For 25 years now, the New York Academy of Art has faced the not too difficult task of imploring New Yorkers to take home a nude, buying up the cream of the art world crop’s fleshiest imaginations and benefitting the institution all the while. Patrick Demarchelier, Nan Goldin, and Marina Abramovic are just some of this year’s dozens of contributors, and while the online auction ends tomorrow, there’ll be time for in-person appreciation on Monday night at an event honoring Academy cofounder Andy Warhol’s former muse, Jane Holzer.
