American Visionary Art Museum

The American Visionary Art Museum devotes its space to original work by self-taught artists who honed their craft—often unintentionally—while operating on the outskirts of the formal art world. As temporary exhibitions explore a particular artist or theme in depth, the permanent collection displays thousands of powerful and often whimsical items, such as Andrew Logan's mirror-winged Black Icarus, or the haunting Applewood Figure, an emaciated sculpture said to wince whenever someone eats a piece of fruit. The museum spreads its arresting pieces throughout three historical buildings, including the expansive main building, which boasts a reflective mirrored-mosaic exterior and neighbors the Tall Sculpture Barn, an ex-whiskey warehouse fully equipped with 45-foot ceilings for large-scale projects. A wildflower garden—complete with meditation chapel—and a sculpture plaza featuring a 55-foot whirligig beckon visitors to the museum's outdoor space, where envious clouds shape themselves into crude versions of Pietà. Completing any trip, the museum's Sideshow gift shop stuffs shopping bags with an ever-rotating collection of eclectic artwork, jewelry, toys, and more.

    “best gift store ever!just what one would hope for from a visionary museum:an eclectic outragreous ,collection of stuff :from all sorts of jewelery, books, toys a cross between a flea market and curio shop- good prices& some good taste too. The museum itself is very well done- beautifully curated,it explores what visionary art may be.While it does include some primitive art this is not a one topic presentation.Some of my favorites are the giant ball of women's bras;examples of Baltimore painted screens and the toothpick ship model- painted, stretching about 12 feet.”
