AVAM Kinetic Sculpture Race Tomorrow

Share the News



The American Visionary Art Museum hosts tomorrow the 14th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race.  Kinetic Sculptures are amphibious, human powered works of art custom built for the race. The eight-hour race covers 15 miles—mostly on pavement, but also including a trip into the Chesapeake Bay and through mud and sand.

Spectator attire at the Kinetic Sculpture Race is often as wacky as the sculptures!


The imaginative, human powered sculptures are constructed out of used bicycles, gears, and parts. The machines can be simple, small crafts piloted by only one brave soul, or they can be sophisticated vehicles, over 50 feet long powered by a team of pilots.
