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.

Customer Reviews

Must see incredible exhibition my granddaughter and I had a wonderful time and she is teenager

LOTS of fun! Best place to take out-of-town visitors - they're always blown away by the creativity, moved by the stories of some of the artists, and thrilled by the vibrant colors and unusual materials used by the self-trained artists.

My husband and I thought the exhibits were interesting. I would not recommend the Museum to young children as so many of the artists had dark content in their work, and after reading some of their bios you can certainly understand why. I did find the wood sculptures especially appealing. I will definitely go again so I can take more time to read up on all the exhibits.
