The American Visionary Art Museum’s seventeenth annual, thematic mega-exhibition ALL THINGS ROUND: Galaxies, Eyeballs & Karma, open October 7, 2011 – September 2, 2012. is a celebration and call to awareness of the circular and voluptuous nature of life. From the micro-atomic spin of electrons encircling a nucleus, to the macro orbit of planets rounding our sun, ALL THINGS ROUND delights in the curves, spirals, orbs, and bubbles of full-bodied beauty that playfully manifest throughout art, science, and beyond.

Scott Weaver, Rolling Though Bay 1974 -2008, Toothpicks.

This wholly original art exhibition features the exuberant works of 70+ inspired, intuitive artists including: Scott Weaver’s 100,000 toothpick wonder, “Rolling Through The Bay;” Adolf Wölfli’s intricate mandala-like works; spherical sculptures of artists who are sight-impaired; and the micro dot sock-thread embroideries of Ray Materson. Don’t miss Frank Warren’s all-time best true karmic “PostSecrets;” the 3-D sacred yarn paintings of the Huichol Indians; and a cosmic tribute to cyclical notions of time – including an exploration into the fast-approaching 2012 Winter Solstice “end” of the Mayan Calendar!
