Kate Kaman (MFA '09) in Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby, Sat. May 16, 12:30pm

Kate Kaman will have a sculpture in the annual Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby in Philadelphia, this Saturday, May 16.

A Kinetic Sculpture is a Human-powered vehicle that also has an artistic theme. Think of parade floats on bicycles, or mummers on hand crank driven pirate ships, or an alien space ship on 2 welded together bikes, think of a giant pink poodle hurdling through space, mud, sand and water. A Kinetic Sculpture Competition is all about fun and ingenuity, making the wackiest, most interesting contraption is the goal- finishing the course or winnning is not. Kinetic Sculpture Competitions have been taking place all over the world since 1969 when a California artist named Hobart Brown made some artistic improvements to his son's tricycle.

The Derby Parade leaves at 12:30pm, the Arts Fest is from 12-5pm with bands and vendors all day.
The award ceremony will be held between 3:30 and 4pm at the Arts Fest.

The Kinetic Sculpture Derby is at the Trenton Avenue Arts Festival on the 2000-2300 blocks of Trenton Avenue in the Kensington Neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA, USA, Planet Earth. The Parade leaves from Trenton and Dauphin.
