The Bathtub Art Museum is a not-for-profit museum dedicated to the bathtub in art. Artists have used the bathtub as a subject or in more cases, a supporting subject, in their creations since bathtubs as we know them today have become common pieces of furniture in the household. The majority of this bathtub art collection consists of postcards dating from 1900 to the current year. The Postcard as an art form is particularly of interest to me, especially with the subject of the bathtub. Postcards are a public form of correspondence while bathing in a bathtub is considered a private experience. I find it interesting how the two come together. As curator and director of this museum, I find I am more drawn to what is happening around the bathtub than the actual bathtub itself.
