As a proud Jewish grandmother, NAOMI WILZIG may seem an unlikely figurehead for a museum of erotic art, but it's her welcoming face on taxi cab ads that invites visitors to WEAM, the World Erotic Art Museum, with its collection of over 4,000 pieces - and counting. This Sunday on the Mosaic of Art, "Miss Naomi" will "reveal all" about how her passion for collecting came about. She'll also present her collecting criteria (artists' submissions are welcome), WEAM's mission and challenges - and she'll speak about a few faves from the collection. In this "teaser," a Five Minute Takeout on the MOA you'll learn her ultimate arousal factor - not what you think! Next, Naomi introduces artist ROSEMARIE ROMERO and compares her own political stances regarding to those of her guest, whose war protest campaign takes the form of photomontages that juxtapose fashion, sex ads and military images. Rosemarie describes her methods, goals and motivations. DAVID TAMARGO, assistant art director at WEAM, gives the "back stories" of several pieces, including Herman Makkink's notorious rocking sculpture from Stanley Kubrick's Clockwork Orange, Dieter Sporleder's Kama Sutra bed and Wally Wood's playful take on the Disney pantheon.
