‘Take a trump’ in these gold toilets being placed around the world
Resistance art is just like any other art: sometimes your mom is going to point at it and ask why it’s considered art. That’s a question that could take a whole book to answer, and we’re here to talk about these gold toilets, so just trust us, it’s art.
Toilets that have been spray painted gold and labeled “Take a Trump” have been popping up across the country. A stencil of a pig wearing a crown is painted on the inside of the lids.
They started appearing on Trump’s 100th day in office and have been spotted in Denver, Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, and Chigaco, just to name a few cities.
The pieces have been organized by art collective Art Finksters. A spokesperson for the Finksters talked to HuffPo, and said that between 50 and 60 artists nationwide, and possibly internationally, have signed on to create and place a gold toilet. “There are still more to come,” they said. “Every city deserves a toilet.”
Many of the toilets have become photo ops for members of the Resistance, but a few have actually been taken to be used in people’s homes, according to the Finksters spokesperson.
Hey, whatever you need to get it — your rage, obv — out of your system.
