Body Equality Live Painting

Location: Parlor Downtown

Time: 2-4 PM  (during Festival International de Louisiane)

Living Arts Installation by Nicole Touchet of Galerie Touchet. 

I have envisioned a living, breathing arts installation that can move freely throughout the festival by the vehicle of the human body... I invite any person wishing to support the cause - offer your body as a canvas for an afternoon of defiance against the societal norms of covering your breasts in public. I will be reintroducing the female body to the community as an organic vessel, beautifully rendered in paint. I wish to desensitized the negative perception female breasts have in society. Society is allowed to put a price tag on our bodies, while we aren't even allowed to 'have' them for ourselves. Our bodies are simply NUDE NOT PORNOGRAPHIC. FREE THE NIPPLE. SUPPORT THE ARTS. 

Thank you, Nicole Touchet
