Big news: We have just launched the Kickstarter campaign for Bodypainting Day 2016!
There are two Bodypainting Day events scheduled for this summer. The first will take place on Saturday, July 9 in NYC and then it’s happening again in Amsterdam on Saturday, August 20.
We are planning to have 100 artists paint 100 nude models in NYC this year. In Amsterdam the goal is to double it in size from last year with 50 artists and 50 models.
Bodypainting Day remains a public art event that’s all about body acceptance and human connection through art. As always we plan to have models of all shapes and sizes, ages, races, sexual orientations and genders.
The theme for this year is “Inner Beauty.” Artists and body painters will connect with, and draw inspiration from, their models to create their original works of art.
As in previous years, the events will take place outdoors in public spaces where anyone can go and see the live body painting in person.
In Amsterdam, artists and models will take a canal boat ride through the city once the painting is done.
In New York, we will continue the tradition of the double decker bus rides through the public streets to share the art and spread the message of body love!
Last year, we raised over $10,000 on Kickstarter to fund these events. Our fundraising goal for 2016 is $15,000.
There are all kinds of great rewards for our backers including a one-of-a-kind magnet, digital art prints, t-shirts and more.
This Kickstarter campaign is only 25 days long. So don’t wait – donate now and help us make Bodypainting Day 2016 a reality!!!
