On view are 26 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper created by Chicago artists, including works by Roger Brown, Leon Golub, Theodore Halkin, Vera Klement, Ellen Lanyon, Jim Nutt, Ed Paschke, Barry Tinsley, and Ray Yoshida. Dating from 1960 to 1980, many of the pieces are typical of the well-known Chicago taste for figurative art. The artworks are from the S. W. and B. M. Koffler Foundation collection, given to the museum in the late 1970s and early 1980s by Samuel and Blanche Koffler.
