In the midst of all the HAA public art controversy, the Houston arts community may not have noticed a more private art addition to the city. Art League Houston (ALH) recently unveiled new artwork in its restrooms!
A quick Google search reveals that most retailers have a subsection for “bathroom art,” but most of the framed pictures of beaches, flowers, and vintage-looking bathroom products seem to suggest that they are simply cheap enough to toss when they get moldy. Zazzle and Wayfair also have some funny, passive-aggressive posters on proper bathroom hygiene. But artists Nina Marinick (also ALH’s evening gallery manager) and Jajah Gray went all out on the immersive bathroom art experience.
Just relax, take care of your business, and enjoy the colorful semi-psychedelic art appropriate to the occasion.
