Ultra Pop! has teamed up with the Derby City Roller Girls (DCRG) to celebrate Louisville’s “Other Derby” with a first of its kind roller-derby-themed art show. The opening reception will feature art for purchase from some of Louisville’s best artists and the DCRG will be onsite to mix and mingle (they promise not to hip check or J-block anyone.) “The newest iteration of roller derby has a strong grassroots-DIY heritage. It pairs well with Louisville’s local- first attitude,” says DCRG Mace Freely. DCRG merch and tickets to the last home bout of the season will be available. “We like the idea of giving our skaters, photographers and local artists a place to present their art while spreading the word about roller derby!” declares roller girl SlingHer Kyle. The reception is Saturday and the show will run through May 31.
