Dear Adult Industry News (AINews.com) and Readers: Naomi Wilzig's World Erotic Art Museum and George O DeLorenzo, Artist extraordinaire, are proud to announce a recent agreement to display an artistic drawing done by George O. DeLorenzo which will be entitled "Pompeii Revisited".

The theme of the drawing will be to demonstrate the possible effect that the lack of religion may play in the loosening of erotic morals. Of all the various events that I have shared with you and your readers, this one is dear to my heart because my artwork will be recognized for having social significance which may benefit society.

The second benefit will be enlightening the readers to one of the coolest museums that exists, i.e. The World Erotic Museum of Naomi Wilzig. Check out the image [to the right] and story below...

(MIAMI BEACH, FL) -- The plans of Naomi Wilzig to take her personal collection of erotic art to a public forum have been fully realized with the recent opening of the World Erotic Art Museum, located at 1205 Washington Avenue. By all accounts one of the art world's more remarkable women, Wilzig's collection, valued at some $10 million, has now attained serious consideration throughout the world for its historic as well as its artistic value.

Housed on 12,000 square feet of carpeted walkways leading to individual rooms, patrons are greeted in a foyer dominated by the legendary "Fountain of Diana, the Huntress." They then proceed through a series of fiber optic-lit cubicles displaying Wilzig's extraordinary mix of paintings, sculptures, and tapestries where the intriguing perspective of erotic art is historically drawn from the early days of the Roman Empire to the contemporary world of such memorable art sculptures as the famous male prop made famous in Stanley Kubrick's controversial 1971 film, "A Clockwork Orange."

A grandmother whose three children heartily endorse her passion, Wilzig is the widow of the late Siggi Wilzig, the CEO and President of the Trust Company of New Jersey who gained international prominence as a founder of the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. And as the first Holocaust survivor to lecture cadets at West Point. It was their eldest son, Ivan, now founder of the Peaceman Charitable Foundation, who entreated his mother to "bring me some erotic conversation pieces" for his bachelor apartment.

Nearly fourteen years later, visits to antique shops and flea markets across the U.S. And Europe have resulted in Wilzig being acknowledged as one of the nation's preeminent collectors of erotic art, amassing a collection of approximately 4,000 pieces considered to be the greatest collection of fine erotic art in the United States.

Declaring that collecting has long since passed being "my little pastime," Wilzig feels strongly about the importance of the art she has accumulated. "These works serve no great value sitting at home," says Wilzig. "Centuries old oil paintings, water colors, rare sculptures and statues cast in bronze demand to be seen. These are works of art that illustrate the evolution of erotica, the cultures and the time frames in which they were created. It is a genre of art that is aesthetically important and should be seen as a pathway through history and its cultures."

As such, the World Erotic Art Museum contains a research library of over 250 volumes on erotic art purchased by Wilzig. On site, patrons travel through time and artistic treasures depicting the biblical era, Greek and Roman mythology, antiquities from Asia, China, Japan, India and Africa. Wilzig notes that three common themes reproduced throughout the centuries are Adam and Eve, Leda and the Swan (a Greek myth of adultery and seduction) and various representations of Satyrs and Nymphs.

Into the world of contemporary art, the museum is home to countless works discovered through Wilzig's travels throughout Europe and the United States illustrating responses of the most pressing controversial political and sociological issues that, through recent decades, have colored the world we live in.

Writer as well as collector, Wilzig has authored five books on her personal erotic art journey including "Forbidden Art the World of Erotica," "Visions of Erotica," "Erotic Secrets," "Erotic Treasures," and "Erotic Wonders." an avid activist and philanthropist, Wilzig has also written "Lifeline to Eternity," an award-winning script on Jewish identity which was honored by the Women's Division of Orthodox Congregations of America, and "The Suffering Survivor," a poetic account of the Holocaust. She is a frequent guest lecturer on how erotic art relates to human sexuality at Pasco-Hernandez colleges in New Port Richey and Brooksville.

Wilzig is assisted by J.C. Harris, General Manager; Julian Murphy, Art Director; and Robert Harbour, Sales and Marketing Director.

The World Erotic Art Museum is located on the Mezzanine Level of 1205 Washington Avenue, the site that was formerly occupied by the Luke Campbell Recording Studio. Open seven days from 11 A.M. to Midnight, admission is $15 per person.
