “traditional” member meeting, Spudnik will be hosting a Member Meetup at the Roger Brown Study Collection. We’ve arranged for a tour of the collection just for Spudnik Members! The staff at the Roger Brown Collection have been kind enough to extend a discounted rate ($5/person instead of the normal $15/ person) to our group.
Haven’t Heard of the Roger Brown Study Collection? In their own words:
Homes, studios, and collections sometimes overlap. The Roger Brown Study Collection (RBSC) is one such place. It is a house museum, archive, and one of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s (SAIC) special collections.
Preserved in SAIC alum Roger Brown’s (BFA 1968, MFA 1970) former home and studio, RBSC is filled with objects from the far corners of the world of thing-making. You will find works by Chicago Imagists and nonmainstream artists, folk and tribal art, material and popular culture, costumes, furniture, and things found wandering here and there as well as Brown’s Ford Mustang still parked in the garage.
There is a limited number of spots available as space in the collection is tight; so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending and we’ll add your name to the roster. If you’re interested in doing a bit of research before our visit, check out the Roger Brown Study Collection’s website.
