The Button King
Seventy-five year old Dalton Stevens believes buttons are and can be a work of art. He’s been practicing his button-art for the last fifteen years. He started the hobby during bouts of insomnia when he needed something to keep him busy. This hobby quickly turned into passion. His first work of art was the button-suit in which during a period of four days when Stevens couldn’t sleep he sewed on 16,333 buttons to a suit.
Recently he opened a museum to showcase all of his creations, including a Chevrolet Chevette adorned with 149,000 buttons. The Button Museum is surely like something you’ve never seen before, but different is always a good thing!
