The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) dedicated its new all-gender restrooms to renowned filmmaker and Baltimore native John Waters on Wednesday.

The museum's John Waters Restrooms will open to the public on Dec. 12. They are intended as a token of gratitude to 75-year-old Waters, who is a BMA trustee and willed the museum 375 pieces of art upon his death. The pieces include works from Andy Warhol, Diane Arbus, Roy Lichtenstein, Cy Twombly and Cindy Sherman as well as from Waters personally, according to The Baltimore Sun.

"Public restrooms make all people nervous," the filmmaker and artist said, per the Sun. "They’re unpredictable. They sometimes attract perverts. And they’re fueled by accidents, just like my favorite contemporary art.":snip:
