Mosaic bathrooms. Bowl Plaza

The public restrooms in Lucas feature stunning mosaic artwork symbolic of various items flushed. Folk, grassroots, outsider art.

Bowl Plaza: World's Most Artsy Public Toilets

The quirky town of Lucas, population 400, is famous for its Grassroots Art. Because 15,000+ tourists visit each year, Lucas needed public restrooms. Not being like most towns, Lucas made their restrooms a piece of art. The building is shaped like a toilet tank, its entrance is shaped like a raised toilet lid, the benches in front of the building are curved like a toilet seat, and the sidewalk in front undulates like an unspooled toilet roll. The inside walls are all mosaics created by local citizens.

A raffle was held June 2 to see who would have the honor of "First Flush."
