Museum Promotes Exhibit With Free Entry For Barely Clothed

The Next Wave points to a story about Vienna's Leopold Museum, which, in a move very unlike most staid art museums, promoted it's "The Naked Truth" art exhibit by offering free entry to anyone wearing just a swimsuit or no clothes at all. Many people took the museum up on its offer including 52-year-old Bettina Huth who visited the museum topless.

Nudity being just an excuse to create a media circus, Huth didn't understand what all the fuss was about saying, "I go into the steam bath every week, so I'm used to being naked."

The Leopold Museum's Director Peter Weinhaeupl said the goal was to offer people a means to beat the sweltering heat and to create a mini-scandal the way the exhibited works of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka and others did a century ago.
