Art League Houston – Indigenous Genius by R.W. Northcutt

We visit the Art League Houston to check out Indigenous Genius, a tongue-in-cheek exhibition by R.W. Northcutt, a so-called pioneering collector of “animaliana.” Mr. Northcutt shows us artifacts and what look like tools which – he claims! – were made by wood-working critters such as beavers, woodpeckers, mud-dauber wasps and termites.

Bob Stevenson chats with artist R.W. Northcutt at the gallery.
