When David Bowie and Iman come to Baltimore

For some reason I continue to tell people that David Bowie and Iman are on the board at the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM). I'm honestly not sure if it is true but if they aren't actually on the board, I'm sure they would love it. In many ways AVAM is the crown jewel of Baltimore Museums, as it really represents and recognizes what the foundation of Baltimore's art culture. That would be, the John Waters, seedy underbelly, papermache, cabaret, home made kinetic sculpture, pasties kind of art.

I have theorized that without a really kick ass commercial gallery market, a different kind of art has arisen in Baltimore. Perhaps this is true, but never the less the underground and experimental art events like the High Zero Experimental Music Festival and the Transmodern make Baltimore an amazing place to be...

Oh and when your in town make sure to go duckpin bowling as well...
