The Nude in Art in the 21st Century

I'm sure you've come across at least one of artist Spencer Tunick's photographs of mass gatherings of nude people in major public places around the world. His latest effort brought together over 5,000 in front of the Sydney Opera House in Australia. I'd have to say that plenty of ancient and grand master nudes in art possessed far more eroticism than this! But, then again, that seems to be Tunick's point. And if you read the comments of participants in this article (which has more pictures), not only will that be reinforced, but you'll learn about what the experience of doing so is like--just in case you're thinking about volunteering for his next sitting!
Help me out, here, now...where in Orange County would be the ideal spot for him to pose thousands in the buff?
