Spencer Tunick - The Naked Truth

Featured Audio

The once-in-a-lifetime occasion featured smiles that stretched through the street, from giddy, sleep-deprived volunteers who joined in, for the largest North American installation ever by artist Spencer Tunick.

The daring folks over at MOCA Cleveland arranged the art event, and were generous enough to open the installation to our bashful ideastream producer, Dave DeOreo, as he (fully-clothed) followed two local writers through their extraordinary day. Husband and wife playwrights - David Hansen and Toni K. Thayer - took the day to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary, as they took off all their attire - all in the name of art. So, you’ve seen the pictures, and the video, now give a listen as we take you on an audio journey with Dave, Toni, and Spencer Tunick.
