The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster

AVAM's 20th original exhibition champions life's grand "Aha!" and "Eureka!" moments, held in common by Earth's most dynamic and intuitive "evolutionaries:" inventors, scientists, America's founding fathers, dreamers and saints; each touched by some lightening bolt of greater understanding, insight, grace and muse. Featuring a spirited centennial celebration of America's most prolific self-tutored and "on fire" artist, Rev. Howard Finster, with illuminating works by visionaries: Ingo Swann, Jimi Hendrix, Christine Sefolosha, Walter Russell, Robert Crumb, Paolo Soleri, Dr. Robert Hieronimus, plus an exploration of inventive new spiritual groups: Unarius Academy of Science, The Source Family, and much more!
