The goal of the achieving Arrowhead Regional Arts Council grant funding is to have my images printed on high-quality photographic paper and have them professionally mounted and framed to ensure a professional appearance for my first solo exhibition at the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids, Minnesota during April 2015. Next goal is to benefit the MacRostie by bringing in a diverse audience during the display period. Bring recognition to women skaters of roller derby teams across the Iron Range whom will be featured in my exhibition images. Dispel misconceptions about how roller derby used to be depicted on television from the 1970s and 1980s. My exhibit will contribute a more accurate understanding of this sport, and could increase support for our Grand Rapids roller derby team and potentially for teams across the Iron Range of Minnesota. The outcome of receiving Arrowhead Regional Arts Council funding will be high-quality professionally printed and framed images to display during my solo exhibition at the MacRostie Art Center.
I had the showing printed and framed by a professional organization. I brought recognition to the Iron Range and the teams found throughout (e.g., Iron Range Maidens, Babe City Rollers). The showing dispelled misconceptions about roller derby (e.g., the old 1970s roller derby was for show - today's derby is quite competitive). And finally, the showing contributed to an accurate understanding of roller derby.
