WTF | What The Fun
Unusual, Odd and Whimsical Art from the Collection
On view through November 5, 2023
There's Something Strange and Unusual Afoot...
The title says it all!!! Visitors will be treated to a wide array of surprisingly unique objects from the WCA vaults, some not previously displayed.
From an Elvis altar to an orphan Chicago cow (which was kicked out of the parade) to a miniature Ghanaian fish coffin intended to serve as the final resting place for the ashes of one particular museum donor, you’ll be treated to chills, thrills, grins and giggles in this seriously (or outrageously) entertaining art exhibition.
