Oklahoma City, OK (OPENPRESS) A photo by fine-art photographer Dirk Hooper featuring gender icon Buck Angel that has been chosen for the Kinsey Institute's 2014 Juried Art Show. Jurors have selected over 90 works of art for the show. The show opens to the general public on Saturday, May 17th in the Grunwald Gallery of Art at Indiana University.
Photographer Dirk Hooper said, "My photography, in general, is about magnifying a fantasy persona, or elevating subjects by emphasizing their strengths. I tell subjects that I want to present the person you are on Halloween, not the person you are in day-to-day life. My photos tend to have an erotic or fetish quality, but I want to stimulate your mind, not your naughty bits." About Buck Angel, Hooper added, "I created the setting and chose the aesthetic look of this photo to present a timeless iconic visual to match Mr. Angel's iconic presence."
The Kinsey Institute's Juried Art Show will be open Saturday, May 17th through Saturday, July 12th. The show will be at the Grunwald Gallery of Art, located at 1201 E 7th St. at Indiana University in Bloomington Indiana.

The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show premiered in April 2006 in the Kinsey Institute Gallery. The 9th annual juried show will be held this summer at the Grunwald Gallery of Art on the Indiana University campus. The internationally known competition gives artists the opportunity to exhibit their work at one of the premiere spaces for contemporary art in the Midwest. The artworks cover a range of themes, including sex, gender, eroticism, reproduction, sexuality, romantic relationships, the politics of sex and gender, the human figure, and sexual health.
Buck Angel is a female to male transsexual adult film star, who has traveled the world spreading his message of self-acceptance to places as diverse as Yale University, Idea City, Spike TV, The Tyra Banks Show and the Howard Stern Show. Buck Angel is redefining gender and educating an entire generation on the fluidity of sexuality. Since Buck coined the phrase "It's not what's between your legs that defines your gender," the term has become an anthem for men and women everywhere who have been inspired by his message of acceptance.
