  § 245.01 Exposure of a person.
    A person is guilty of exposure if he appears in a public place in such
  a manner that the private or intimate parts of his body are unclothed or
  exposed.  For purposes of this section, the private or intimate parts of
  a female person shall include that portion of the breast which is  below
  the top of the areola. This section shall not apply to the breastfeeding
  of  infants  or  to  any  person  entertaining  or performing in a play,
  exhibition, show or entertainment.
    Exposure of a person is a violation.
    Nothing in this section shall prevent the adoption by a city, town  or
  village  of  a  local  law  prohibiting  exposure  of a person as herein
  defined in a public place, at any time, whether or not  such  person  is
  entertaining or performing in a play, exhibition, show or entertainment.
