A Dog Doing What? Perhaps the World’s Most Bizarre Art Exhibit?

Yes, what you’re looking at is an enormous dog peeing on the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, California. The 28-foot sculpture isn’t meant to be an insult to the institution, but is the latest work of contemporary artist Richard Jackson. Titled “Bad Dog,” the piece features a spray hose that lets out a stream of yellow paint onto the wall of the museum leaving a puddle of fake pee on the ground. The sculpture is part of the museum’s retrospective exhibit on Jackson’s work titled, “Ain’t Painting a Pain,” which will run until May 5, 2013. Above image is via Orange County Museum of Art.

This isn’t the first time the Sacramento-born artist has pushed the boundaries of creativity. Check out the video below of an exhibit he put on in 2011 titled “Little Girl’s Room” at L.A.’s David Kordansky Gallery.
