Artists and designers must make an effort to maintain a sense of place in our increasingly global and multicentered society. There are a variety of courses listed below that invite students to participate in Chicago-based communities and explore the neighborhoods surrounding the Loop. In addition, artists such as SAIC alumnus Roger Brown donated his home and collections to the school, which include artworks by many notable Chicago imagists as well as pieces by naive or primitive artists. Students can take courses at the Roger Brown Study Collection in Lincoln Park.  Please see your advisor to discuss related course listings that pertain to this area called Community and Locality.
