MPD Responds To Call For Nude People at Art Gallery
Apparently we've reached the point that we don't have any real crime over here because 5th District Officers responded to a call about naked people at an art gallery. The three naked people (two women and a man) were part of an opening exhibit Saturday night at Conner Contemporary Art Gallery. The three people were
"crawling" over "posing" with an overturned boat as part of the opening festivities. I'm told there was someone at the door to ensure that no unattended minors entered. MPD responded to the call with three officers, and one entered to check on the situation. I'm told that the opening was wrapping, or had wrapped, at that point. The officers reportedly hung around and chatted with the local ANC rep. and other gallery goers (many of whom were neighborhood residents). There was no incident, and no arrests were made. But thank God we have an alert citizen out there on the watch for naked people engaged in performance art. After all, it's not like we in PSA 504 have to worry about break-ins, or muggings, or car thefts...right? Err, wait...
