Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art

Intuit champions diverse artistic voices and pathways, inviting all to explore the  power of outsider art. Founded in 1991, Intuit is a premier museum of outsider and  self-taught art, defined as work created by artists who faced marginalization, overcame personal odds to make their artwork, or who didn’t, or sometimes couldn’t,  follow a traditional path of art making, often using materials at hand to realize their  artistic vision. By presenting a diversity of artistic voices, Intuit builds a bridge from  art to audience. The museum’s mission—to celebrate the power of outsider art—is  grounded in the ethos that powerful art can be found in unexpected places and  made by unexpected creators. 

Intuit offers world-class exhibitions; a collection of 1,200 artworks; the Henry Darger  Room; resources for scholars and students, such as the Robert A. Roth Study Center;  and educational programs for people of all interest levels and backgrounds.

Intuit runs two public programs each  month and hosts several special events throughout the year.
