EVENT DATE: May 07, 2016

THE STORY:

We need your help to make American Visionary Art Museum's 2016 Kinetic Sculpture Race the best yet. Please consider donating towards the Race expenses and be sure to come out to see this high-spirited and festooned visual feast where swarms of school kids, bikers, housewives, and backyard tinkerers will compete. 

AVAM will present the 18th annual East Coast Grand Championship Kinetic Sculpture Race on Saturday, May 7. Over 35 human-powered works of art will race 15 miles through Baltimore City streets, Harbor waters in Canton, and mud and sand pits in Patterson Park. Mainly constructed of bikes and gears, the machines can be simple, small crafts, piloted by only one brave soul, or they can be over 50 feet long, extremely well-engineered, sophisticated vehicles powered by a team of pilots. Pilots ("Kinetinauts") compete for the most coveted Grand Mediocre East Coast Champion Award (finishes right in the middle), and the highly prized Next To Last Award (finishes, well, next-to-last), and other serious trophies including Art, Engineering, Best Bribes and more! Several area schools use the Race as an opportunity to teach science and engineering to students in a fun, hands-on way.
