Time running out to see the 'Tree'


August 22, 1996

The American Visionary Art Museum's first major exhibit, "Tree of Life," will be closing Sept. 2. That means you have just a week and a half to catch this whimsical, woodsy wave of "outsider" artists.

The acclaimed show consists of works of art that use wood and trees as inspiration. See items ranging from a model of the ship Lusitania made from 193,000 toothpicks to art fashioned from apple crates.

The museum will close after Sept. 2 (except for its Joy America Cafe) and then reopen for its next exhibit, "Wind in My Hair," on Oct. 12. "Wind" will celebrate icons of air and speed.

The museum is at the Inner Harbor at 800 Key Highway. Summer hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday; and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Admission is $6 for adults; $4 for seniors and students; free for children 4 and under. Group discounts are available. Call (410) 244-1900 for more information.
