Art of the Body opens with a reception on First Friday at the AAGD, June 7, 5–8pm
A visual exploration of the uniquely human desire to adorn and decorate ourselves.
Humans have expressed their identity, social status, and sexual desirability through self-adornment for thousands of years. Through tattoos, piercings, scarification, make up and hair styling we continue to express our individuality.
The Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania is using this show at its’ Downtown Gallery to showcase several local tattoo and piercing artists and by doing so, actively encourage the community to become involved in diverse art experiences and expand the boundaries of what is traditionally thought of as art.
Art of the Body runs from June 7th-30th. The First Friday opening reception is on the 7th from 5–8 pm. We invite the community to come and meet the artists and join us on the Martin Luther King Plaza for entertainment by local dance groups.
