Through a series of gifts and bequests The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) has become the primary repository of the personal, intellectual, and artistic effects of alumnus Roger Brown. His generosity to the School included a remarkable group of paintings and prints. Brown’s gift of paintings is organized into two groups: the Roger Brown Permanent Collection, a study collection of works that are available for study and exhibition, and the Roger Brown Estate Collection of Paintings and Prints. Works from the Estate Collections are offered for sale to museums and private collectors, and are available for loan to museum exhibitions. Proceeds from the sale of paintings and prints provide a major source of operating support for the Roger Brown Study Collection.
SAIC is in the unique position to share a wealth of artistic, personal, and intellectual resources from the RBSC Archive with collectors and institutions considering loans or purchases. The RBSC Archive includes Brown’s sketchbooks from early/student years to the early 1990s. From these we can often provide images from Brown’s creative process for a specific work or art, or a time frame in Brown’s career. We can often provide provenance, exhibition and publication histories, and at times we can find references to specific works or ideas in Brown’s writings.
THIS WEEK: Interviews with Leslie Hindman, Wesley “The Shark” Kimler, and Michael “Makes icky noises into the mic which I need to edit out” Workman.

NOTE: I was contacted via e-mail (sent what is essentially a cease and desist) by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission. I was informed that as Duncan is a Canadian artist and is working in the media, he, and thereby Bad at Sports are governed by the standards and practices of Section 3 of the Canadian National Broadcasting Act and we were deficient in our quota of MAPL (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_content#How_the_MAPL_system_works I had to look it up) based Canadian content in the program. Hence this week’s music cues, in case you were wondering.
NEXT WEEK: THE EFFING ART FAIRS
In this episode Bad at Sports welcomes guest reviewers: Boston up-and-comer Liz Nofziger and Columbia College Chicago’s Neysa Page-Lieberman. They join Bad at Sports locals Terri Griffith, Serena Worthington, Joanna Topor, and Duncan MacKenzie as we shake up and shake down shows in the West Loop. Tune in as they struggle with Gescheidle’s two new shows–Drew Beattie and Chris Verene–whose name Duncan butchers repeatedly; GARDENFresh’s first show in their new digs; and Gallery 40000’s two new offerings, Thomas Rapai and Amy Vogel. All that, and Brian Andrews talks politics and art!
ALSO A BRAND NEW CONTEST: The first Bad at Sports Essay Contest is announced in the outro this week. We need you to write a speculative essay of 100 words or less on why Edward Lifson dislikes us. These can be as speculative and fictitious as possible. The winner will have their essay read on the air by Book Guru Terry Griffith!!!
On that note don’t forget to e-mail Hello Beautiful and tell them about our project!!! HelloBeautiful@ChicagoPublicRadio.org
ALSO you can contact them via the following (lifted from their site)
Whether you’re an artist or enthusiast, musician or muse, Chicago Public Radio’s arts desk wants your thoughts on where to go and what to see in Chicagoland. Share your ideas one of two ways:
This week, The Bad at Sports Staff Meeting intro! Michael Velliquette joins Amanda and Duncan in review shows galore, heck maybe even yours. Don’t miss it.
We are doing a show from CAA, if you are interviewing, being interviewed, presenting, or just there for the non-stop action and fun, we are looking to get brief reviews of the experience from you! E-mail us and we will set up a meeting place at CAA to record.
This week: Lisa Boyle talks about her gallery’s recent move. She schools our listeners on how emerging artists should and should not approach galleries. She tells us about the fascinating game(?) Bird Horse Muffin which totally blows Richard and Duncan’s tiny little minds.
Michael Benedetto: our new 30 second film critic reviews The Proposition.
Richard, Duncan and Amanda review shows at Kavi Gupta, Carrie Secrist (during which Richard apologizes to Missy), they talk about why they were mystified by their shabby treatment at Kraft/Lieberman gallery AND why Mark Rowland of Rowland Contemporary knows how to treat gallery patrons right, and lastly Kasia Kay Art Projects Gallery. The phrase “Shitty Drawing” is thrown around way way way WAY too much. Wow.
