Kinetic Sculpture Race What: 17th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race

Where: American Visionary Art Museum

When: Saturday, May 2nd, 2015// All day (Race kicks off at 10:00 am)

The American Visionary Art Museum is holding its 17th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race this Saturday, May 2nd. If you haven’t been to the Kinetic Sculpture Race before, don’t know what a Kinetic Sculpture is, or maybe don’t even know what kinetic means, now is your chance to get in on the action and find out! These creative, functional, human-run sculptures are beautifully made to conquer 15 miles of rocky roads, massive mud-pits, the depths of “quick” sand, and treacherous water crossings! Some sculptures are small, simple, and questionably safe, while others can be over 50-feet long, aesthetically phenomenal, and build by lunatic engineers who are hungry for victory in their beautiful moving sculptures. All of the sculptures are 100% human-built and human-powered works of art. Get a great view of the race from various places around the city; to name just a few: Atop Federal Hill, the Korean War Memorial Park in Canton, and Patterson Park. No matter where you are Baltimore, you won’t want to miss this crazy, kooky, Kinetic Sculpture Race. Find out more about the race and the American Visionary Art Museum here!

Sports Saturdays: How Amazin’ Are The Mets?

Saturday, April 25th, 2015 by Justin Thomas

Sports SaturdayMeet the Mets!

Don’t look now, but the New York Mets seem to be back in their “Amazin'” form for the first time in ages.

As the Mets prepare to start the Subway Series against their Bronx rivals, the New York Yankees, they find themselves at the top of the MLB with a 13-3 record, while also riding the momentum of an 11-game win streak.

They’re finally in a position to take New York and all of the major leagues by storm, but just how Amazin’ are these Mets?

Just going by the numbers, you have to be impressed with this team. Their 11-game win streak is the longest they’ve been on since 1986, when they also started 2-3 before the streak started.

They also accomplished these win totals at the start of the season with a win streak in 1969.

The Mets won the World Series both of those years. (more…)

Of course, you could make your own lemon stick on any given day, but there’s something about kicking off the season with a lemon stick from the FlowerMart that makes Spring in Baltimore that much sweeter!

It all started over a few drinks and a simple question: “If you could do an anthology that covered an album, what would it be?” And then came the Baltimore CityLit Project, “Clash by Night“, a poetic anthology, developed by Gregg Wilhelm and Gerry LaFemina, based on English punk band, The Clash, and their renowned album, London Calling. The duo found a connection with the album that many other’s shared, and now they’ve formed a new form of art revolving around it! Many poets came together to create poems that are inspired by the album, and on May 2nd, they want to share their work with you! If you have a similar love for poems, sonnets, The Clash, or even just getting out of the house for the day, you won’t want to pass up the CityLit Project! Learn more here!
