Artist organizing mass photo shoot of 100 nude women during Cleveland Republican National Convention

An artist known for his large-scale nude photo shoots is planning to make a splashy return to Cleveland at this summer’s Republican National Convention.

Spencer Tunick, of New York, is looking for 100 women to pose nude while holding mirrors in Cleveland at sunrise on July 17, the week of the GOP convention. Those who are interested can sign up by submitting a photo at his website, (An unsurprising heads-up: the website includes graphic, but artistic, images of nude people.)

Tunick told Cleveland Scene, which broke the news of the project, that he plans to hold the photo shoot on private property, in part so he doesn’t have to deal with police and the “hassle of permits.” A handful of groups already have applied for permits to demonstrate during the GOP convention, and more are expected.

Tunick’s last Cleveland project was in 2004, when he photographed 2,754 people on East 9th Street near the lakefront on a chilly, 57-degree Saturday. He also took smaller, gender-segregated shots at the William G. Mather Museum and the lawn in Voinovich Park.

The photo of the full crowd was unveiled later that summer at the Museum of Contemporary Art in University Circle.

    Keep it up you freaks….the muslim men get to gwack at you for free….and we see exactly how degrading you are to yourselves, your demonrat party, the city, the nation, and the world. Women as w…h…o…r…e…s and the men who treat them that way.

    in the meantime, anyone with an ounce of dignity, morality, respect will definitely vote Republican and reject the trash….literally, trash.

    Hillary never would look naked as great as Melinda Trump, not even when she were 18. But what the country needs naked is Hillary’s corruption. Not her.


    I certainly hope that the FIRST GORILLA IN THE WHITE HOUSE NOW make application & is accepted so that we can finally find out if the FIRST GORILLA is female or male. Personally I believe it’s a male.

    Is this so they can identify which is the correct bathroom?

      lol. That truly is funny.

  • Edgardo L. Perez-De Leon

    Tunnic should do the nude art to epitomize the nakedness needed on Hillary corruption. The correct date is at the Democratic convention. I will be there as a Bernie delegate.

      I don’t know if the country is ready for a nudie pic of Hillary. We have so many other burdens to ‘bare.’

  • roboteq

    I identify as a woman, so I want to be one of the 100 nude people for this.
