Highlights Tour: American Visionary Art Museum
Friday, December 2

10:30 am - 11:30 am 

 

With an expert Docent Guide, discover some of the enchanting wonders on exhibit at the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) in Baltimore. This is the nation's primary museum and education center for self-taught or "outsider" art. It has won great acclaim by both museum experts and those who don't even consider themselves art aficionados. Seven galleries exhibit the quirky creations—paintings, sculptures, relief works, and pieces that defy easy classification—of untrained "visionary" artists working outside the mainstream art world.The offbeat artwork captures the passion of unconventional ideas or elaborate fantasy worlds. Some works are poignant, while others are hilarious. They are designed to instill wonder, surprise, delight, and hope! Don’t miss out on our first virtual tour of this unique museum.
