A nudie sleepover is coming to Art Series Hotels

From the 1 May to the 15 June, Art Series Hotel Group is inviting guests to sleepover, strike a pose and become the muse of a life drawn masterpiece.

‘De-robing’ of inhibitions at the check-in desk, guests will be able to stand proud in all their glory like Michelangelo’s David, gracefully recline in the nuddy like an Art Series ‘Schaller’ figure, or robe up a la the Renaissance.

The ‘No Robe package’ asks guests to reveal the real them for a team of artists to capture the image in art form, forever. It will be available at all of the seven Art Series Hotels located in the hottest art and cultural hubs of Melbourne, Bendigo, Adelaide and Brisbane.

“Art Series Hotels are passionate about supporting the arts and delivering unique art inspired experiences for our guests and welcoming them with their creativity.

“The No Robe campaign certainly goes back to the history of the nude form in art and self-expression,” CEO of Art Series Hotels, Will Deague said.

The human body has been a constant source of inspiration throughout history. From thousands joining in the Dark Mofo Nude Solstice Swim to NSW Gallery’s recent exhibition ‘Nude’, Art Series Hotel Group will join the growing movement to celebrate this age-old subject matter and will be exploring all manners of self-expression.

Those that can’t bare the thought of suddenly becoming a real life model in front of a stranger are reassured, as purpose-built camera units allow poses to be taken in private, before the photo is safely sent to the Art Series’ team of artists to recreate.

With the campaign celebrating the group’s passion for art, life and self-expression, guests are encouraged to think of creative ways to strike their pose, outside of just letting their robe fall to the floor. 

“Lets face it, as long as people have been around, so has nudity. At Art Series we don’t buy into the ‘Nude is Rude’ camp of thinking,” Deague added.

We want to encourage our guests to dare to be different and bold – to celebrate their individuality and feel liberated in their own skin. It’s about stripping away hang-ups and be free – nude or not!

Guests who prefer not to pose for a life drawing can still get involved by sharing a photo on Instagram, encapsulating ‘being free’ within the hotel. Guests need to simply tag #norobe to be in with the chance of winning a night on Art Series.

The ‘No Robe package’ will be available to book from today, starting from $229 per night.
