No nudes, it’s an art gallery

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

NEW YORK: It seems the only nudes al­lowed at New York City’s Metropoli­tan Mu­seum of Art are the ones in the col­lec­tion.

Po­lice ar­rested a 26year-old woman who was pos­ing naked for a pho­tog­ra­pher, and in full view of vis­i­tors, in the mu­seum’s arms and ar­mour depart­ment on Wed­nes­day.

Model Kath­leen Neill faces a charge of pub­lic lewd­ness.

De­fence at­tor ney Don­ald Schechter says the mu­seum is full of nude art, and to call what the model and her pho­tog­ra­pher were do­ing ob­scen­ity “is ridicu­lous”.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Zach Hy­man di­rected the shoot.

He’s been get­ting some at­ten­tion lo­cally for pho­tograph­ing nude mod­els on sub­ways and that his pho­tos are not por no­graphic. – Sapa-AP
