Who knew museum curators could throw so much shade? The White House asked the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York about getting an art piece by Vincent van Gogh. They wanted the van Gogh piece to place in President Donald Trump’s living quarters.
Curator Nancy Spector told them that the van Gogh piece, “Landscape with Snow,” was not available. However, she could offer them an 18-karat gold toilet titled “America” instead.
According to the Washington Post, Maurizio Cattelan created “America” in 2016. The piece, which symbolizes America’s obsession with wealth, totally works. The museum put it in the fifth floor bathroom for guests to use.
Furthermore, Nancy Spector ended her email:
“We are sorry not to be able to accommodate your original request, but remain hopeful that this special offer may be of interest.”
