Museum Monday: American Visionary Art Museum

April 11th, 2011 by WLOY Staff


The American Visionary Art Museum is always a quality museum outing. Full of quirky art and crazy shenanigans the museum provides visitors a chance to view something interesting and abnormal. Currently the museum is featuring the exhibit, “What Makes Us Smile?” which takes an interesting look at happy human emotion.

‘Smile’ was created by an all-star line up. The instillation is a brainchild of Matt Groening, creator of the Simpson’s, artist Gary Panter, a set designer for Pee Wee’s Playhouse and the museum’s founder, Rebecca Hoffberger. The exhibit features works by 90 artists. They’ve got cartoons, 3-D fun, scientific surprises and spunky art. The Visionary Art Museum is full of spanking cool art, and ‘What Makes Us Smile’ is a rad exhibit to check out.

Also going on, the Visionary museum has rolled out their artsy creatures for the warm weather. And they’re gearing up for their Kinetic Sculpture Race on May 7. (The museum is currently seeking volunteers for the event.)
