Project Space, an event put on by the Salem Art Association, seeks people willing to have their tattoos photographed for a new, dynamic temporary installation in downtown Salem. The installation, by artist Steve Anchell, consists of free photographs of body artwork in July, and a display of the best of the photos later in the summer.

On Saturdays July 14, 21 and 28, between 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. the public is invited to the Metropolitan Building at 150 Liberty Street NE to have their tattoos photographed by Anchell. No appointments are necessary; arrive ready to be photographed.

There is no charge and participants who provide an email address will be sent a free digital file of their photo.

Anchell and Project Space welcomes all or part of tattoos – the only restriction being what the individual feels comfortable showing. They hope that men and women, singles and in groups will be part of the event. Everyone is welcome.

The best images will be on display from August 15 to September 14 at Project Space.

Anchell is an internationally published photographer who now makes his home in Salem.

This will be the Salem Art Association’s fourth Project Space Art Project. For more information contact the Salem Art Association.
