The 10th Annual Dirty Show® has become one of the largest erotic art exhibitions in the world. Attended by thousands, the show features hundreds of works from a variety of artists from all over the world. The curators have promised the Tenth Anniversary to be the biggest event in the show's history and have added more space.

The juried show mixes well known professionals to emerging artists working in all mediums. There is an open call for entries though Dec 15th. There is no cost to submit, however all artists selected by the jury will be charged a nominal 15 dollar submission fee.

ABOUT DIRTY
"The mission of The Dirty Show is to promote, publish and propagate erotic art in all forms. This is done in the form of an erotic art exhibition which has become one of the largest in the world.

"Held every Valentine’s Weekend, the show features a large number of artists, from first-timers to the famous at their dirtiest. While primarily focusing on area artists, The Dirty Show is open to artists from anywhere in the world, providing the work is good and erotic, and they can get it here."

PORN OR ART?
"This is the question most media poses. The answer is simple. It is 100%, genuine art. We have done extensive research on porn, logging in countless hours on the internet — we know porn, intimately. While some pieces, to the layman, may appear to be pornographic, it is as artistic as any stuff you would see in a museum. There have been a few pieces which some feel are not “dirty”. This to is a misconception, most likely due to the lack of artistic education of the viewer."

THE LOUVRE
“I know my little ‘dirty drawings’ are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if — I would like to say ‘when,’ but I better say ‘if’ — our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving. Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms.” (1991)
