Good Morning Baltimore! Museum Club Visits The American Visionary Art Museum.

The Lower Eastside Girlsclub had a very special monthly Museum club adventure!. We traveled to Baltimore to visit the American Visionary Art Museum. We had a guided tour of the current exhibition YUMMM! The History, Fantasy, and Future of Food, by the museums founder Rebecca Hoffberger. The exhibition “brings together 34 artists who joined forces with food scientists, farmers, nutritionists, environmental activists, psychologists, poets and humorists to publicly explore humankind’s complex, multi-layered relationship with food.” After viewing the exhibition several of our girls worked with art instructor Megan Kindsfather to revive a collage painting of Julia Child, which is part of the museums permanent collection. What an adventure!
