American Visionary Art Museum

The American Visionary Art Museum, located at the base of historic Federal Hill in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, is one of the most unique art museums in the country. You won’t find anything boring or stuffy here. The museum features artworks by contemporary and historic self-taught artists. What makes their work interesting is that it breaks all the rules and arises from an intense personal vision. You’ll find everything here from art made from junkyard scraps to the most intricate and time-intensive models and sculptures, many taking decades to create.  The artists - many of them street people, hermits, housewives, and blue collar workers -  may not even think of their work as “art,” but what they’ve produced are some of the most fascinating and beautiful artworks you’ll ever come across.
