The Art MA show (X-Rated Art)
Depiction of the human form has been part of art as long as there have been artists. The power, beauty, vulnerability, and sometimes humor of nudity has a universal appeal, because deep down we have that much in common. But today, there are few venues for local artists to share works that are of a more intimate or graphic nature. “The X-rate show” seeks to provide such an opportunity to a diverse group of local artists to share with the general public their celebration of the human body. This exhibit will feature X-Rated, Sexual, and Lowbrow Art for Mature Audience ONLY! Hosting artists include Phil Strang, Cindy Blair Sampson, Marc-Anthony Macon, Ralph Roether, and Laura Anne Welle. All of these artists have participated in 40North events and most have been Ace Award nominees at some time.
Friday Feb 15 6pm to 10 pm, and Saturday noon to 10pm, at 123 W. Main St. in downtown Urbana next to Blackbird. For more information visit us on Facebook or phone Phil at 217-649-4565
