If there’s still a taboo around erotic art in Las Vegas, rest assured: Dr. Laura Henkel is breaking it. The curator and specialist in human sexuality helms the Sin City Gallery. She also runs 12 Inches of Sin, an annual juried erotic art exhibition. Now, for the competition’s fifth year, an immersive art experience will accompany the annual competition.
My work will be amongst the 300 works of erotic art included in the evenings festivities.
For the April 9 event, Dr. Henkel is taking over the entire Arts Factory complex, the converted warehouse where Sin City Gallery is located, amongst other fine art studios and commercial galleries. She hopes to encourage Las Vegas’ downtown arts scene, and from 1 PM to midnight, the complex will be filled with visual and performance art, lectures, and live entertainment.
“Sin City Gallery is dedicated to providing a serious professional forum, exhibit space, and series of publications for practitioners of provocative art who have too long been marginalized or excluded from so much of the art world,” reads a press release for the event.
