Nude Nite, the largest nude art show in the U.S., opens its doors Valentine’s weekend for its annual exhibition of art and entertainment. Nude Nite exhibits over 200 original works in a 20,000 SF pop-up gallery setting allowing thousands of art enthusiasts to view and purchase artist’s works. The juried show has gained a national reputation for giving the nude a confident standing in the art world and it has long been recognized as Orlando’s most anticipated art event.
The 2013 show transforms an industrial warehouse into its signature gallery taking inspiration from Mother Earth herself. “The body is universal, regardless of its shape, size or color,” director Kelly Stevens says. “We are too judgmental of our bodies. It feels good to compliment and appreciate ourselves just as we were created to be.” Guests will experience a rainbow of colors cast upon a canopy of white transparent umbrellas giving a rain forest-like effect. Projection artists will create a 20 foot high video sculpture inspired by global views of the figure. Guests can expect a diverse group of Installation artists which include Japanese artist Miyuki, making edible sexy candy figures in the Etamazu style, and Melbourne performance artist Danielle Horak who will exhibit her interactive kissing booth as well as other surprises. In anticipation of its opening, Nude Nite has introduced 8 videos on You Tube and Nude Nite’s Facebook page of individuals, artists and performers touched by the acceptance they feel by attending the show.
Nude Nite will host its first male “boylesque” performer from Chicago’s The Stage Door Johnnies. Ray Gunn WILL take it off for the ladies (and men). Guest can expect Nude Nite’ssaucy burlesque shows at the “top” of every hour beginning at 9pm, 10pm and 11pm and stage performer, Perego will showcase his mind blowing rock ‘n roll art performance at 8pm. In addition, expect to be entertained by world class body painters, aerialists, fitness pole dancers and the unusual cast of strolling characters around every corner.

Church St. (Corner of Church and Parramore) and in Tampa March 7, 8, and 9 at 3606 E. 4th Ave. Tampa, FL 33605 (Ybor) from 6pm – midnight. Must be 21 to attend. Valet and self parking available.
