Kinetic Sculpture Racing is a competitive outdoor activity in which artists build sculptures on wheels to be raced. Sculpture Racing is a ¾ mile race from bridge to bridge. Sculpture Racing takes fine art out of the galleries and museums and into the streets. The artist that crosses the finish line first is declared the worlds best artist, without dispute.

Sculptures will be accepted through submissions and juried on May 1st. The three member jury will be announced in May. There is a non-refundable submission fee of $10.

Two categories – Pedal Powered and Human Powered. The Pedal powered category will start 5 minutes in advance of the human powered category and each category will be judged separately.

Pedaled Powered – These can be any type of sculpture that is powered by pedaling through a gear system. There are no limitations to the design however the overall sculpture should reflect the use of kinetic movement in both it’s movement and it’s art. The sculpture must be durable enough to withstand a course of ¾ miles.
