YNA and Andy Golub Launch Kickstarter For BodyPainting Day 2015!!!

(To donate click: Kickstarter campaign)

July 26th, 2014 was a day to remember. Thirty artists painted 40 naked models, who then marched through NYC, sharing the art and spreading a message of body acceptance. The models were all shapes, sizes, colors and genders. The event captured international attention and recognition. Thus marked the first ever NYC Body Painting Day.

For 2015, we are teaming up with Andy Golub to do it all again, only BIGGER and better! We want to have 50 artists and 100 models, which will include spontaneous members of the public. This would be double in size from last year.

NYC Bodypainting Day 2014

 

But in order to make it happen we need your help.

We have just launched a Kickstarter campaign with Andy to raise (at least) $10,000 to cover expenses for this year’s event. That’s the minimum goal, but the more money we raise, the more we can do! And with enough funds, Andy may even be able to bring Body Painting Day to the city of Amsterdam as well.

If you support Andy’s work, if you’ve ever witnessed and enjoyed his public art, if you believe in freedom of expression and body acceptance, please consider donating to this Kickstarter campaign. Help us expand and promote one of the greatest artistic, body-positive events NYC has ever seen.

Starting at donations of $20, rewards include limited edition prints, t-shirts and more. However, even if you can only afford to give $5 or $10, we appreciate your help.

You can also help us out by spreading the word! Share this post or the Kickstarter campaign page.

Thank you!
