The 12th 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 juried show mixes well known professionals to emerging artists working in all mediums.

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. Since it’s inception at the turn of the century, the founders have been entertaining and enlightening the masses with a delightful event called, The Dirty Show. 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, erotic, 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 shit 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.

MONEY
“…I named what I thought was an enormous sum. Without blinking an eye, he gathered up my life work and handed me the amount I asked for: $70… I didn’t expect more. Remember that homosexuality was forbidden in most of the Western world; so all those businesses were illegal, black market. I knew that they wouldn’t have paid me more anyway — or so I believed then.”
