American Visionary Art Museum

I don't know how it happened, but I forgot my camera on the day I visited the American Visionary Art Museum. These photos were taken with my iPhone. 

At any rate, if you are ever in Baltimore Maryland with a day to spare, check this place out.  You won't be disappointed. There are amazing things around every corner. 
 Photography isn't allowed in the museum itself, these photos are of the building's exterior - yes it's mosaic, and most of it is pieces of mirror, so they reflect the light differently depending on the weather and where you are standing.
We were there on a rainy day, so the sky was white, but when we looked at the building from another angle, it reflected the buildings around it.
This is the entrance. If you look very carefully, you can see part of my reflection. I'm wearing a light green jacket, which is visible in the second panel from the right on the bottom row.
Here you can see the mosaic is comprised of lots of recycled pieces of glass.
And the building itself is not the only thing covered in bits of mirror glass mosaic.  Yes, this is a school bus.

I -told- you it was amazing!
