Amanda Palmer As The Nude Patron Saint Of Children’s Literacy

by on August 28, 2015


Amanda Palmer strikes again.

   The indefatigable avante garde whirlwind refuses to let her pregnancy slow down her art.

   At eight months pregnant, the artist, musician, modern philosopher and ultimate Renaissance woman-of-the-future stripped down, painted up, and stood nude in front of the New York Public Library for the day as a living recreation of sculptor Damien Hirst’s ‘Verity.’

   The library’s new patron saint for children’s literacy, Palmer accrued an ever-growing pile of book donations at her feet and much-lauded publicity for the library’s children’s book drive before being escorted off stage at the end of the performance piece by her literary hubby Neil Gaiman.
