LegI have got to get to Australia!

Museums, through a variety of rules such as “No touching”, “No pictures”, “No food”, and “No running”, have garnered a reputation of being kind of stuffy. But theMuseum of Contemporary Art in Sydneyadded another rule to the list for two days in April: “No clothing”. Looks like art lovers finally get to let loose and take it all off.

Artist Stuart Ringholt is giving naked tours of his new exhibition. The artists’s work often revolves around fear, embarrassment and abnormality, and this exhibition is no different. The birthday suit dress code will hopefully allow visitors to get closer to the art’s messages (and to their naked artist tour guide).

Are the people of Sydney ready to bare all for art? Museum curator Rachel Kent recently told The Wall Street Journal: “Sydney loves nude people.”

What do you think, readers? Would you go on a naked gallery tour? Is this a cheap publicity stunt or the future of museum tours? (We are so hoping it is the latter.)

The nude tours run for two days only next month, from April 27 – 29, 2012 at theMuseum of Contemporary Art Australia.

Always The One

All this time

You were the one

I dreamed of

All this time

You were the one

I could see

All this time

You were the one

I could feel

Far across the ocean

Over many lands

You were the one

Who was in my heart

I just never knew

Until finally

I found you

You were always

The one

Eye Of The Gypsy

The Eye Of The Gypsy

Look in her eyes, what do you see?

A colorful world, mystical fantasy

Filled with diamonds, pearls, and gold

Many great things, all to be sold

Exotic animals, magical places

Wonderful people, beautiful faces

 

Look in her eyes, what do you see?

An ocean of sadness and angry sea

Crowded shelters, dirty streets

Angry people, Needing to eat

Poor workers, small paychecks

Landlord asking, is rent paid yet

 

And so the life of the gypsy

Nothing is like what it seems

Rich and colorful on the outside

Dark and pitiful on the inside

Glitter and gold shining bright

Dingy and cold every night

 

Gypsy beauty with a soul of gold

Always happy, truth be told

Enjoys life the gypsy way

Carefree and happy everyday

Heart full of love and forgiving

Never complains, always giving

 

She may be poor by man’s law

Sneered and abused, even outlawed

But her wealth is beyond measure

Her heart is her greatest treasure

Like the gypsy, I strive to be

Making my love deeper than the sea
