Do Women STILL Have to be Naked to Get Into the Met. Museum?

Every so often, we count the number of women artists vs. the number of female nudes on exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in NY. Below are our posters from 1989, 2005 and 2012.

Asked to design a billboard for the Public Art Fund in New York, we welcomed the chance to do something that would appeal to a general audience. One Sunday morning we conducted a "weenie count" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, comparing the number of nude males to nude females in the artworks on display. The results were very "revealing " -- as much so today when we did our first count.
