Butch Anthony is a self-taught artist and collector of objects and antiques. He grew up on his family’s 80-acre property in Seale, Alabama, where he lives and works today. At the age of fourteen (1970), he built a one-room log cabin that became a workshop. He builds furniture, sculptures, and creates other mixed media art constructions. The cabin became the home of his Museum Wonder.
“The Museum of Wonder is a modern-day cabinet of curiosities filled with art, artifacts, and found or gifted objects including the world’s largest gallstone and an actual footprint from Sasquatch!” ~museumofwonder.com
The Museum became too small and too popular for the log cabin to contain. In 2014, Butch built The World’s First Drive-Thru Museum out of shipping containers. It sits off U.S. HWY 431 in Seale, Alabama, and exhibits a rotating display of Butch’s handcrafted designs and curiosities.
