The Last Clothing Optional Nude Art Contest in San Francisco!!??


San Francisco City Hall

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Noon

Protest over proposed SF anti-nudity legislation + nude art contest + free after-party

All events are clothing-optional or "as bare as you dare"


District 8 Supervisor, Scott Wiener has submitted anti-nudity legislation before the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. This legislation would ban public nudity all over San Francisco. This legislation affects everyone’s freedom. Remember: as an artist working in nude themes, 100 years ago you would have had to put fig leaves on the “naughty bits.” That type of thinking is coming back unless you resist. . . . This art show came as an extension of planning this October 30 protest.

We came up with an idea that it would be great to bring classical nude paintings to the protest to remind the Supervisors that human body is sacred and beautiful, and that an attack on our right to be nude is an attack on sacredness, beauty, love, freedom, art and creative self-expression. Along with the classical art we would be most honored to see some of our very own local nude art by our local artists so we can all enjoy their art together and also to show that nudity in art is just as vibrantly alive now as it was in the times of the classic masters. In our nude art contest the jury will be anyone in the protest and anyone present at the scene. Any medium of art is welcome as long as it is easily portable and as long as it doesn't block pedestrian flow. If you have a nude art piece please bring it to the art contest (sending representative to show your artwork is OK). If you know someone else who does nude art, please let them know!

We will tally the votes after the protest and announce the winners at an after-party (all invited), 7pm, at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission, between 9th and 10th St. Ecstatic Dance DJ, snacks, and good company featured at the free after-party. Please bring your art work to the after-party as well.
