The American Visionary Art Museum specializes in the preservation and display of outsider art, also known as “intuitive art,” “raw art,” or “art brut.” Congress has designated it as America’s National Museum for Visionary Art.

The museum’s facilities feature three floors of exhibition space, a Sculpture Barn and Wildflower Garden, and event spaces.

The museum has a permanent collection of about 4,000 pieces. Its exhibitions, rather than focusing on specific artists or styles, focus on themed shows.

The museum’s list of educational goals include:

  • Expand the definition of a worthwhile life
  • Engender respect for and delight in the gift of others

The American Visionary Art Museum sponsors artistic events, including art car events, the Kinetic Sculpture Race, workshops, awareness events, and fundraisers.
