Naked Burghers everywhere!

Okay, not only do we have the Pittsburgh Nude Project and, from now until mid August, you can go to the Headquarters Gallery on East Carson to view lots of naked Burghers in their “Industrially Nude” showing.

The show features images of many local Pittsburgher’s in different levels of undress — arguably one of the most vulnerable positions a person can be in. Yet each image emphasizes the determination of the individual to maintain self despite social mores.

Huh? That’s a lot of words to describe some naked people.

Why the sudden obsession with photos of naked Burghers in the name of art?

The only “level of undress” we should ever see most Burghers is the level of undress achieved by ripping off one’s shirt during a freezing cold Steelers game. Not that I’ve ever done that.

If one of those “local Pittsburghers” is Myron Cope or any of the Steigerwalds, I will vomit. I have no desire to see naked Burghers unless they are naked Steelers. Now THAT would be art worth seeing.

    On the subject of naked Pittsburgh sports heroes, I will never forget Sally Wiggin’s legendary episodes of stammering, sweating, getting all fidgetty, and generally squelching low-frequency orgasms after any locker room interview segment involving Paul Coffey.
