Nude Nite 2012 is in full swing just east of Ybor City this weekend. The annual show, now in its fourth year in Tampa, is a three-day art celebration of everything nude. Paintings, sculpture, photography, live burlesque, and live nude art have become staples of the popular event. There are even places for do-it-yourself photos.
