Join Art After Five Coordinator and celebrated artist Linda Kramer for a tour of a home and collection, that is set on five and a half wooded acres in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

The collection includes paintings, drawings and prints by artists such as Andy Warhol, Alex Katz, Philip Pearlstein and Robert Arnason with a focus on Chicago Imagist works on paper by Jim Nutt, Gladys Nilsson, Roger Brown, Karl Wirsum, Ray Yoshida and Barbara Rossi. A large group of works by American self-taught artists includes works by Felipe Archuleta, Thornton Dial, Rev. Josephus Farmer, Howard Finster, Lee Godie, Charles Steffen, Simon Sparrow, Edgar Tolson, Joseph Yoakum, Eugene von Bruenchenhein and others.
