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 “Psycho Tank” is part of an interactive exhibit “Experience” by German artist Carsten Holler (HOO’-lehr). The pool sits off the ground in a tent-like structure. Visitors are handed bathrobes, slippers and towels before heading into the salty, warm water — nude. The New York Post (http://nyp.st/tBrHNo ) reports health officials said allowing more than one person would have required a permit the museum didn’t have. The museum is now allowing only one person in at a time. Officials are also investigating whether other parts of the exhibit, which include a giant slide and a carousel, meet city regulations.
