An example, you say? How about an art display in a toilet? Well if you're near Yellow Springs, Ohio, you can take in the Chamber Pot Gallery. In the restrooms of a replica of an 1880 train station, they've hung original works of art. And I think I know why the Springs are yellow.
Now I've never been to Yellow Springs and I sure as hell wouldn't go to a replica of a train station, but the article describes the town as having "a 1960s feel with people in tie-dyed clothing and other hippie-like attire frequenting streets lined with artisan shops." I wonder what's causing such a tourism problem that they've desperately started to decorate the commode? Nothing says tourist fun like fashion from 40 years ago.
They've masterfully tricked people into coming back if they want to see all the art. They're swapping the men's and women's art after 6 months. Like the line for the women's art isn't long enough. And there's always that rebel art aficianado who'll ditch the women's art and just go for the men's art because the line is too long while her boyfriend plays look out.
But I think they need some slogans for the big art display in Yellow Springs. May I suggest the following:
- Leonardo in the Loo
- Picasso in the Pooper
- Cezanne in the Crapper
- Michaelangelo in the Men's Room
- Lorenzetti in the Ladies Lounge
- Warhol in the Stall
- Rockwell in the Restroom
- Uccello at the Urinal
- Toulesse in the Toilet
- Going and Gainsborough
- Whizzing With Whistler
- van Gogh Vacuation
But they probably should go with a classic.
Here I sit,
Amidst the art.
Came to poo,
Could only fart.
When someone says that this art stinks, you'll know why.
