Have you ever thought about the cat houses / brothels in Nevada. The ladies that work at them or the art that is on the walls?
There is a group of nationally renowned artists that are setting up a show about this very thing.
It is in the preproduction stages of a short film that profiles some of these ladies as models for paintings, photographs and sculpture. (The art will travel with the show)
The show From innocence to Venus is set for an opening in June of 2007 in Reno, Nevada and is already picking up quite a bit of interest.
I've even heard talk about several big news shows and daytime TV shows wanting to do a segment about it.
For those of you who would like to see it but can't find the time to make it to Reno / Lake Tahoe it is scheduled to travel to Los Angles, Las Vegas, Chicago, and New York so keep your eyes peeled for when it will show up in your area.
I'll post here again when I find out more of the details.
