PLAY Bar at the Museum of Sex

2013 marks the kickoff of one the most delicious and devilish Museum of Sex projects to-date: PLAY, the first-ever food-sex-art-cocktail bar. Now, PLAY Bar needs the help of artists to fill the interior space with their wildest dreams. One book at a time. Opening in March, 2013, the PLAY Bar will house a "library of desire." The Museum of Sex curators are searching for a select group of artists to design a series of twenty “Sex Sketchbooks” which will be featured in this new space.

The Museum of Sex will supply each selected artist with twenty reclaimed books that can be illustrated, modified, painted, glued, cut and manipulated in order to best represent their vision of a “Sex Sketchbook”. Each series of "Sex Sketchbooks" will be placed on a dedicated shelf within the PLAY lounge and will include a plaque with the artists name. The designed books will be permanently on display for visitors to discover and enjoy. To be considered, artists need to submit samples of their work before January 31st to play (at) museumofsex (dot) com.
