Bathroom Art: Stardust Room

Sometimes we find art in art galleries and other times we find it while peeing in public restrooms. Jess and I have always been intrigued by bathroom graffiti as well as the artwork that people decide to hang up near the commode. Is it art or is it (pun intended) a bunch of crap? We don’t mind taking the pictures, and you can answer that question for yourself.

The following pictures were taken in the women’s restroom of the Stardust Room—a local favorite for many local artists. 

Located close to the floor next to the toilet is this drawing of a tiger's face. Someone must have been in there for a while to draw this, and we applaud your effort... and also hope that it was the need to draw that took up your time and NOT horrible constipation. 

On the wall is a painting that seems to represent music, masks, and stuff--I have never been the best at interpreting paintings.

I see a cat face pattern here:

Also, someone put a sticker of the word "complete" on the toilet paper dispenser. What does this mean? Does someone want people to "complete" their bathroom experience by wiping? Or is it something deeper than that? It's a mystery! 

Finally, remember to do this: 

Overall, I grade the art in the Stardust bathroom a B-. I enjoyed the cat faces and the "complete" mystery of the sticker on the toilet dispenser, but I also found it to be lacking in both quantity and quality. I expected more from you Stardust Room, but at least it was cleaner than the majority of bar bathrooms in town. You might want to do something about this crack, though:
