The American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) is thrilled to announce its 17th annual Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race has been rescheduled for Sunday, June 14, 2015, starting at 11am. The museum, which organizes the annual competition of human-powered works of art, postponed the event from its original date earlier this month due to the state of emergency declared for Baltimore City. Racers, volunteers, fans, and community partners showed their overwhelming support with this decision, as the museum’s staff worked closely with city officials to secure a new date. AVAM hopes to attract even larger crowds to the race’s many stops this year, where spectators will witness an incredible display of all-terrain vehicles (that double as works of art), traversing a course that winds through downtown Baltimore’s neighborhoods and parks. This year’s race will be sporting an “Out of This World” theme in tribute to The Hubble Space Telescope, which celebrated its 25th anniversary recently at AVAM, among many other locations.
“The race has always been dedicated to the delight, communal participation, peace and love of our City. This is a race that Baltimore loves, the world watches, and one that affirms grassroots community at its best! Mega thanks to our Maryland State Delegates, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and her staff, Baltimore City Police, Baltimore Office of Promotions and the Arts, Baltimore’s Department of Recreation and Parks, Kinetic racers & volunteers, AVAM’s staff, and all who worked diligently to help us declare: The RACE is ON!”
–Rebecca Alban Hoffberger, AVAM Founder and Director
ABOUT THE RACE:
From the American Visionary Art Museum—a race of wacky, imaginative, TOTALLY HUMAN-POWERED WORKS OF ART, DESIGNED TO TRAVEL ON LAND, THROUGH MUD, AND OVER DEEP HARBOR WATERS, constructed out of used bicycles, gears, and parts, created by a lunatic genius who tinkers around in the garage or backyard (do you know this person?)! 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 THE LAST AWARD (finishes, well, next-to-last), and other serious trophies including ART, ENGINEERING, BEST BRIBES and more. The all-day race kicks of at 11am at American Visionary Art Museum.
