Original artwork for poster created by Margo Humphrey. Since Humphrey’s first solo exhibition in 1965, her art has been exhibited and collected worldwide, and it now resides in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

BACVA (1987-1991) was a pre-internet organization that attempted to provide a network for local groups, primarily through a calendar for outlining upcoming events. They also organized symposia for the organizations.

Roller Derby found a home in the San Francisco Bay Area following its Depression-era Chicago origins. An early television sensation, it faded to a modest existence in Los Angeles during the 1950s. Creator Leo Seltzer turned the game over to his son Jerry, who repositioned the traveling Bay Bombers from their home terrain of San Francisco to Fresno and everywhere in-between. In the 21st century, the game made an astonishing return not only in Northern California but also worldwide.
