Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art

Established in 1991, Intuit is a premier museum of outsider and self-taught art, defined as the work of artists who demonstrate little influence from the mainstream art world and who instead are motivated by their unique visions. The museum’s mission—to celebrate the power of outsider art—is grounded in the ethos that the instinct to create is universal and the arts must embrace, represent and be accessible to all, regardless of education level or socioeconomic status.

Intuit offers world-class exhibitions; a permanent collection of 1,200 works of art; resources for scholars and students, such as the Robert A. Roth Study Center, a non-circulating collection with a primary focus in the fields of outsider and contempo- rary self-taught art; and educational programming for people of all interest levels and backgrounds. The centerpiece of the museum is the Henry Darger Room Collection, a permanent exhibition and archive which attracts visitors and scholars worldwide.
