Kinetic Sculpture Race


Editorial Review

"Kinetinauts" pilot their homemade, human-powered mobile works of art along a 15-mile course through downtown Baltimore. The colorful vehicles are cobbled together from old bicycles, industrial gears and other scraps.

The race is one of the wackiest things you'll ever see, a day to inspire everyone with artists' creativity and Charm City's quirkiness. Dress up in a costume and cheer on homemade vehicles -- some built to look like a platypus, elephant or pink poodle -- while they travel through mud, sand, Baltimore Harbor waters and city streets.

The race goes all day. Best viewing spots: American Visionary Art Museum, 800 Key Highway. 10 a.m.; Canton Water Park, 2903 Boston St.; 11:15 a.m.-1 p.m.; Patterson Park, Baltimore Street and South Linwood Avenue, 1-2:30 p.m.
