EXHIBITION: "The Art of Storytelling: Lies, Enchantment, Humor & Truth"
October 6, 2012 – September 1, 2013. From scripture to fairy tale, cartoons to cyber-bullying, 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.

EXHIBITION: "Gretchen Feldman: Love Letter to Earth (1934-2008)"
Through June 1, 2013 • 3rd Floor Gallery, Main Building. This luminous retrospective of 40+ vivid paintings exalt the exquisite, eternal themes of "Perfect Unions:" where land meets sea, day embraces night, sky kisses earth–opposites inherent to life's sacred cycle of union and touch. Among Feldman's bright, abstract works are vibrant, colorful landscapes and scenes depicting idyllic country life, contrasted with an artful examination of cancer cells which cut short the artist's most loving and happy life. These radiant works, accompanied by personal photographs, essays, and quotes, celebrate the life and artistry of one unusually loving and sensitive soul. MORE INFO

THE AMERICAN VISIONARY ART MUSEUM (AVAM) is America's official national museum and education center for self-taught, intuitive artistry. Since its opening in 1995, the museum has sought to promote the recognition of intuitive, self-reliant, creative contribution as both an important historic and essential living piece of treasured human legacy. The one-of-a-kind American Visionary Art Museum is located on a 1.1 acre wonderland campus at 800 Key Highway, Baltimore Inner Harbor. Three renovated historic industrial buildings house wonders created by farmers, housewives, mechanics, retired folk, the disabled, the homeless, as well as the occasional neurosurgeon – all inspired by the fire within. From carved roots to embroidered rags, tattoos to toothpicks, the visionary transforms dreams, loss, hopes, and ideals into powerful works of art.
