Body painting show back in downtown Macon Friday night

Body painting is returning to Macon.

The Dark Eden art show, first held this past July, is coming to the SoChi Gallery on Second Street beginning at 9 p.m. Friday.

The show will include about 20 models for painting and another two dozen or so artists who will have their art works on display, said Daniel Montoute, the show's organizer.

"It's essentially going to be the same as last time," he said Thursday. "It'll be a lot larger this time, though."

In July, the first such show initially was canceled after reports that some models might be nude while they were being painted. Authorities told organizers, however, that there could not be nudity and alcohol together at a public event.

The night of the show, female models were dressed in sports bras and boy shorts -- akin to women's underpants or bikini bottoms. Male models wore underwear.

The cost of Friday night's show is $8 in advance, through the online ticketing site Eventbrite, and $12 at the door.
