The Lexington Art League is excited to bring back The Nude - one of the most anticipated exhibitions in Lexington for nearly 30 years. This exhibition showcases contemporary nude figurative art by Kentucky artists.

Join us on Friday, November 19, from 5-8 for the The Nude Biennial Opening and the last LexArts HOP of 2021!

As a special addition to the event, we welcome speaker, scholar, and storyteller Dr. Aminanta Cairo, who will be presenting her work "Holding Space: A Storytelling Approach to Trampling Diversity and Inclusion" at 6 PM.
