It’s getting so you can’t walk around nude in an art gallery any more.

And those who did notice took it much in stride.
“I thought it was cool to juxtapose the nude woman with the art in the room,” said Mike Markovich, a tourist from Toronto. “I was surprised by how many people didn’t even notice her.”
His friend, Elizabeth Epstein, added, “It’s fitting that such an art project would happen in a museum in New York City.”
Hyman asked, “Why is this wrong? There were thousands of people in the Met today looking at nudes as art, but as soon as there is a real nude, it’s a big problem.”
Neill had the same question, which she posed to the security guard who detained her.
