Roger William Brown was born on April 14, 1925, in Detroit, Michigan, into a family of four brothers, together with two sons of the elder brother, that, by the time he was ready for school, began to suffer from the economic distress of the depression.
Roger's friends were simultaneously puzzled and saddened by the honesty of this memoir and could not understand why he had chosen a confession that created impossible levels of dissonance in those who loved him most.
RogerBrown was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1972.
The RogerBrown Study Collection is a kaleidoscopic environment of art, with works by Chicago Imagists and other contemporary artists, works by self-taught artists, folk art from many cultures, objects from material and popular culture, costumes and textiles, furniture, and other things that artist RogerBrown surrounded himself with for artistic inspiration.
Through the slide presentation guests are introduced to RogerBrown's artistic and architectural path, the context of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the city's artistic environment in the 1960s and 70s, and the relationship between Brown's collection and artistic practice.
Brown's residence and "Artists' Museum" collection is preserved as a house museum and is installed, as Brown left it, throughout the entire second floor.
