About the Exhibition
Anchored by fantastical, handmade bedrooms created by three visionary artists as personal refuge, the American Visionary Art Museum explores the latest scientific research behind sleep as both force majeur to our total wellbeing and hypnagogic portal, enabling fresh revelations in science, art, and creative innovation of all sort.
