Andy Golub seeks to bring Bodypainting Day to San Francisco and Brussels

Repost of Andy Golub’s call for support:

BRING BODYPAINTING DAY TO SAN FRANCISCO & BRUSSELS

Bodypainting Day continues to expand to more cities. This is no small feat. Bodypainting Day always includes fully nude models of all shapes and sizes getting painted in full public view. That makes it very difficult to get a permit. It’s also why the event has so much impact.

In a very inclusive way, we challenge the idea of body shame that affects us all. We show by example that all bodies are beautiful, and the power that art can have.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT HAPPEN

Please support these events through our Kickstarter campaign. These funds go directly into running the event, including supplies, signage, rentals, travel, press, and documentation.

EACH CITY HAS AN IMPORTANT STORY TO TELL

In 2014, San Francisco imposed a nudity ban, although it is still allowed for events. We need to demonstrate that public nudity for the sake of art or expression should never be illegal.

Brussels is the capital of the European Union and recently suffered a terrorist attack. It is especially important to celebrate and maintain the open culture of Brussels.

Thank you to George and Pierre for getting approval for Bodypainting Day in your cities. And thank your for your support to help make it a reality.
