Many don’t realize that Chicago’s House of Blues is home to more than just music—adorning the halls is one of the largest permanently displayed collections of outsider and folk art! As you enter Visionary Ball 2023, enjoy a diverse array of works by Mose Tolliver, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, Roy Ferdinand, Howard Finster and more.

Toast to your favorite exhibitions and programs with Intuit’s worldwide network of members and friends at the party of the year at the House of Blues’ Foundation Room (329 N. Dearborn Street, Chicago). Friends from afar are encouraged to bid on the online auction and participate in the livestreamed 30-minute program beginning at 7 p.m. central on Zoom.

Being honored with Intuit’s highest award, the Visionary Award, is artist Dr. Charles Smith!

All proceeds will help Intuit serve the widest possible audience by providing thought-provoking outsider and self-taught art experiences for free or at low cost.
