Nude Nite Orlando, More than Just Fine Art

The 200 pieces of fine art photographs, sculptures, and paintings are just a part of Nude Nite Orlando. “It’s made of painters, performers, acrobats, …” explains Director Kelly Stevens. “It’s about visual extravaganza. A feast if you will.”

Nude Nite is as much a happening as it is an art show.  Thousands of people attended the show during its three night run.  And if you came late you’d end up standing in line.  The attraction is for the performances as much as the art.  There are burlesque shows, acrobats performing on stage and on a large hoop suspended from the ceiling.  Roving models, live body painting demonstrations, and performance artists moving through the crowds.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras as long as they are respectful and understand the limits of what can be done with their photographs.  “If you think about the event from a photography standpoint it probably has two dozen of the most incredible visuals that I’d like photograph,” continues Stevens. “It’s a very inspiring event.  Full of color and texture, which is what I think photographers really like.”

The tag line, “Take a nude home tonight” is meant to encourage attendees to purchase art.  And when they do, they receive free tickets to Nude Nite for life.
