Nerd Nite explores @KUboobs, and Figure Drawing in East Lawrence Tonight

Rachel Smalter Hall talks about @KUBoobs at Nerd Nite

Rachel Smalter Hall talked about @KUboobs at Nerd Nite last night. @KUboobs is a Twitter viral site started to inspire the KU basketball team where self photos of the cleavage of women fans are posted.  It has more than 60,000 followers, and more than 30 other schools have replicated its format.  Rachel Smalter Hall's feminist take on the phenomenon was originally written for the blog The Larryville Chronicles, but her commentary was quickly picked up by the national press and spurred controversy and comments by readers.  Does @KUboobs allow for a male gaze, or is being sexy part of the female experience?  


Tonight, the Art Guild hosts figure drawing at their new space at 512 E. 9th from 7:00-10:00.  Bring drawing supplies and $5.00.  It's a punk revival theme, and the poses will be rock inspired.
Here is what they say on the Facebook invite page says:
Punk is about an individual going against the grain and standing up and saying "This is who I am"
-Joey Ramone-    That's how we feel about art.

 Here is the Facebook invite:
