Hedgehog Heiress Funds Art Museum
Calico the hedgehog, heiress to a vast toilet paper tube fortune, has announced plans to build a new art museum in Philadelphia, PA.
The museum has been designed by famed architect Rem Koolhaas and will feature artworks by all the great hedgehog masters. It will also contain a special wing of artifacts from an ancient tribe of Māori hedgehogs.
“Calico has been a collector for years,” said museum curator Alison Kerny. “She’s amassed this amazing collection, but had no way to share it with the world. At the same time, most museums aren’t really designed for hedgehogs. They’re just too big.”
Calico’s museum is slated to open in 2017.
