What exactly is 12 Inches of Sin? 

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.  

In its seventh year, the annual juried art exhibition explores the diverse landscape of sexuality through the lens of contemporary art, with a twist: every piece submitted for consideration may not exceed one one-foot square in measurement. This scale allows a certain challenge to emerge for each artist in hand with an astonishing tension between subject matter and material. The project strives to foster artistic practice that embodies cutting-edge creativity and diversity of the contemporary art world.

The globally recognized project is dedicated to promoting educational dialogues about human diversity and sexuality. Within this methodology, the exhibition seeks to move beyond the idea of produced sexuality and offer an alternative, inclusive and meaningfully personalized view of human identity, sexuality, gender and expression. Artists from 23 countries have submitted to the exhibition.  

The 12 Inches of Sin weekend is an annual event that showcases art, entertainment and fun workshops.  

Can I buy art and bring it home the same day?

Yes! We encourage you to do so!

Will there be an ATM at the event?

Yes, we hope you will buy art, buy drinks, buy food, and perhaps donate a little more dinero to the Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence!

Who are The Sisters? What is SADAP? 

The Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence was founded in 2005 in Las Vegas. They are affiliated with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence founded in 1979 in San Francisco. The Sisters host fundraising events to team up with local charities that serve the Las Vegas community. They are also a nonprofit organization that raises money for its Sisters AIDS Drug Assistance Program (SADAP). SADAP is designed to serve those in the Las Vegas community who are not eligible for governmentally funded services, and are therefore, unable to remain adherent to the HIV drug regimen. Ticket sales for 12 Inches of Sin are donated to the Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s SADAP program.

Are there any rules?

As long as you are responsible, respectful and consenual, you are good to go! Please be mindful that some people may not want their picture taken. Some people may want their personal space respected. Be mindful, and have a great time!

Can I be a vendor and sell at the event?

Yes, you may. We may provide you with an air-conditioned retail space to use during the event. You may hang directly on the wall and install to meet your needs. The space must be in use during the weekend and cleaned at the end. If you are an artist, there is no fee to create an installation or sell work. If you sell, we ask that 20-30% be donated to the nonprofit. It’s an honor system and we will hold the event next year… so, honesty is best policy. If you are a business, there is a fee. As this is a fundraiser, the nonprofit may write you a charitable tax letter. We want cool people and epic art at the venue. We are totally open to interactive concepts, too. Bring your creative A-game as we are being select with invites. Accepting vendor submissions thru June 30. Please contact info@sincitygallery.com or call 702.608.2461 for more information.

Are you looking for volunteers?
