AVAM named Best of Baltimore 2014!

AVAM named "Best Museum" in Baltimore Magazine's Readers' Choice

During this time of year, we are in full swing at "The Visionary" with a great line-up of events for our community! From our summer movie series Flicks From The Hill to our neighborhood bike rides Tours de Federal Hill, and we have just one more piece of exciting news for our fans. For the second year in a row, AVAM was named "Best Museum" in Baltimore Magazine's 2014 Readers' Choice! We are truly honored and elated to receive this recognition from Baltimore Magazine's fine readers! We could not have done it without the support of our creative community of friends and fans, and of course, the hard work and dedication of our fearless team of volunteers and staff.

As we approach the end of summer, our current show, Human, Soul, & Machine: The Coming Singularity! will be coming to a close. Don't miss your last chance to explore the incredible, visionary delights in this timely exhibit which was hailed by Art & Antiques Magazine as "one of the most thought-provoking museum exhibitions mounted recently." We are also excited to launch our new exhibition this Fall: The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster, that will be with us through the next year. We know it will be the best yet, thanks to you!
