AMERICAN FOLK ART MUSEUM

I finally made time to fly out to NYC a couple weeks ago to see the sights, eat some great food, stay at the Ace, and meet up with Jeff (the founder of this fine blog). At the top of my to do list was checking out the American Folk Art Museum and man did it deliver. I've wanted to see this place for a long, long time. The AFAM has a small permanent Henry Darger collection, which if you haven't heard of/seen Darger's work, please do. A documentary about his life and his made up world titled "In the Realms of the Unreal" came out in 2004. Long story short, this place was a dream come true for me. If you ever find yourself in the big city, go. You can also check out an image library of the museums collection online here.

    One of my favorite buildings, Todd Williams and Billie Tsien make beautiful architecture, but this is my favorite.
