New York, August 28 (ANI): A nude model, who was arrested on charges of public lewdness at the Met on Wednesday, has said that she wants New Yorkers to stop being so prudish, and start accepting some bare skin.
"I want people to have the freedom to express themselves. I want the city to drop the charges," the New York Post quoted Kathleen Neill, 26, as saying.
The Arizona native said that the purpose behind her stunt in the museum's Hall of Arms and Armor was to get people thinking about the bare essentials of art.
"I would love to be able to go to museums and see stuff like this happen on any scale," she said.
She was busted after whipping off her clothes, and streaking through the exhibit hall as photographer Zach Hyman snapped away.
Neill was grabbed by guards, and arrested on charges of public lewdness. (ANI)
