At 3pm we will depart Baltimore, with a 4pm arrival time in York.

Light snacks will be provided on the bus. There is a Starbucks near the departure site at Queensgate if you should need a coffee for the trip, but be sure to arrive no later than 8:45 at Queensgate so we can depart on time!

About the American Visionary Art Museum:
The American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) is an art museum located in Baltimore, Maryland’s Federal Hill neighborhood at 800 Key Highway. The museum specializes in the preservation and display of outsider art (also known as “intuitive art,” “raw art,” or “art brut”). The city agreed to give the museum a piece of land on the south shore of the Inner Harbor under the condition that its organizers would clean up residual pollution from a copper paint factory and a whiskey warehouse that formerly occupied the site. It has been designated by Congress as America’s national museum for self-taught art.

AVAM’s 1.1 acre campus contains 67,000 square feet of exhibition space and a permanent collection of approximately 4,000 pieces. The museum’s Main Building features three floors of exhibition space, and the campus includes a Tall Sculpture Barn and Wildflower Garden, along with large exhibition and event spaces in the Jim Rouse Visionary Center. The permanent collection includes works by visionary artists, as well as over 40 pieces from the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre of London. And be sure not to miss the wonderful Gift Shop!

The museum has no staff curators, preferring to use guest curators for its shows.

Tickets for the Bus Trip to AVAM are available through Eventbrite, or by calling Creative York at 717-848-3200.
