Here’s one museum you can enjoy without even getting out of your car: a drive-thru museum in Seale, Ala.

Created by artist Butch Anthony, it’s a collection of odd items — many of which people have given him — that he has decorated and set up inside shipping containers cut out with large display windows.

There’s a gallstone from 1971 billed as the largest with a poem it inspired, a two-headed duck in a domed jar and an assortment of fossils.

“Then I’ve got it mixed with my artwork,” he says. “I take old portraits from like the 1890s, but then I put bones on top of them, sort of like an X-ray, like you can see through them. That’s the kind of art I do. I call it Intertwangleism. Sort of like cubism. That’s my ism.”

Can you tell which cow wallpaper is the original? Sturtevant’s doubles make for a unique visitor experience. Curatorial assistant Ingrid Langston reveals the connections between original works on view around the museum and the doubles on view in Sturtevant: Double Trouble.
