Nudists to Descend on City Hall to Show Their "Naughty Bits," Which They Call Art
|Is this the work of art?|
In short, consider this event a quasi art show. And hey, it's free.
Naked people say they will be out there to show city officials that Supervisor Scott Wiener's proposal to ban public nudity is "totally un-San Franciscan." They claim the Castro rep is interfering with their artistic abilities, if you will.

And here's how they explain it:
This legislation is an attack on San Francisco Art and Culture. It affects everyone's freedom. Remember: as an artist working in nude themes 100 years ago you would have had to put fig leaves on the "naughty bits." That type of thinking is coming back unless we resist.We called Supervisor Wiener to find out 1. Does he like art? and 2. What does he consider art?
"So they are saying walking around your neighborhood without your pants on is art? I totally disagree with that," Wiener told us.
|Or is this the work of art?|
The naked men are planning to bring classical nude paintings to the Tuesday afternoon protest to remind the city supervisors (in case they forgot) that the "human body is sacred and beautiful, and that an attack on our right to be nude is an attack on sacredness, beauty, love, freedom, art and creative self-expression."
After the "art show," nudists plan to hold a naked art contest so local artists can show us all how nudity in art is just as alive now as it was in the times of the classic masters.
Winners (not to be confused with "wieners") will be announced at an after-party at 7 p.m. at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission (at 10th St.). The party will includes DJ Jules O'Keefe, food, and of course naked company. Artwork will be displayed at the after party as well.
All events are clothing-optional (come as bare as you dare).
