My daughter and I went to the Intuit as an antidote to our unpleasant visit to the Art Institute of Chicago the weekend before. We viewed the current exhibit and then I stuck my head into the performance space and were invited in to see the new art on the wall. I asked the staff member there some questions which... More

Fans of self taught /folk art are well versed where to get their fix-- there are permanent exhibitions of this art in Atlanta, NYC, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. But there is nobody - and i mean NOBODY-- who does such an incredible job showing and promoting the field as Intuit does. A constantly changing show schedule makes this a must... More

With lots to look at, this space is one that is worth a visit. Not far from downtown and close to a great coffee shop, it's packed full with curiosities. From the Darger Room to quarterly exhibitions and many monthly events, there's something for everyone. And their site is www.art.org ! Not bad.

Visited the Intuit Museum over winter break. Was searching for a different museum to take my teenage boys. We have been to and love all the big name museums in Chicago many times and needed something new and different. Boys enjoyed the exhibits and sparked much conversation later. Small place and I believe the exhibits change periodically. Location worked out... More

It's a small space, but it houses tons of material. It could be an all day affair for someone who enjoys outsider art. The Darger Room (a replica of his room at the Lerner's place) is amazing.

I visited here and saw the Henry Darger display. Very nice gallery and a unique place to see beautiful (and sometimes weird) art outside the mainstream. Parking was not a problem at all. Good little gift shop too with books, etc. Recommended for art lovers looking for something off the beaten path.

This little gallery space that shows Outsider and Intuitive Art is one of Chicago's hidden gems. They always have interesting shows and programming going on surrounding them. In the rear of the gallery is a recreation of Henry Darger's apartment that is not to be missed. The little gift shop is a perfect place to find that unique gift for... More
