The Visionary Art Museum yeah!!


On January 11th we went on a field trip to the The American Visionary Art Museum.
Here's a little info about the exhibition we saw.
What Makes Us Smile?" is the American Visionary Art Museum's 16th year-long exhibition — a playful celebration of human joy that is co-curated by renowned creator of "The Simpsons," Matt Groening, artist Gary Panter – known for, among many other things, his whimsy behind Pee-Wee Herman's Playhouse – and Museum founder Rebecca Hoffberger. "Smile" features the costumes, cartoons, out-loud & 3-D glee-filled surprises created by 90 artists, imps, and comedians with accompanying essays, factoids, quotes and blurbs that revel in the history and science behind the gift of laughter.


We also saw did the Wire Whimsy workshop. Inspired by visionary artist Wayne "Mad Max"McCaffery and his Three Cookie Jar's. Students transformed an ordinary box or jar into a wire coiled and random fun whimsy. We had a great time as usual!
