Dedicated to the unusual creations of the "outsider art" movement, American Visionary Art Museum features more than 4,000 works off-the-wall, unorthodox pieces. Known also as "raw art" or "self-taught art," visionary works displayed in the museum focus primarily on self-discovery, individuality, timelessness, and exploration of the mind. You'll find that the museum generally has no permanent curators, as its community-based approach means that most are brought in as guests. Regardless of your artistic leanings, you can view the pieces and learn about the "visionaries" creating them. Check the museum's website for information regarding special tours, art talks, and traveling exhibits.

American Visionary Art Museum reviews
The American Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore had a variety of collections with interesting pieces. There was an altering mirror that was nice to take funny pictures, they have a great view on the top floor (don’t take pictures with flash!!) The gift shop had to be my favorite spot with interesting items like funky sunglasses and coasters that said explicitly funny things.
Amazing, full of colorful interesting creations by extremely talented artists. This place is packed with all different kinds of modern and unique art like no other. You could spend hours reading about each piece or just take in the beauty. My favorite part was the large pieces like the sculpture of Divine.
