–NAUGHTI GRAS 7–
Koken Art Factory is proud to present a two day, two building erotic experience! For the second year Koken will be featuring two buildings to encompass the wonder that is Naughti Gras (2500 Ohio and 2655 Victor). Our Victor building will be encased in art, feature talented stage performances, musical entertainment, an erotic market, food options, a full bar, as well as some new exciting additions. Our 2500 Ohio location will be turned into a glorious erotic playground where your desires can come out to play. Walk through themed rooms and enjoy interactive characters, ambient performances, live art, and detailed spaces that will arouse your imagination.
Naughti Gras 7 will be a sultry delight for the senses. Take in an array of hand picked erotic art in all mediums and styles created by talented local artists. In years past hundreds of original artwork has been featured in each show. Patrons can enjoy fantastic entertainment and performances each night at Naughti Gras7…but if you want to take your evening to the next level you must immerse yourself in the Tropic of Cancer Experience. What is the Tropic of Cancer you ask?
Tropic of Cancer is a novel by Henry Miller which has been described as “notorious for its candid sexuality” and as responsible for the “free speech that we now take for granted in literature.” It was first published in 1934 by the Obelisk Press in Paris, France, but this edition was banned in the United States. Its publication in 1961 in the U.S. by Grove Press led to obscenity trials that tested American laws on pornography in the early 1960s. In 1964, the U.S. Supreme Court declared the book non-obscene. It is widely regarded as an important masterpiece of 20th century literature.
The Koken Art Factory will again be offering gallery hours for those that would like to view the art after the opening weekend.No fee will be charged and the bar will be open for business.
There will be a Private Artist and VIP Reception on February 20th. Yes, we said VIP. We are always working on ways to make you feel extra special during your Naughti Gras experience each year! This is a great way to view the art with smaller crowds and network with NG7 artists.
General admission to the event gets you admittance into 2655 Victor which includes the art show, entertainment on the main stage, the erotic market, a photo booth, food options, a full bar, and some new surprises to spice things up.
The Tropic of Cancer Experience gets you admittance into the Naughti Gras 7 Art Show at 2655 Victor and the Tropic of Cancer at 2500 Ohio. You get the best of both worlds here and can browse each building as you please.
