This in from Penn Design: LIVE NUDE ART BENEFIT AUCTION, UPENN

And this in from the Print Center: WARNING: Graphic Content

A contact high (have you walked down the street in Philadelphia, lately?) must have inspired two rather conservative organizations to play with titillating come-ons for their auctions. Not that sex and art is anything new. It’s just the surprise of who’s doing IT that made me take notice.

Here’s the info on each:

UPENN LIVE NUDE ART AUCTION

Friday, November 30th 6-9 p.m.
Meyerson Hall, 210 South 34th Street, University of Pennsylvania
Auction preview: Nov. 28 and 29, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Did that say Robert Pruitt!!!???
