Photo Op: Another Toilet – This One For Modern Art Fans

100 years ago, Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain” scandalized the art world.  An exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (which, thanks to a relationship between Duchamp and a previous director of the museum, has one of the world’s best collections of Duchamp’s work) highlights the importance of this event.  I came across this photo-op by accident (luckily, not literally):

“Fountain” in the first floor women’s room

It’s located in the women’s room on the first floor of the museum.  No idea if there are others located in the museum – or how long it will be around.  But, for the moment, anyone with access to the women’s room can create their own “Fountain” photo.
