2014 has kicked off with a bang for Skin City, officially opening the doors of its new two-story Downtown Spaces location in Las Vegas. The grand reopening and ribbon cutting party on January 3rd, as expected, was filled with art, music, mirth and of course, body painted models!
Nikki Artale from Las Vegas Informer was in attendance to give a full report and snap photos.
Skin City Body Painting has moved to a new and bigger space that features a photo and video area, art gallery and two floors which allows room for more body painting. They are now located at 1800 Industrial Road, Suite 130. Robin Barcus Slonina is the founder, artist and owner of Skin City Body Painting and is known for having the best award winning body painters, photographers, makeup artists and models in Las Vegas.
Skin City was treated with an outpouring of support from local artists and businesses who contributed to success of the evening, including Paige Overton, lead singer of The Clydesdale performing a rare acoustic set, Showboy Bakeshop providing delicious cupcakes to partygoers, and numerous artists who donated their work as raffle and silent auction items. One of the biggest hits of the night was the one-of-a-kind body paint hologram, created by master body painter Paul Roustan.
Joe Torrence from SpyOnVegas.com also dropped by to include us in his First Friday Las Vegas coverage.
The after party commenced across the street at Skin City’s new after-work hang, Hard Hat Lounge, where the new band KoocheeKoo debuted their first gig. The oddball gypsy/punk/alt/pop quintet was led by Anais Thomassian of Absinthe and featured other prominent Strip performers in the band.
Robin is eternally grateful to her rockstar in-house team: Jessica Westergom, Studio Director; Charlotte Taulli, Studio Manager; Ross Gibson, Talent Director; Carolin Feigs, Model Director.
Skin City is looking forward to this new year and hopes you stop by to visit our exciting new space!
