UNIFICATION: A 3 Day Flash Exhibit Over Gay Pride Weekend

JANSSEN ARTSPACE hosted a 3-day art event in conjunction with the Palm Springs Gay Pride Festival this past November. The exhibit featured local LGBT artists, but the highlight of the weekend was seeing artist ADAM ENRIQUE RODRIGUEZ perform his signature live nude body painting on an assortment of female and male models, giving his bold forms another dimension. Janssen Artspace is located on Tahquitz Canyon, one of the main streets used for the Gay Pride Parade. As gallery owner Steven Janssen explained, “At first we were going to perform the event inside the gallery, but it was such a fine day, we decided to take our nude body painting outside and people loved it. Thankfully the city didn’t shut us down.”
