Winter Haven, Florida: 24-Foot-Tall Potty Chair

Built in 2015 by artist Steven Chayt in his yard. He first had the idea in 1992, but it had to wait until he retired. The chair seat is a clown face with the phrase, "place your trust here." Chayt says it means whatever you think it means.

Seeing is believing. So we went to find the potty chair.

24-Foot-Tall Potty Chair

I'm an artist and I had to go visit this amazing site in person -- and the cool thing is it's only about 30 miles from where I live, yet I never knew it existed until finding it on Roadside America. You can walk right up to it even though it's on private property. Just be respectful of the owner of said property (who's the artist who created the chair). We were told the neighbors protested the building of the chair and say it's an eyesore... I say good for the artist in not letting others hinder him.

The clown is on the top of the platform in the center, while the coordinates and text are underneath.

It's a potty chair all right. Didn't expect that in the middle of a residential neighborhood!
