It kind of makes sense that South Florida was once home to the world's most acclaimed pinup photographers -- the weather is perfectly suited for tiny amounts of clothing.
Bunny Yeager, for instance, started off as one of the most photographed models in Miami but eventually ended up stepping behind the camera herself and shooting even the late great Bettie Page herself.
To celebrate, the Museum of Art|Fort Lauderdale's current photo exhibit of Yeager's work, "All Together Now" and "AIGA Miami," a group of you local designers with the American Institute of Graphic Arts, are hosting Pin It Up!, an evening of art and design, this Saturday night.
The event features live art, music, a photo booth, a special one-night juried exhibition of the best submitted Instagram photos for "All Together Now"'s 20-day retro-themed challenge, and a free drink ticket with admission.
To highlight the theme, professional models will be painted in pinup style by a body painter right onsite. So, there'll be plenty to gawk at and enough rockabilly fantasy fodder to last you till you're smiling in your grave.
The event is taking place from 7 to 10 p.m. on the museum's Peck Terrace, or inside, if the last bit of Chantal rains it out. Admission is $10 or $5 for AIGA members. ATN members get in free. The Museum of Art|Fort Lauderdale is located at 1 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-525-5500, or visit moafl.org.
