SHARE Exhibit of naked celebrities in anti-fur ads set to open in Chicago

Over the years, a number of celebrities who supported People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals’ anti-fur campaign, modeled in those “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ads.

Now, as that campaign reaches it’s 25th anniversary, an exhibit those stars-in-the-buff advertisements is going on display at the Mars Gallery, 1139 W. Fulton, in the River West neighborhood. Among those featured in the “Naked Ambition: 25 Years of PETA’s Sexy Celebrity Ads” will be Olivia Munn, Pamela Anderson, Taraji P. Henson, Kim Basinger, Christina Applegate and Alicia Silverstone.

In a statement, PETA’s Dan Mathews said, “Knowing that ‘sex sells,’ PETA has used saucy ads to sell a serious message and turn heads in order to open hearts for decades … We find that when people get naked, people pay attention.”

The exhibition opens Oct. 28 and runs through Nov. 1.
