Golden Gals Gone Wild curator Lenora Claire came up with the show’s concept after purchasing the now infamous nude oil painting of Bea Arthur by Chris Zimmerman. After turning down dozens of offers from friends, artists, and celebrities who all wanted a piece of Bea, it became clear that it was time to share her liver-spotted bazooms with the world. Rather than take Bea door-to-door, or gay bar to gay bar, Lenora remembered that she had already curated numerous successful art shows and could probably rope some of her fancy friends into contributing their own erotic depictions of the Golden Girls. After all, who better than the Golden Girls to put the *cheesecake* back into cheesecake?
The Golden Gals Gone Wild art exhibit, which will run for four weeks, will be premiering with a special opening night reception at 8 p.m. Saturday, August 11 at the World of Wonder Art Gallery. The opening night festivities are scheduled to be broadcast live on the Internet at www.ringmybell.tv.
Here’s a list of some of the artists who are a part of the show:

+ some *very* special guests.
