Art Review

At a time when religious intolerance seems more than ever in the news, the yearlong exhibition that opens today at the American Visionary Art Museum sounds a small but poignant note of sanity amid the current cacophony of doctrinal zealotry, hatred and fear.

All Faiths Beautiful: From Atheism to Zoroastrianism is a show of about 200 works by "outsider" or visionary artists inspired by the universal human impulse to seek meaning and hope through the act of faith.

If you go All Faiths Beautiful: From Atheism to Zoroastrianism runs through Aug. 31 at the American Visionary Art Museum, 800 Key Highway. Call 410-244-1900 or go to avam.org.
