Every purchase supports the Museum's mission to empower lifelong curiosity and connection to the natural world through the art of Walter Anderson and kindred artists.
This 12 oz mug is adorned with the Possum from Walter Anderson's Little Room Murals along with one of Walter's most beloved quotes:
"Beware by whom you are called sane."
The Little Room served as Walter Anderson’s sanctuary on the mainland during the latter years of his life. When he could, Anderson would spend his time on Horn Island, but he still had obligations on the mainland. To mentally transport himself to Horn Island, Walter Anderson painted the Little Room to portray life and time on the island. Known as “Creation at Sunrise,” these floor-to-ceiling murals chronicle the transition from night to day through the synthesis of plants, animals, and brilliant colors.
