"Roger Brown (1941-1997) was recognized nationally and internationally for his significant contributions to the history of Chicago art and to Twentieth Century American art, through his distinctive, original artistic vision, and his works in many mediums. He was known for responding adroitly to the fabric of 20th Century life, through works that addressed a range of subjects and issues, including: natural, architectural, and urban landscapes, the dichotomy of nature and culture, disasters of all types, current and political events, social, religious, and popular culture, autobiographical, personal, and sexual issues, the art world in many guises, cosmology, mortality, history, mythology, transformation, transportation, and the weather"
