Roger Brown, City Nights: All You-Wanted-To-Know-or-Don't-Want-to-Know-And-Were-Afraid-To-Ask-A-Closet-Painting (subtitle supplied by Barbara Bowman), 1978. oil on canvas, 2D Size: 72" x 48". Collection of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. Promised gift of Mark and Judy Bednar.
Overview

Closely examine select works from Uncommon Accumulation: The Mark & Judy Bednar Collection of Chicago Imagism with curator Mel Becker Solomon. The Imagist artists surveyed in this exhibition, as well as the collectors who have embraced their work, share the belief that the act of looking is a worthwhile and vastly rewarding endeavor. In the spirit of their mentor and fellow Imagist, Ray Yoshida—who urged his students to really look at an object in order to reimagine and reinvent its form—this exhibition delves into works by several of the Imagists to unearth new story lines and highlight the unconventional sources that inspired them. Free admission.
