The art museum dust collection began in 1996 and is comprised of dust samples from art museums worldwide. The art museum dust collection is comprised of dust samples, certificates, and microscopy imagery of the dust. Collectors are invited to compare, wear and share the dust and in doing so celebrate the beauty of this misunderstood fine art product. Entropy offers collectors and endless supply of striking dust samples composed of tiny castaway pieces from selected institutions, decaying art, art audiences, artists, and art administrators. Microscopic photography reveals the high aesthetic properties in art museum dust and its uncanny relationship to modernist abstraction.

The newest product from the Art Museum Dust Collection is Art Museum Drink Coasters. Art audiences everywhere may enjoy their favorite beverage while placing dust images on tables or fine surfaces. Especially designed as a performance for museum events, the coasters bearing dust imagery may be spread about art spaces as people enjoy cultural events. In this way the dust changes from an embarrassment to a dynamic aesthetic presence in the museum.

So please bring your own beverage & we can make lots of lovely dust…
