Don't dump on this fun art in-stall-ation. You don't have to flush your money down the toilet to plop on by, and there's no need for a deposit. I hear it's the "number two" art exhibit in the state. I think you can even see a full moon occasionally from here, along with Uranus. It's a crap shoot whether or not you meet Ronnie Haer, the king of the throne, but you'll feel like you're holding a royal flush if you do. It's a fun break if you're driving through, no s--t (Pardon my potty mouth). Public restroom not available.

Needs a lot of work. This place was a mess. Not worth the short detour.

With toilets as a medium, there's a constant peril of crossing the line from art environment to trash dump.

What a crappy site to see! In the middle of this tiny town on US 59 you see a carefully placed garden of toilets. Many more have been added since 2016. And the house next door has a family of mannequins in the picture window dressed in Christmas sweaters. I had to do a double take; hilarious! I will be stopping in the daytime on my return trip for a better photo for sure!

Thank you Ronnie Haer! The owner came out to meet us and showed us around and even posed for a picture. Hint, there are newspapers stashed in the mailbox to enhance the photo opportunity. It's surrounding a bricked fire pit that Ronnie promises can host a unique gathering spot on occasions.

A fine example of "found object" yard art. A bunch of toilets, an old claw-foot bathtub, some plants, and a few always-fashionable pink flamingos. There is no explanation or other documentation for the work of art. It just sits in someone's yard.
