Houses the World’s Largest Collection of Images of Art Museum Toilets

New York, NY. – The Art Museum Toilet Museum of Art is proud announce the launch its website, which displays a large selection of its collection of images of toilets taken at various art museums from around the world. Ranging from exclusive images of the Metropolitan, to the behind-closed-doors shots of the Hermitage to the decaying yet still flushing pictures of the Mongolian Art Museum, this collection offers rich examples of the world's museums best offerings.

The launch of this website is the first step in presenting the museum's collection and is a long-anticipated turning point in its history. The museum was officially founded in 2005 and since its inception staff have been collecting images from around the world. This collection is believed by experts to be the worlds largest and was built to showcase the forgotten art that can be found in every museum.

"This museum was founded in the spirit of Marcel Duchamp, who in 1917 produced the sculpture Fountain and changed the way we viewed art,” stated Director Robert Schlemielle. “This piece essentially showcased that art may not be hanging in the proud walls of a museum gallery, but in the common objects and in even in the restroom. So today we launch this website asking some of the same questions about the current art establishment and its high brow art."
