Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
Kinetic Spectator’s Guide

Here's a Sculpture!
2013 Spectators Guide

Spectator’s Guide coming in Late April!

We’re furiously working on the 2014 Spectator’s Guide, including tons of details about seeing the race. We expect to publish it the week before the race. We’ll send you an email when the new Spectator’s Guide is available if you join the Spectator mailing list.

Until then, the 2013 Spectator’s guide is the best estimate of how this year’s race will go. It’s your complete guide to seeing the race, with a map, list of entries, and other information about where to go and how to see the race.

Directions from Out of Town

Here are directions to key spots:

  1. AVAM: AVAM is the easiest place to get to from the interstates, particularly I-95. There are directions on the AVAM Website, or you can figure out how to get there from Google Maps.
  2. Canton Waterfront Park: Right on the harbor, you can drive there with these directions from Google Maps.
  3. Patterson Park: A bit further into the city, but not too hard to get to. Get directions from Google Maps.
