Breaking the Narrative: American Visionary Arts Museum

This week's theme is breaking free of the narratives that control our lives: stories of how things are done, what is possible, what we can be.

An easy start:  this museum of outsider art in Baltimore. AVAM is a total gem, with as satisfying a collection as almost any museum you could visit. Art by the unschooled, art made of paper plates or matchsticks, these pieces are not novelty items; they are beautiful pieces of fully realized art.
