The Guggenheim's Dazzling Burn: Sorry Mr. President, All Outta Van Goghs But How About This Golden Toilet?
Behold the glorious panache of the Guggenheim's chief curator after the Trumps made the tacky request to “borrow” a Vincent Van Gogh painting for use in their living quarters. No can do, she politely responded, but we can offer an "alternative": an 18-karat, fully functioning, solid gold toilet, an interactive satirical work by artist Maurizio Cattelan entitled "America." Because, notes one pundit, "Nothing says Trump's America like a solid gold toilet." Well-played, artists all.
