If you’ve already cruised by Hampden’s 34th Street and taken your own tacky lights tour all around town, you may think that you’ve seen all the tinsel-and-snowflake wackiness there is to see in Baltimore. Think again.

The American Visionary Art Museum‘s current exhibit includes Palm Springs artist Kenny Irwin Jr.‘s “Have Yourself a Happy Little Robotomas,” which pretty much looks like a Vegas casino crossed with Candyland crossed with a really trippy mall Santa display.

I know exactly what they look like, and I make them.”
