June 21, 2004

Dear Participants:

It's here! Hope you are ready for a great morning. Get a good night's
sleep,
stay up all night, no matter what you do, just be there!

This is the final e-mail correspondence you will receive from MOCA
prior to
the Spencer Tunick installation. Please read the entire e-mail and
print out
the model release form. The Spencer Tunick installation will take place
on
Saturday, June 26, 2004 at East 9th Street Pier (where East 9th Street
dead
ends at the lake - just a block from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame).
Please
keep this information as confidential as possible. Participants only!

You will only be nude for a short period of time during the actual
installation. The event will be finished by approximately 8:30am. While
posing do not wear any clothing. No hats, no sunglasses, no jewelry, no
socks. Completely nude. Please do not undress until directed to do so
by the
artist. There are no cameras allowed. No food or drink. Please no
handing
out of flyers. Leave your valuables at home or in your car; bring
friends
and family to participate.

Only participants will be allowed in the vicinity of the art event.
Unfortunately, spouses, friends or significant others who are not
posing
will not be allowed near or on the site. Only come to the art event
with
people who are posing.

What time should you be there?
You should arrive no later than 4:20am. Rain or shine!
(In order to facilitate better crowd control and ease of check-in we
are
staggering call times - so if you know someone else who is posing they
might
have a call time of 4:30am)

We encourage you to carpool, and if you are planning on coming with
friends
- the earliest call time among your group is when you all should
arrive.

Bring a light jacket. It is a little chilly right on the lake in the
early
morning.

Please be on time in order to insure your inclusion in this art event.

Other important information
Please fill out and bring with you the model release form attached to
this
e-mail. This is your ticket to get into the public art event - bringing
a
completed copy with you will get you into the event quicker and insure
your
participation. Only one name per release form. We will have extra
releases
at the meeting location in case you misplace yours or are unable to
print it
out, but it is better to come prepared. And most importantly, MOCA
Cleveland will use this information to contact you concerning your
print of
the event within approximately the next 4 months.

Spencer will be doing a few set-ups. Please refrain from talking and
shouting while walking into these positions and while Spencer is
documenting
the installation. It is very important to pay close attention to the
artist
and his assistants' instructions during this time. Please remember that
we
gather here for Spencer to make a piece of art and not to have a rally,
a
protest or a party. It is vital that participants move according to the
instructions given via megaphones. If you cannot hear the instructions,
for
any reason, please follow what the crowd in front of you is doing.
Please
also be patient in between set-ups while Spencer moves his crew and
assistants into position.

Directions and parking:
We have arranged for several parking lots to be open, however we
encourage
you to carpool - as the number of slots is limited.
East 9th Street and Marginal Road Lot: $10
Burke Lakefront Airport Lot: $6
Both these lots are located on Marginal Road (take East 9th Street over
the
highway, Marginal is the first light after the highway). Turn right
from
East 9th Street onto Marginal. On the right will be the $10 lot, a
little
further down the road on the left is the $6 lot.

These are the closest lots and will have an attendant - they will,
however,
involve the most traffic and waiting (especially when you are ready to
leave).

There is also a 24th hour lot, the Key Marriot Memorial Plaza Garage
(located at St. Clair and East 6th Street) - and ample street parking
in the
downtown Cleveland area.

Take I-71 North to I-90 East to Route 2 West/Exit 174B. Turn right onto
East

In exchange for posing you will receive a print of the event (taken by

Cleveland image, which will take place at MOCA on Friday, August 6,
2004.

Don't forget to bring $15 for a limited edition commemorative t-shirt -

his
work without you, and he is extremely grateful for your participation.

See you on June 26th!

Sincerely,

Amy Gilman
Curatorial Consultant
