Roger Brown Master Artworks
The Roger Brown Master Artworks is a digital collection of images and information about the work of artist Roger Brown (1941-1997). A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC; BFA, 1968; MFA, 1970), for 27 years Brown made paintings, sculptures, prints, sets, and costumes for theatre and opera, and large-scale murals for architectural settings. His Chicago home, studio and vast collection is now SAIC's Roger Brown Study Collection, an important artists' museum and special collection. Beginning with his paintings, sculpture, and murals, the Roger Brown Master Artworks will expand to include his prints, with new photography, directly from the original works where possible.
