Don’t miss the Museum of Wonder exhibition at the Wiregrass Museum! This event started on July 21st and goes until September 30th. Be sure to stop by and see what this exhibition has to offer!
The Artist Behind the Wonder
Museum of Wonder showcases the work of Butch Anthony, a self-taught artist, storyteller and maker of oddities. This unique exhibition of Anthony’s work explores the power of an “art environment,” when art’s meaning is influenced by the space around it. Anthony utilized a number of techniques in his work – including painting, mixed media collage, large-scale sculpture and embroidery – pushing the boundaries of found materials into new creations.
Other Work by This Artist
Anthony also built “The World’s First Drive Thru Museum” out of shipping containers. It sits off of U.S. Hwy 431 in Seale, Alabama, and exhibits a rotating display of Anthony’s handcrafted curiosities and collections. Anthony founded the Possum Trot, a barbeque restaurant turned junk auction house, and the Museum of Wonder, where his wonderful creations and bizarre collections can be admired and purchased. His original designs and compositions are acclaimed both regionally and internationally.
