Short film on Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Art Museum

San Antonio, Texas has what is probably the world's largest collection of toilet seat art under one roof: Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Art Museum. Take a couple of minutes to enjoy Wes Plate's profile of a charming old guy's lifelong hobby.

The inspiration came at a plumbing supply shop over 50 years ago:

I said, "What are y'all gonna do with all of these toilet seats laying out here?" He said, "We're gonna put 'em in that dumpster." Well, I said "I'm doing a little bit of artwork. I'd like to have some of these lids to put some artwork on."
