A Sign of Spring

The official poster for the Kentucky Derby Festival rolled off the presses early this morning at Derby City Litho, a sister company of Duplicator Sales & Service.  Behind the masterpiece is local artist Casey McKinney.  Through his use of bold colors, he captures the popular Derby festivities like the Balloon Race, Thunder Over Louisville and, of course, the Run for the Roses in his “Pegasus in Bloom” piece.

The poster officially goes on sale March 5th but you can pre-order now until February 5th at https://1213apparel.com/.  The public will be able to view this year’s poster and merchandise line at “Festival Unveiled” on March 5th at the Mellwood Art and Entertainment Center.
