WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — How do you feel about nude artwork in public?
This weekend an art show in Wilmington aims to start a conversation about what is acceptable and how to take the stigma out of it.
“Full Frontal” is a showcase featuring the human body in all sizes, shapes, media and interpretation. It features several artists and their interpretation of the nude form.
Organizers say there will also be thought-provoking installations, live performance art and a figure drawing class with live models.
For curator Kristen Crouch it’s about more than just the art.
“‘Full frontal’ is all about the celebration of the nude figure through many different interpretations; mixed media, we’re gonna have performance art, visual art,” Crouch said. “It’s just meant to express in many different forms the naked human body and put it into context of what it means in a conservative South and our world as a whole.”
The “Full Frontal” opening night reception is tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Wabi Sabi Warehouse at 19 N. 9th Street in Wilmington. The exhibition runs through July 31.
