As part of his retrospective Ain't Painting A Pain at the Orange County Museum of Art in California, contemporary artist Richard Jackson installed a 28-foot-tall Labrador Retriever on the side of the museum building that periodically emits yellow paint upon the building's wall. The 73-year-old artist specializes in the uncomfortable, as his radical works often attempt to rattle human sensibilities. The retrospective, which also features a painting consisting of 5,050 canvases, opened this week and will run through May 5.
