I t's 7: 1 0 on Friday night, and I have just entered the Fine Arts Center at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, to model . While waiting for the elevator to take me to the fourth-floor studios, I look at a poster pinned to the wall . Underneath an illustration of a man dangling from a gallows it reads:

Don't hang around on Friday nights ! Come to Friday night drawing. Live models are provided, two, in fact - and in the flesh . . . One doing a series of passionate short poses and the other appearing dead in the long pose . . . From 7:30 until 10 :00 pm. Open to the public.
