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.

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.
