Ultra Pop’s 6th Annual XXX Art Show
Free | 6 p.m.
This Valentine’s Day, get your lover something with a bit more kink to it (and no, I’m not talking about the vanilla “50 Shades Darker”). I’m talking about artwork from Ultra Pops! annual “XXX Art Show.” The show asks some of Louisville’s most prolific artists to dive into all manner of sexual delights and depravity to create something both dirty and delightful (just like LEO!).
Sleep in till noon, go eat some brunch, get back into bed.
