they don't know much about art but they know what they like

Looking at naked ladies...can it be art or is it just perving? In Boise, Idaho, it's definitely perving and you can't do it; meanwhile, over in Berlin it's obviously perving, but it's art too, and you can do it so long as you queue nicely:

Organisers of a performance art show in Germany featuring 100 naked women had to call in police reinforcements to control a long and impatient queue of people, police said.
Scuffles broke out late last Friday as people tried to jump over the barriers to get closer to the women, aged between 18 and 65, wearing see-through stockings and greased with baby oil, who arranged themselves according to the instructions of US artist Vanessa Beecroft.

I'm thinking...maybe I should grease up my model, arrange him in a nice pose and sell tickets to passing backpackers from Berlin and Boise...
