About the Exhibition
AVAM’s 27th original thematic mega-exhibition is a wildly joyful, community-building contemplation of just what constitutes real wealth by exploring what lies at the heart of deep satisfaction, productive happiness, and gratefulness, both individual and collective. Nowhere is the quest for personal freedom in the expression of work, nor the pursuit of joy, more evident than in the creations of artists who have wrought new worlds from modest, often discarded, materials—equipped only with their hands, hearts, and fertile imaginations.
