AVAM's Tall Sculpture Barn

Formerly the Four Roses whiskey warehouse, the 45-foot ceilings can accommodate towering sculptural works. The Tall Sculpture Barn features a life-size, interactive chess set of sculpted metal angels and aliens made exclusively from found objects by North Carolina artist Lyle Estill and the 1300 square-feet of painted panels called The Seven Days of Creation by visionary William Thomas Thompson. The Barn also functions as a host site for lectures, private receptions and celebrations.
