EDIT: The founder of Nude Nite was Victor Perez, who moved away in 2002. The series was picked up by Stevens in 2005.

Nude Nite (Website), the infamous annual pop-up art experience celebrating the naked human body, is back this week after a three-year hiatus following the death of its founder most recent operator, Kelly Stevens.

Stevens, who created the event 18 years ago, passed away in August 2021, but her daughter, Sloan Waranch, has taken up the torch for at least one more go as a tribute to her mother. The theme of this year’s show, “Prism,” was inspired by an unpublished memoir that Stevens wrote prior to her passing.

“Prism is about embracing all of the parts of ourselves and allowing ourselves to shift the
way we think about the experiences that have shaped us. Like a Prism transforms white light into a rainbow, restarting Nude Nite has been a way for Sloan to transform her grief into something beautiful, like a rainbow.”


The event, which will run from 6 p.m.-midnight Thursday, February 9-Saturday, February 11, will take place at the Canvas Event Venue, located at 1401 Florida Mall Avenue [GMap]. It will feature artworks that are inspired by the nude human form as well as roaming actors (likely naked), burlesque dancers, body painting, interactive installations, and more.
