Yes, you can use it, but, only if you don’t mind the presence of a security guard. The toilet, titled “Maurizio Cattelan: America,” will have a full-time security guard who will stand outside the bathroom to ensure no one is vandalizing the toilet.
The Guggenheim paid for the toilet with private funds of an undisclosed amount. However, this art work will be the first time a usable toilet has been on display at the Guggenheim.
