About the Exhibition

On July 31st, the American Visionary Art Museum premieres its newest third floor gallery exhibition, “The Science & Mystery of Sleep,” featuring a plain-language compilation of all the latest sleep-related scientific research, alongside three spectacular, artist-made visionary bedrooms. The research punctuating this exhibition will be a foray into a multitude of topics: the impact of sleep on obesity and diabetes, sleep and adolescents, the influence of sleep on hormones and testicles, and the power of the Hypnagogic state championed by famed Harvard geneticist Dr. George Church.
