Nelli’s Last Supper inspires questions | The Florentine

LABSN Editor’s Note: In honor of National Women’s Month I’m posting this very interesting piece about a 14th century woman artist. Women artists in general do not receive the accolades they deserve, and early women artists are all but unknown outside of the art academia community. I hope you enjoy this article, and notice at the end there is a link to a crowd-funding effort to restore this masterpiece. If you can, help out.

Bodypainting Day 2016

LANSN Editor’s Note: This looks like a fun event for all involved. What a great way to introduce the public to the beauty of the nude body.

IMG_0928While most days you’d get arrested if you walked fully nude down the sidewalk at 47th Street and Second Avenue in New York City — topless is fine, for all genders; bottomless is not, for any — there is an exception.

Bodypainting Day.

Once a year, for the past three, Andy Golub has organized a mass bodypainting festival, gathering a hundred models of all sizes, shapes, ages, races, and genders to pose fully nude in the street and act as human canvases for dozens of talented artists flown in from all over the country and all over the world.
