Well-Hung Art

At a Vienna gallery showing a special exhibition of male nudes, art fans were invited to attend in the nude themselves.
These museum goers didn't just leave their outerwear at the coat check. They handed over their shirts, trousers, underwear - everything, except their shoes and socks. The occasion at Vienna's Leopold Museum was a special after-hour showing of "Nude Men from 1800 to Today" - an exhibit of 300 paintings, photographs, drawings and sculptures focused on the bare male.  For many, the evening was a goose-bump raising instance of life imitating art. "I can't say I'm sweating," said office worker Herbert Korvas, as he stood in the atrium with other young men wearing no more than socks and a smile and waiting for the tour to start.
