Opened on September 2 at Slow Culture gallery, the exhibition shows eclectic but organic lineup of 20-plus established and emerging artists ranges from skateboarding legend-cum-painter-photographer Ed Templeton to folk illustrator Stacey Rozich to Playmate Brook Power (Miss May 2016). 

''Playboy magazine has never told its artists to do “Playboy art”; they just chose good artists to be in Playboy and then let them loose. So I think the heart of our show really represents the magazine in that way. It speaks of Playboy without relying on a weird theme,'' told Jay Howell Playboy, curator of the exhibition.
