: 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

: friends
: and family to participate.

: Only participants will be allowed in the vicinity of the art event.

: 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

: Other important information
: Please fill out and bring with you the model release form attached to

: 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.

: 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
