Obscura Day 2015: The Museum of Wonder

Join us for a guided tour of Butch Anthony's folk art mecca.

Join us in Seale, Alabama this Obscura Day for a guided tour of the Museum of Wonder and the World Famous Possum Trot Auction and junk store!

Artist Butch Anthony has been collecting discarded items since he was ten years old - everything from paintings and folk art to rusted metal, animal bones and taxidermy. Found objects and his own works of art eventually filled his rural home, and the incredible Museum of Wonder was born.

Folklorist Fred C. Fussell will be guiding us through Anthony's collections this Obscura Day as well as the surrounding woods for a viewing of the Drive-thru Museum of Wonder, ending with a private tour of the (closed) World Famous Possum Trot Auction and junk store.

Saturday, May 30; 2pm - 3pm Eastern Standard Time!!
Cost: Free, but RSVP required. Donations are greatly appreciated.
