American Visonary Art Museum

On my trip east... my brother and i visited [briefly] the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD. it rocks!
you must go see -- if you are ever in the area.

We also went to the Corcoran Art Museum -- and saw Richard Avedon's photographic portraits of People in Power commissioned by ROLLING STONE magazine. these portraits were taken through the 60's and 70's. awesome!

The National Portrait gallery had two memorable exhibits --Women of Our Time: Twentieth Century Photographs.......and... my personal favorite -- Alfred Steiglitz and Georgia O'Keefe. I have never seen so many O'Keefe in one place at once! truly inspirational.
The last museum we visited was the National Museum for Women in the Arts.
There was a nice collection and overview photo exhibit -- but nothing too eye-catching -- except the Frieda Kahlo.
