Toilet Lid Art

Who knew? You can paint, draw, and even sculpt on an ordinary toilet seat lid. Today’s Wall Street Journal* features artist Barney Smith, who’s created over 1,000 pieces of toilet seat art. Here’s a photo of his museum in Alamo Heights, Texas. The museum is free, and gets about a thousand visitors every year…including school field trips and even executives from toilet seat companies. The Wall Street Journal article names a few other toilet seat artists, like Ohio artist Celeste Massullo and Wisconsin artist Lori Schory, who says “Art isn’t just for someone in an art gallery”.
