ROGER BROWN STUDY COLLECTION:
AN ARTISTS' MUSEUM

All of them are touchstones that fueled Brown’s intense and demanding creative practice.
LOYOLA AT CUNEO MANSION AND GARDENS:
YOU BAROQUE IT...

At 6018North, artists are encouraged to create artworks that are experimental and challenging, yet accessible and often participatory. During the exhibition "Home: Public or Private?" visitors roamed the halls of the mansion, peeking into rooms which artists had transformed into living tableaus and unique presentations of the house’s original interiors.
