AVAM in Baltimore

catch of the day fish (2)If Halloween is one of your top favorite holidays (and it certainly is one of ours), you know that to confine your Halloween reveling to just one night would be a waste of all that fall has to offer. So, many thanks to the Baltimore Sun for compiling a comprehensive list of their Top 20 picks for Halloween events in the coming week. And while so many of their picks are definite must-dos, our heart will always steer us to all things AVAM. The American Visionary Art Museum is simply one of the funnest, coolest, and most unpredictable places in town. And you know these folks have to be serious Halloween fans. Trust us. The proof is in the programming.

Firstly, let’s start off by saying that this event is completely free. So show up early to catch all that it has to offer. From 4pm-6pm there will be “Lumin-Eeries” lantern-making in the barn. Little monsters and their mummies are invited to create their own eerie luminary lantern, just BYO glass jar. The museum provides everything else– glue, glitter, googly eyes, and more. Basically, everything you’d ever need to turn a jar into a spooky lantern. Admission to the museum is also free from 4pm-7pm, and you can check out the  latest mega-exhibition, The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster and of course tour the permanent stuff you already know and love. Then you’ll want to stick around for a free screening of the classic comedy Ghostbusters, to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Ghostbusting costumes (or legitimate uniforms) highly encouraged, naturally. Just leave the ectoplasm at home.

The American Visionary Arts Museum’s Free Fall Halloween Celebration takes place Thursday, October 30th from 4pm-7pm (with film screening starting at 7). The museum is located at 800 Key Highway in Baltimore. For more information, visit
