Living Art: Texas Man Arrested After Parading Naked Above Billboard

James Apple, 24, has a different idea of how to expose himself to art. The Fort Worth man climbed up a billboard for the Museum of Living Art and walked around naked — slowing traffic for nearly five hours.

After hours of trying to coax Apple off the billboard, the police came up with the brilliant idea of telling him that they expected rain. He then came down and was put under psychiatric observation.

It would seem that the living display worked on many levels or sides. The other side had a “We Buy Ugly Houses” advertisement.

To their credit, the police showed admirable restraint in not doing a William Tell with Mr. Apple. In New York, they appear to taser naked man on ledges, here.
