Not only is the museum the national repository for the artworks created by self-taught artists, the building's architecture is an artistic creation unto itself, winning many national & international awards for its design and beauty. The venue is easily accessible by foot, or by transport, and convenient to all of Baltimore's Inner Harbor hotels and downtown attractions. AVAM is capable of hosting any kind of wedding from small and intimate gatherings to large-scale receptions. The large Sculpture Barn & Garden can accommodate up to 125 seated for dinner and dancing, or more than 250 for a standing cocktail reception.
