The National Pastime Theater, Chicago's premier theatrical provocateurs, presents their 2nd annual fine arts festival Naked July: Art Stripped Down. At The National Pastime Theater the entire month of July will be filled with lovely, provoking and aggressive bodies. NPT's festival aims to reveal the human body as beautiful in every shape, size and color (including Technicolor). By exposing these physical differences, audiences discover the innate similarities in all human bodies - we are all made of the same material both natural and beautiful. Throughout the festival, the theater transforms its lobby into an art gallery. On display are works from local Chicago artists that focus on the idea of naked, be it literal or figurative. Weekly private auctions are open to the general public.
