NEW YORK -- A New York City performance artist must wait until sundown before he can slather fully nude models in paint.
A Manhattan judge on Thursday said public lewdness charges against Andy Golub will be dismissed, with certain conditions.
His models can still go topless at any hour - that's legal in New York City.
But they'll have to keep their G-strings on until dusk and he can't be rearrested within six months.
City attorney Gabriel Taussig told the New York Post that it's a question of protecting minors from the nudity.
The artist was charged in July after having two models take off all their clothes.
Golub told the Daily News he planned to seek a court order to allow him to resume daylight nude art.
