AVAM’s 26th original and newest thematic mega-exhibition "Healing & The Art of Compassion (and the Lack Thereof!)" focuses public attention on two sibling essential powers - healing and compassion - twin forces for greater good sorely in need today. Clearly defining compassion, how it operates as a healing force in our own lives, within our own families, our communities, in social welfare, monetary, and justice systems, and in the world, is at the heart of this uplifting and enlightening exhibition’s premise and purpose.

Artist LEONARD KNIGHT at his
creation Salvation Mountain.
“There's Mt. Rushmore and
there's Salvation Mountain.”
“If somebody gave
me $100,000 a week
to move...I’d refuse it.
I want to be right here. It’s amazing, isn’t it?”
“an exuberant haven for self-taught artists”
