The World Naked Bike Ride is scheduled for June 8 and the Art Museum is coordinating their cool looking Cyclopedia Exhibit for the same day. In fact the naked bike riders will begin their ride in the park blocks by the museum. The museum is also hosting a special exhibit for the exhibitionists encouraging them to come to the display nude. You can guarantee more perverts per square inch than a typical Piss Christ crowd. From the Zero:
And so it is on June 8, cyclists in various stages of undress will meet at the museum. They’ll get a special deal to see “Cyclepedia” from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., when the ride begins: The price of admission to the show is $1 per item of clothing. That means no clothes — no charge.
As [naked bike ride leader Meghan] Sinnott says, the museum folks “get it.” As [Beth] Heinrich says, “The human body is art.”
Sorry Beth, YOU don’t get it.
Perhaps watching this video will help illustrate the pervert factor you’re inviting into your establishment. Please note their pedaling past what appears to be a school. Oh, yes, it’s a weekend. I’m SURE there are NO children living in that neighborhood (eyeroll),
See here where the City of Portland co hosted events with the naked men and tout it as “for all ages.”
The problem with the Naked Bike Ride in Portland–besides getting a police escort and closing streets for people who are respectable–is the riders start during the day in front of kids, parents and oldsters. It’s shock value for shock value’s sake. It makes Portland a more perverted place to live. Please see my posts here, here, here and here.
