"Expose yourself to art" From Monet to Kandinsky - Flashing an artwork in 1978


If you don’t already know “Expose yourself to art” is a well-known poser which was made from a photo. The photo was taken in 1978 and featured Bud Clark apparently flashing a female statue.

Kvinneakt

The artwork is called Kvinneakt (author Norman J. Taylor) and the sculpture is representing a nude woman made out of bronze.

The photo was originally intended to help create a poster for Veneral Disease Action Conseil.

But the surprise comes when a reader-submitted the caption “expose yourself to art”.

With $50, Ryerson printed poster, then sold 800 of them for one dollar each.

By 1984, the year Clark was elected mayor, Ryerson has sold more than 250.000 posters with profits supporting The Northwest Neighbor.
