This energetic space dedicated to visionary art (which is, simply put, created by self-taught artists who play by their own rules) is more fun house than museum. Vollis Simpson’s giant WhirliGig—a 55-foot-tall, wind-powered sculpture made of found objects—welcomes visitors outside. Inside, you’ll find works made from toothpicks and a figure carved from an applewood tree.
