Dinner Information


Please join us at American Visionary Art Museum ( for the ISERN dinner. A beautiful facility located at the base of historic Federal Hill and in the heart of Baltimore's Inner Harbor area. The AVAM provides a unique canvas of visual art housed in three buildings. The assortment of art ranges from sculptures from bottle caps and paper cups, structures built out of thousands of toothpicks, recycled glass mosaics, postcards, 1800 pound ball made of bras, and many fantastic exhibits. Given the diversity of art, one may be completely overwhelmed by the expanse of the museum and need go back for another round.
