The American Visionary Art Museum is a Baltimore institution that collects outsider art. Bergdorf Goodman is a Fifth Avenue institution that's never been an outsider in any capacity. The combination, which you can see in Bergdorf's windows through July 20, is kind of amazing, pairing clothing by Jason Wu and Rodarte and Oscar De La Renta with metal aliens, wooden cowboys, and a sculpture of famed drag queen Divine.
