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, the haunting Applewood Figure, or the World's First Family of Robots by DeVon Smith. 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.

I hadn't heard of this museum before, and I thought it was fantastic! I got there just in time for a tour from a volunteer/docent, and he was obviously very passionate about the museum and the area. I enjoyed the bios of the artists to learn how they were inspired to create such interesting pieces. I had limited time and will need to return! The gift shop was unique as well and very fairly priced.
