Expose yourself to art

Remember the famous photo of the man flashing a statue? The man would later become mayor of Portland, Oregon.

Art imitates satire. A museum in Austria now is permitting visitors in without fee if they are naked (or wearing a swimsuit only). The excuse? A "midsummer heat wave" and an exhibit called "The Naked Truth," a collection of early 1900s erotic art.

UPDATE (8/1): Now Yahoo posts some photos (natch!). There's one of a guy, too, but you don't want to see it, do you?
