American and Dutch artists have adorned a used pontoon boat with salvaged material to produce a floating gallery, scheduled to launch Tuesday.They expect their 220-mile voyage to take 10 days, starting from Cottonton, Alabama, down the Chattahoochee and Apalachicola rivers, to the Gulf of Mexico, where they hope to exhibit the artwork they create along the way.

A professional cameraman will document the journey — and, if the mosquitoes and alligators don’t interfere too much, the film, artwork and boat might end up at the Art Basel show Dec. 3-6 in Miami Beach, Florida.That’s the grand plan they hatched last year during breakfast while overlooking Apalachicola Bay.Seale, Alabama, folk artist Butch Anthony, 51, had led his Dutch guests — fellow artists Diederick Kraaijeveld, 52, and Niek Wagemans, 36, and filmmaker Gideon Elings, 55 — from his Museum of Wonder in Seale through southeast Alabama and the Florida panhandle on a road trip dubbed the “World’s First Drive-Thru Gallery.”
