Everyone is welcome to participate in the second annual Community Sculpture Race and Exhibition at Danehy Park on Sunday, April 23rd, 2017 (corrected date). This is a Cambridge Science Festival Event, a 4/10 mile race of wheeled arts and crafts on the loopy sidewalks around the Olympic soccer field at Danehy Park in northwest Cambridge, followed by an 2-hour exhibition of your work!!!
Families, artists, engineers, teens, professionals, amateurs–build a sculpture on wheels! Please see the “Calls” section for design guidelines and FAQs, and the ‘Make’ link that has ideas for building racers. We’ll have some workshops coming up, check out the “Classes” section. Have a look at the photos of last year’s race.
Please let us know by Friday, April 21–earlier is better so we can send you information!–if you intend to participate. Racers should arrive by 9:45 (where the green marker is on the map), earlier if you need to assemble your contraption. Your friends should arrive by 10:45–earlier is better because it’s the race site is hard to find–for a sharp 11 AM event kickoff!
The race is followed by an exhibition of works lasting until 2 PM. There will be an artist/engineer design table at the exhibition where fans of all ages can contribute a conceptual design for a racing sculpture.
Please also visit us at the Cambridge Science Festival Robot Festival and Zoo on Saturday, April 15 from noon to 5 PM in the outdoors basketball court at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School on Cambridge Street. Submit your entry there!
