Bad Dog Sculpture

What 'passes' for art in California

Goulburn has the Big Merino, Kingston has the Big Lobster, Coffs Harbour has the Big Banana, Orange County has...
Bad Dog Sculpture thanks to Howard Chapman

Do you remember anything from your last museum visit?

Sacramento-born artist Richard Jackson pushes the boundaries of what can be considered 'art.' His 'Bad Dog' sculpture is made from matte-black parts, and towers above the Orange County Museum of Art (Orange County, California) with one leg raised in the classic dog-urination stance. Every so often, a spray hose inside the massive canine unleashes a fountain of yellow paint onto the wall of the museum. The fake pee dribbles down the wall to pool on the ground, where curious museumgoers appreciate it with the classic, 'but is it art?' posture.
