The Dirty Wrap-Up
I should add that dancing girls are at all the shows I participate in to my rider
Another adventure came and went with the opening weekend of the Dirty Show 12 on February 11th & 12th. I arrived late on a three degree fahrenheit evening to Detroit and stayed at a nice bed and breakfast for a few snowy days. I highly recommend The Inn on Ferry Street if you’re ever there. It’s made up of several historic Victorian homes built in the 1800s and each room is unique. Although I didn’t get to see much of the city, I was told I stayed in a nice part of town.
Getting back to the Dirty Show, it was a good mix of all types of artwork. It ran the gamut from fantastically good, very naughty, humorous, and maybe just a little bit wrong (in the conservative society kind of way). There was also a stage show with different types of burlesque, dance, and other performances. The production could have been better though. They had some technical problems and the level of the performers wasn’t near the caliber of similar shows I’ve been to. Before going to the event I was happy to see my piece was featured in Real Detroit Weekly’s coverage of the Dirty Show. Towards the end of the opening night I saw that it had sold. So overall I think I can say I had a good experience.
While I was there I had three photo shoots and I just might have some submissions for next year’s Dirty Show after reviewing a few of the photos. I started working on the images this weekend and will start posting some of them in the days to come.
