Museum Mondays: 17th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race

Monday, April 27th, 2015 by Lauren Keyes

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!
