American Visionary Art Museum – 800 Key Highway

Showing through September 2014, with ongoing installation throughout Summer 2013, The American Visionary Art Museum is excited to present A Very Visionary Star-Spanlged Sidewalk. This exhibit is described as a “free outdoor art celebration” in conjunction with the Maryland’s “Star Spangled 200” Bicentennial. The sidewalks along Key Highway, surrounding The American Visionary Art Museum, will be turned into a line by line artistic depiction of our Nation’s Anthem, and will be applied using environmentally safe pigments and sealant. The American Visionary Art Museum hopes visitors and passers-by alike will literally “stand and take part” in Maryland’s rich history. The historically linked exhibit is also meant to compliment the museum’s current thematic exhibit The Art of Storytelling: Lies, Enchantment, Humor, and Truth as the elements of Francis Scott Key’s account of the British attack on Fort McHenry in 1814 expresses the exhibits theme of personal testimony. The exhibit is completely free and open to the public so head down to step into history!
