Guggenheim’s 18-karat GOLD toilet set to open to the public
Lucky visitors to the Guggenheim in New York will be able to use a toilet that's created from 18-karat gold from Friday. While many people will work their entire lives and never see a gold fixture, the museum will allow people to 'interact' with the toilet for the price of the entrance feel, which is currently free to its members.
The facilities are made available to members of the public as part of an exhibit by Italian artist and sculptor Maurizio Cattelan and are expected to be at the museum for an indefinite period.
It's currently installed in one of the Guggenheim's one-person unisex bathrooms and according to the New Yorker, it's an exact replica of the facilities that had previously been installed in the cubicle"
