According to a Times Now report, the toilet was established back in 1992, but, when bio-toilets were introduced, this particular one was left unused. Seeing the dilapidated condition of the unused toilet, three people namely Madhavan Pillai, Shobana Chandrashekar, and Anita Nanjappa decided to take it upon themselves to transform it into something artistic that would engage the public in its activities. The trio came up with this innovative idea of building an art gallery and library during a clean-up drive two years back.

At present, the art centre is showcasing the works of R. Maniannan titled ‘My People-The Nagas’.
