About Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art

Established in June 1991, Intuit is the only nonprofit organization in the United States that is solely dedicated to presenting outsider art ? with world class exhibitions; resources for scholars and students; a Permanent Collection with holdings of nearly 1,100 works of art; the Henry Darger Room Collection, a permanent installation; the Robert A. Roth Study Center, a non-circulating collection with a primary focus in the fields of outsider and contemporary self-taught art; and educational programming for people of all interest levels and backgrounds. Through its programs, Intuit bolsters the nationally prominent role that Chicago artists and collectors have played in generating interest in outsider art. After spending its first few years as an itinerant organization, Intuit purchased the former Randolph Street Gallery space at 756 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago's West Town neighborhood to serve as headquarters for the organization's expanding activities. Comprised of 12,000 square feet, the facility includes two galleries, a performance/ meeting space, the Robert A. Roth Study Center, the Henry Darger Room Collection, and a small gift shop.

Please see the Center's website for hours and admission fees.
