Oct 3, 2015-Sept 4, 2016
An original and unabashedly idealistic, art exhibition that champions the radiant and transformative power of hope. Over twenty-five visionary artists, among them many "super survivors" of enormous personal traumas, exhibit soulful creations reflecting their personal transcendence, and, often, a heightened or newfound creativity and sense of humor. Featuring artwork by Wayne Coyne, Bobby Adams, Herman Wallace & Jackie Sumell, Chris Roberts-Antieau, Margaret Munz-Losch, Nancy Josephson, Postsecrets selected by Frank Warren, and many more.

Artist William Chambers brings his interactive experience, Service Station, on tour to AVAM! The project invites participants to respond to the question: "What is missing in your life or the world?" Participants are then invited to talk about their experiences, and contribute to the project by embroidering their answers on a 40 yard long "rest room towel."
