LUCAS, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas art gallery is hosting a show and benefit auction of decorative toilet seats to raise funds for a new public restroom.
The Flying Pig Studio and Gallery in Lucas is holding the Great
Toilet Seat Art Show and Silent Auction Saturday during the Annual
Adam's Apple Festival in the Russell County town. Selected toilet
seats will be sold at silent auction through Oct. 3.
Ceramic artist Eric Abraham is displaying more than 40 decorative toilet seats on the walls of the galley, which he owns and operates. The seat designs include a sharp-toothed alligator and another covered with barbed wire with a warning to "Sit Lightly.''
Plans call for the restroom to be named "Bowl Plaza'' with buildings shaped like toilet tanks and entrances resembling a toilet seat. A walkway will look like an unfurling roll of toilet paper.
