Marni Kotak has created a cozy environment for the birth of her first child -- inside a New York City art gallery.

The 36-year-old Kotak is a performance artist who has set up a home-birth center at the Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn. She's turned the space into a brightly decorated bedroom with ocean blue walls and photo-imprinted pillows.

She plans to deliver the baby there as a work of art sometime in the next few weeks.

Leading up to the performance, called "The Birth of Baby X," visitors can spend time talking to Kotak about motherhood, art and other issues.

Kotak hopes people will see that giving birth is what she calls "the highest form of art."
