This Valentine's Day, say it with nudes. Give someone the surprising, unusual gift of going on a hunt for nudity in art at the Museum of Fine Arts. You'll scrutinize such things as randy Romans, a "stag" party drinking game, Gauguin's island girls, sufferin' Sabines (as Sylvester might say), Father Time's hot time, and a god with Venus envy. But if you'd rather not present Cupid with a target, no worries: this hunt is open to curious connoisseurs and curmudgeons as well. No knowledge of art, or nudity, is required. Rated PG-13. Price, which includes museum admission: Feb. 10, $28 per person; Feb. 14, $23 per person. Advance purchase required.
