Human Connection Arts and Andy Golub return to Union Square for the 9th annual NYC Bodypainting Day!

This July 24, from noon to 4 p.m., 50 everyday people of various ages and genders – will strip naked and have their bodies painted. After 4-hours of live painting, artists, models and the viewing public will join in the formation of a giant, human circle with up to 1,000 people at the north end of the park.

Once again, DJ John Rovito will be spinning tunes throughout the event.

This year there is an exciting new addition to Bodypainting Day! The Circle of Hope will take place immediately after the paintings are completed. Hundreds, maybe even thousands of people will all hold hands and form a giant circle, then we will sing songs about circles.

The experience of a huge group of people gathering to create a giant circle will create a flow of energy celebrating our true unity. We will all discover the impact of creating this giant and simple shape together.

Following Circle of Hope, artists and models will ride a double-decker tour bus through the city and over the Manhattan Bridge, showing off their beautiful body paintings, and landing in Bushwick, Brooklyn for a private after-party.

Venue: Union Square Park
