Dr. Sketchy: Visiting the New Location in KC

Our model Luna Pearl

Many faithful readers have written to us asking about the new location for Dr. Sketchy.  What's it like?
We at Larryville Artists did some investigating, and have the answers for you!

This past summer,  Rachel moved Dr. Sketchy from her loft space in the West Bottoms to the Russian Hill neighborhood in Kansas City Kansas.  The event is now held in a former Russian Orthodox Church.  The building sits on a high hill that overlooks the city; you can see the roof of the church from the highway.  The space has tall ceilings, perfect for Rachel's ariel practice.

We went to a session last night.  Sonny, our MC, was wearing a fabulous outfit including sparkly heels and a wig made of feathers. Luna Pearl, from Tulsa, did a great job modeling for us.

There are a few changes.  The party drop-in atmosphere has dropped off a little because the location is not as accessible to some as the loft space.  We missed DJ Cyan, although DJ Volante did a nice job. The cost has raised a little to $10.00.  And finally, only two photographers are allowed to roam around.

Russian Hill History
Russian Hill was originally a neighborhood that was comprised of Russian Immigrants. Some of the neighborhood was broken up when highways were built.  Rachel says it is now an art friendly neighborhood.  The church was the centerpiece for the neighborhood.
