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. Read the rest of this entry »

Sports Saturday: Baltimore Orioles

April 9th, 2011 by mjwilliams2

The baseball gods must have been looking out for Marylanders on opening day at Camden Yards, as gorgeous weather graced Birdland, allowing the Orioles to defeat the Tigers 5-1. With a current record of 4-0, things seem to be looking up for the Birds, however; it is way too early in the season to get a little cocky. That’s why the Orioles need all the support they can get, as devoted fans are the ones that carry them on towards even more victories. Come down on April 18th to cheer on the Orioles as they return home to take on Minnesota. The game starts at 7:05pm, but we all know the crowd will gather at Pickles way earlier than that. Get your ticket, throw on some orange, and start screaming at the top of your lungs. Let’s keep this going Orioles! Read the rest of this entry »
