Organized by NY artist, Andy Golub, the Second Annual NYC Bodypainting Day will involve more than 50 artists from around the country who will be painting 100 nude individuals.
The model volunteers include Lakisha aka Kiki, a plus-size model who participated in last year’s event as well as a 74 year-old actor, a sky diver, a woman with cerebral palsy and a breast cancer survivor.
This event takes body acceptance to the extreme. After the painting in the plaza, the models and artists will then march to the United Nations before boarding double decker buses that will showcase the “live art exhibition” around NYC. The public is invited to observe the painting process and participate in the march
