If there’s still a taboo around erotic art in Las Vegas, rest assured: Dr. Laura Henkel is breaking it. The curator and specialist in human sexuality helms the Sin City Gallery. She also runs 12 Inches of Sin, an annual juried erotic art exhibition. Now, for the competition’s fifth year, an immersive art experience will accompany the annual competition.
My work will be amongst the 300 works of erotic art included in the evenings festivities.
For the April 9 event, Dr. Henkel is taking over the entire Arts Factory complex, the converted warehouse where Sin City Gallery is located, amongst other fine art studios and commercial galleries. She hopes to encourage Las Vegas’ downtown arts scene, and from 1 PM to midnight, the complex will be filled with visual and performance art, lectures, and live entertainment.
“Sin City Gallery is dedicated to providing a serious professional forum, exhibit space, and series of publications for practitioners of provocative art who have too long been marginalized or excluded from so much of the art world,” reads a press release for the event.

Robert Babylon’s award winning erotic UV (blacklight) photographs are once again to be displayed at Sin City Gallery, voted one of America’s top 5 Galleries and the best art gallery in Nevada.
The images will be on display as part of the 12″ Sin juried competition and exhibition in which Robert won a place in January with “Blacklight BumbleBee Legs”. SinCity Gallery will also be marketing more of Robert’s unique and erotic work through their gallery and website.
12 Inches of Sin features sophisticated, intelligent, witty and provocative artworks from around the world. The juried exhibition explores eroticism and sensuality through the lens of contemporary art, with one twist: every piece submitted for consideration must not be larger than one foot square. This constriction of the art’s physical space creates a tension within the art itself, expanding the challenge inherent in each piece’s creation.
The exhibition fosters fresh and exciting work by both new and established artists, and provides art patrons with the opportunity to secure works of art from prestigious and emerging artists that embody both the cutting edge of today’s contemporary art world and the vast breadth of artistic expression.
Sin City Gallery will also be exhibiting other Robert Babylon artwork at the exhibition and offering more Of Robert’s unique works in it’s ever increasing on-line catalogue.
