It's your last chance to experience AVAM's 19th original show, hailed by Art & Antiques Magazine as "one of the most thought-provoking museum exhibitions mounted recently." This stirring exhibit harnesses the enchanting visual delights of remarkable visionaries and cutting-edge futurists, including Kenny Irwin Jr., Rigo 23, Lindsey Bessanson, Fred Carter, Allen Christian, Alex Grey, Ray Kurzweil, O.L. Samuels, and many more. It's a hot-wired blend of art, science, humor, caution and hope!
