3. “Roger Brown” at Venus Over Manhattan
As a student at the Art Institute of Chicago in the late 1960s, Roger Brown began showing with the Chicago Imagists. Inspired by his southern childhood and long road trips taken with his family, Brown’s Folk Art-influenced paintings most often depict the American landscape. Venus Over Manhattan has teamed up with the Roger Brown Study Collection at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Kavi Gupta to present a comprehensive survey of his long career.
