Nude Nite fans can expect the popular cast of characters including body painting vignettes from world class body painters, theatrical strolling performers and living sculptures. Nude Nite is not just about art on the wall, but the show is stepping up the entertainment with burlesque performances at the top of every hour, starting at 9pm. Miss Polly Wood is flying her tassels in from burlesque capital, Seattle to tease attendees in addition to local favorite Blue Star and her troupe. Attendees will be sure to read every word of Atlanta artist Darren Saravis’ Body Text Project, a photography installation projecting political manifestos such as MLK’s famous speech, the 5th Amendment and more projected on gorgeous bodies.Valentines can break from the art to share a Perrier-Jouet champagne toast served by human painted flowers or wind through the green Lucid Labyrinth to experience a now legal absinthe cocktail served by painted green fairies. Attendees will have more time to buy and view art without the later night crowds. Early browsers can enjoy Naked Sushi, an art exhibit and tasting exclusively each nite from 6-8 p.m., hosted by artist Michael Leoncio. Area sushi chefs will prepare and serve specialties on the most human of displays. Sushi and wine tasting available for $5.
