As painters and photographers from 44 countries gather in Austria next month for World Bodypainting Festival, Zoe West, a New York nude model who posed in body painting for artist Andy Golub at Times Square files a legal suit against the city.

West, 22, posed at West 44th Street on Aug. 30, 2011. An hour later, some cops arrived and moved the multicolored human body (canvas) of West into a set of handcuffs, and out in a police van.
Without charges, she was released about two hours later.
