Health warnings halt communal nude baths

NEW YORK (AP) -- Naked art lovers are no longer able to take dips together in a bathtub-like installation at a New York City museum after warnings from health officials.

The New Museum's "Psycho Tank" is part of the interactive exhibit "Experience" by German artist Carsten Holler. The pool sits off the ground in a tentlike structure. Visitors are handed bathrobes, slippers and towels before heading into the salty, warm water -- nude.

The New York Post reports health officials said allowing more than one person would have required a permit the museum didn't have.
