So what can attendees expect? To sate the stomach while heating up the room, CultureHaus is offering the sensual taste of Nyataimori aka "naked sushi," the art of arranging pieces of sushi atop nude men and women in conjunction with an oyster bar (oysters are renowned for their alleged aphrodisiac properties). Massage and live figure painting will help ignite the senses of touch and sight; to learn more, you'll just have to show up. Art of Passion also includes a silent auction and special offers from event sponsors. The party starts tonight at 7 p.m. at the DAM's Ponti Hall, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway; tickets are $35 to $45.
