Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art

Founded in 1991, Intuit is a premier museum of outsider and self-taught art, art created by artists who are motivated by their unique personal visions and demonstrate little or no influence from the mainstream art world. The museum’s mission—celebrating 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 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 focus in the fields of outsider and contemporary self-taught art; and educational programming for people of all interest levels and backgrounds. Its centerpiece is its Henry Darger Room Collection, a permanent exhibition and archives, which attracts visitors and scholars worldwide.


The museum hosts #ArtAfterWork, a free art making series held every third Thursday of the month from 5–7pm
