You ask What is Visionary Art?” The AVAM says it “refers to art produced by self-taught individuals, usually without formal training, whose works arise from an innate personal vision that revels foremost in the creative act itself.” Unlike folk art, visionary art is entirely spontaneous and individualized, born of no tradition except whatever is in the artist’s mind at that moment. AVAM features art that is eccentric, unique, and personal. According to the website, AVAM celebrates “the sense that America is at her best when she actively remembers that many of her greatest citizens were very much self-taught, self-made pioneers.” The concept for this museum took us a bit of getting used to, even with some Bhangra Dance playing, but we like it. OK says go checkout the website first and then, minds expanded to entertain new possibilities, go to the AVAM, on Key Highway at the base of Federal Hill.”
