I was recently able to attend the “Naked Truth” Body Paint Runway Show which was a beautiful event celebrating black artists and the visual artist that sometimes get left behind. All the models were painted with the theme of Black Panther. There was also a fashion show with live music and food.
The vibe did not disappoint any of the people who came to view the event especially one showcasing how black people in Minnesota and around the world rally around one common theme. That to me is unity, self-reflection, and love, which always encompasses the visual artist and painter.
Pierre Douglas was the evenings host along with special guest Jacelyn P. Johnson, Agency Director at Model Talent Management (MTM), whose production company JahPenée Productions was in charge of producing choreography for the evening.
