Our opening night for OBJECTIFY THIS: Female Anatomy Dissected and Displayed was a huge success! The doors opened at 6pm and the Design Cloud Gallery quickly packed with people that stayed well into the night to experience the incredible art, watch the anatomically themed Vaudezilla burlesque performances, eat the anatomical heart cakes by Conjurer’s Kitchen, and chat with the artists in attendance, Emily Evans and Danny Quirk.  I’m overwhelmed with all the positive responses by the people who attended!
