Description

The Schandua Museum is a small white-stone building which houses a collection of conceptual sculpture, now thick with dust.

History

Built in 1897 in a peculiar Old West style, quite out of keeping with its neighbouring buildings, the Schandua was originally a saloon which offered musical evenings, cheap haircuts for out-of-towners, and basic lodgings by the hour. Its owner, Frederick Schandua, also operated the auto repair shop next door, which was one of the first mechanical repair shops to switch from fixing bicycles to repairing and maintaining the new-fangled automobiles at the turn of the century. By capitalising on the popularity of the internal combustion engine, Schandua made his fortune and converted his notorious flophouse into a museum to restore his good name.

Sadly, Schandua's knowledge of art was inversely proportional to his knowledge of mechanical engineering, and he blew his millions on a series of grotesque sculptures by deservedly obscure artists. Some etymologists believe the word 'squander' derives from a mispronunciation of the name Schandua. Nonetheless, the museum proved a huge hit with irony-loving hipster tourists in the late twentieth century, who came to mock the artworks.

A likeness of Schandua still stands in the hallway of his museum, overseeing his embarrassing collection of tat.
