The Art of Storytelling: Lies, Enchantment, Humor & Truth
From scripture to fairy tale, cartoons to cyberbullying, the raw power of stories to inspire and enchant, spread lies or to inform, simply has no equal. THE ART OF STORYTELLING: Lies, Enchantment, Humor & Truth is the American Visionary Art Museum's 18th original, yearlong exhibition featuring embroidery, diorama, sculpture, film, graffiti, and PostSecret confession–promoting all manner of acute 'visual listening' and delight for the whole family.
