This is art?

I guess art is in the eye of the beholder.

NYC museum limits visitors in bathtub-like artwork
Associated Press -

NEW YORK (AP) — Naked art lovers are no longer able to take dips together in a bathtub-like installation at a New York City museum after warnings from health officials.

The "Psycho Tank" is part of an interactive exhibit "Experience" by German artist Carsten Holler (HOO'-lehr). The pool sits off the ground in a tent-like structure. Visitors are handed bathrobes, slippers and towels before heading into the salty, warm water — nude.

The New York Post reports health officials said allowing more than one person would have required a permit the museum didn't have.
