  • American Visionary Art Museum

    The American Visionary Arts museum defines visionary artists as self-taught individuals without formal art training who express their "innate personal vision" through their work, and presents one exhibit at a time, each based around a theme. In addition to its 6 galleries, the museum also boasts The Tall Sculpture Barn, The Giant Whirligig and Sculpture Plaza, and The Wildflower Garden. The Joy America Cafe adjoins the museum.

We Say...

Circles, balls, spheres, and just about anything round make up the Visionary Art Museum's next exhibition. That's the organizing principle, in fact-from microscopic atoms and their nuclei to planets circling around the sun. To get an idea of what you'll really see, though, imagine a 100,000-toothpick depiction of San Francisco or 1,200-stitches-per-square-inch dot-by-dot embroideries. In addition to these wonders, see sacred Huichol yarn art and explore the so-called end of the Mayan calendar. You can marvel at the manipulation of your everyday post-meal teeth-cleaners and find out about the end of the world for a whole year, but why not enjoy it in style with music and drinks at the preview party tonight?
