Erotic Art Show tonight

By weeklyvolcano on February 10, 2007

Kulturelaberotic Showing skin. The birthday suit. Buck nekkid. Au naturel. It all might make for good art, but it also matters what you call it. Naked and nude, for instance, derive from different roots - the German nakt and the French nu, respectively. The first suggests an embarrassing or dirty lack of clothing; the second signifies the intentional bare all pose. One is lewd, the other noble. If it still sounds like splitting hairs, head to the Kulture Lab tonight, and decide what is lewd or noble at the Valentine Erotic Art Show. Besides 30 artists hanging, the Dead Artists host burlesque, a lingerie fashion show, erotic edible art, lounge music, and, oh hell, nudity, people, nudity. - Suzy Stump
