Honduran folk artist Derek Webster spent much of his career creating sculptures from found pieces of wood, metal, and other abandoned objects he found in alleys near his Chicago home. Initially created to brighten his yard, Webster’s work became an official “thing” when gallery owner Paul Waggoner made a wrong turn and spotted the eccentric creations. Soon enough, the sculptures made it into the permanent collections of the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Luce Foundation Center at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Anacostia Community Museum, where visitors can now see nine pieces by Webster.
