Chicago, Illinois: The S--t FountainOne homeowner's bubbly artistic statement about too many pooping dogs in the neighborhood. If you drink from it you are either brave or very thirsty.
Visitor Tips and News About The S--t Fountain
Not worth your time. Nowhere to park to get out and see the actual fountain. In a residential neighborhood. I wouldn't recommend it.[Natasha, 06/08/2013]
Protest art! Whatever the reason for building this monument to canine feces, this water fountain is true tongue-in-cheek humor. At first glance one might think it is merely a neighborhood front stoop waterfall. To appreciate it, you need to get out of your vehicle and take a closer look. The bronze "dog pile" sits atop what appears to be a marble pillar. Water flows quietly and gently over the top creating a lovely ripple effect contrasting starkly with the reproduction canine defecation.[Jenn B, 07/28/2012]

The S--t Fountain
I am a local in the Chicago area, and while passing through a West Side neighborhood, I came across a unique fountain, with the name "S--t Fountain" on the side. The fountain was apparently created by a resident who got tired of dogs crapping and nobody cleaning it up, so he built a monument to it.
The fountain serves water, that comes out of the turd, which is a bronze replica of actual dog crap.[Rick Jaymz, 08/04/2009]
Not Photoshop, it's a real piece of protest art.
