Oh, quit your giggling. For centuries, artists have centered their finest works on the sensual, natural beauty of the naked human form. And while yes, you can expect to see a barrage of tasseled ta-tas and stone-hard-etched pieces, the not-so-private parts on display at Nude Nite ­– styled after everything from Cirque-type harlequins to Vegas-style showgirls – and the artists who present them, do so for the sake of art. The three-day national juried art exhibition takes on a bazaar-like setup: Photography and paintings over here, installation works and sculptural pieces over there, with live body painting and interactive performance art bits speckled in between. DJ music, a cash bar and food available for purchase round out this adult evening (must be 21 to attend). And for your own sake, please remember: This art party might be on the erotic side, but don’t think for a second that very important “look, but don’t touch” rule won’t apply. – Aimee Vitek
