AVAM Takes Manhattan

When I first saw these images from the fantastical window displays of Bergdorf Goodman, I couldn’t help but think of The Muppets Take Manhattan – a kind of ridiculous combination, yet it totally works. The high end department store has teamed up with Baltimore’s own American Visionary Art Museum, juxtaposing high end fashion to a handful of work by visionary “outsider artists” that is part of the museum’s permanent collection. The result is a feast for the eyes. If you’re in NYC between now and July 20th be sure to stop by the windows on Fifth Avenue. You can get more of the scoop on the collaboration here. {Thanks, Lara and Jim for the images!}

P.S. For anyone in Baltimore, the museum is organizing a trip up to Manhattan to see the windows, and a couple great studio tours on July 12. For more information, click here.
