Radical woodworker and found art collector R.W. Northcutt has been gathering artifacts and paraphernalia for his Animaliana collection since 2003. The collection is made up of objects relating to animal life, and Indigenous Genius at Art League of Houston organizes the items (which relate to animal woodworkers like termites, beavers and woodpeckers) into a small history exhibit, linking the work of the animals with human social issues, labor movements, construction and philosophy. Northcutt visited countless flea markets and auctions in order to accumulate these artifacts, some of which date back to the 19th century. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Through August 26. 1953 Montrose. For information, call 713-523-9530 or visit www.artleaguehouston.com.
