Wait, the Toilet Seat Art Museum Is Actually a Thing? Why Yes, It Is!

Looking for a one-of-a-kind way to spend your weekend? Then check out Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Art Museum, the most unique art exhibit in Texas! This home-gallery features over 1,000 hand-crafted toilet seats that this artist turned into stunning works of folk art.

A retired master plumber and lifelong, self-taught artist, Barney Smith has been working on his toilet seat art for over fifty years. His work consists of collaged found objects that he works into his paintings and drawings, using a toilet seat as his canvas of choice. Part assemblage, part collage, part hand lettering and drawing, his art is on display in his garage-turned-gallery and is open for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to support this San Antonio treasure and see this exceptional and eccentric collection of art at Barney Smith’s Toilet Art Museum!

Although we provide the utmost luxury at Hillcreste at Thousand Oaks Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
