Model Zoe West Undeterred By False Arrest: Will Continue To Perform

By Robert Paul Reyes

Last year model Zoe West was arrested when she was having her nude body painted at Times Square by renowned artist Andy Golub.

We don`t expect a beat cop to be a constitutional expert, but we do expect him to be familiar with the laws he is paid by taxpayers to enforce.


In the state of New York it`s not illegal to be naked in public as long as you are participating in a play, exhibition or performance.

Zoe is a fighter, not only is she suing New York City for false arrest, but she plans on continuing to perform.

What: Full Nude Bodypainting in Times Square

When: Thursday, June 21 from 7:00-9:00PM

Where: 44th Street & Broadway (Southeast corner) NYC

If you live in New York, and you want to support artistic expression be there or be square. I hope that thousands of lovers of freedom of speech and the supremacy of art will be at Times Square tomorrow.
