Missing crucial info in Apache conf (httpd.conf) to serve static files

To get Apache to be able to serve files statically, the handler (mod-wsgi, or uWSGI) must be disabled for those folders. So, you need another directive under the ones you list, that looks like this:
<Location /static> SetHandler default-handler </Location>
I believe the /static location directive must occur after the / Location directive to turn the handler off correctly.
This allows the request to be caught by Apache rather than uWSGI, and redirected to the static file folder.
Also, the line:
Alias /static/ /usr/local/wsgi/static/
Should actually look like this:
Alias /static /usr/local/wsgi/static/
Without the trailing slash on the alias.
