Rebecca Hoffberger is the co-founder, director, and principal curator of the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM), a unique national museum and education center devoted to championing creative intuition and invention. A long-time devotee of fresh thinking, societal betterment, and spirituality, Hoffberger was accepted to college at 15 but chose to accept legendary mime Marcel Marceau’s invitation to become his first American apprentice in Paris. Interest in wordless expressions of those life experiences “too powerful for mere words” continued, inspiring her own ballet company and in 1995, the critically acclaimed AVAM, that playfully explores humanity’s most serious subjects via original, thematic, annual mega exhibitions that combine art, science, philosophy and fun. Hoffberger believes, “Compassionate, creative acts of social justice constitute life’s highest performance art.”
