Pair arrested for nude 'art project' mall shoot
They were surrounded by large crowds and "multiple small children".

A photographer and a model have been arrested after an indecent art shoot at a mall in the US on Saturday (local time).

Police say they received complaints about a naked woman around the parking lot, dressed only in thigh-high black stockings and high heel shoes.

When they arrived, police found the woman and a photographer surrounded by large crowds and "multiple small children with their families on the sidewalks".

The nude model, 21-year-old Chelsea Guerra, was arrested along with the photographer, 64-year-old Michael Warnock.

Police say Guerra told them "she is a nude model and responded to a Craigslist advertisement by Warnock seeking a nude model to photograph".

"It was an art project," Warnock told Pittsburgh's Action News 4.

Guerra was charged with indecent exposure.

Warnock was charged with criminal solicitation, criminal conspiracy, disorderly conduct and possession of controlled substances.
