Pregnant Artist Amanda Palmer's Amazing Body Art Book Drive at the New York Public Library

On August 20th, artist / musician / crowd-funder Amanda Palmer — currently 8 months pregnant — donned nothing but body paint on the steps of the New York Public Library to recreate an amazing statue and attract donations for a children’s book drive.

On August 20th, Amanda Palmer and a whole team of artists and body-painters got together to create…something. This film documents the entire day, filmed from 11 am until she stood on the pedestal of the 5th Ave Branch of the NYPL at 6:15 pm.

Read the accompanying story for tons of behind-the-scenes info on the project, including tons of excellent photos.
