Based in Chicago, the Intuit organization aims to promote understanding and awareness of intuitive and outsider art. But what exactly constitutes intuitive and outsider art? According to the Mission link on the website's About section, it is the "work of artists who demonstrate little influence from the mainstream art world and who instead are motivated by their unique personal visions." It is also called art brut, non-traditional folk art, and self-taught art. Visitors will find the Collections link offers a unique installation called the Henry Darger Room, as well as Permanent Collection, Recent Gifts, and Artists. The Darger Room is a window into what artist Darger's working and living space in Chicago was like, and how that manifested itself in his art. The items in the room are actually the spaces where Darger lived and worked. Visitors should click on the second picture of the room to navigate and zoom in on the contents of his room.
