Is Stripping An Art?

What do they say in real estate? Location is everything? So I suppose stripping is an art if you do it in a dank hipster place on the LES or in a swank red-velvet-rope exclusive nightclub for celebutards. For that matter it is art if you do it in Deitch Gallery – or anywhere else art-y.

But in Iowa… well…. Iowa doesn’t have any all-nude strip clubs — but it does have performing arts centers where women dance naked. That, however, may soon change. Here’s the article in the NY Daily News.

And here‘s the “art center” in question.

I may not be able to define it, but I know it when I see it. And that ain’t art. And if that isn’t art, would it be art if it were an entirely made-up website created to perfectly simulate a website for an Iowa strip club/cathouse? The mind reels.
