“‘All Bodies Are Works of Art'” said the banner at the front of the modest, three-block march some 100 fully naked, fully painted people embarked, walking from Dag Hammarskjold Plaza to an NYPD holding pen (thanks, Obama!) across from the United Nations.The occasion was NYC Bodypainting Day 2015, organized by Andy Golub and Young Naturists America, and, after spending a couple of hours watching dozens of artists do incredible things to these gloriously nude ‘canvases,’ who, as a whole, boasted an extraordinary range of body types, I’d have to say the banner is correct.” The second NYC Bodypainting Day featured 75 artists, 100 nude models and hundreds of spectators.

The second annual NYC Bodypainting Day at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, organized by Andy Golub with the coordination of Young Naturists America, included 100 nude models serving as canvases and 75 painters practicing their craft before the public. An early morning shower cleared out and the sun warmed the Plaza through the remainder of the day.
For four hours, Golub and other artists painted messages and images based on a theme of social-change, “What the World Needs Now…” Then participants marched to the United Nations around the corner. Peace and pluralism were frequent messages but an even more apparent agenda was that of acceptance. A banner that read “All Bodies are Works of Art” led of the procession. Beneath the paint, a diverse range of individuals were transformed into a living artistic statement.
