Model Kathleen "K.C." Neill faces a charge of public lewdness. Defense attorney Donald Schechter says the museum is full of nude art, and to call what the model and her photographer were doing obscenity "is ridiculous."
Photographer Zach Hyman directed the shoot. He's been getting some attention locally for photographing nude models on subways. Hyman has said he's inspired by nude paintings at the Met and his photos are not pornographic.
