What's all this, then?
Kinetic Sculptures are so amazing you're bound to have some questions. Here are some answers.
Who's responsible for this race?
The race is organized by the American Visionary
Art Museum. AVAM is a great museum, and also sponsors other wonderful events throughout the year, including
the Mondo Exotica party. For more information about AVAM, contact:
How Can I Support the Race?
If you wish to support the Kinetic Sculpture cause, volunteer! There's a page describing what you can do and how to do it. You can also visit and join the American Visionary Art Museum. Putting on a race like this isn't free, and they could use your support to help make Baltimore--and the entire East Coast--more fun and interesting. If you visit the museum on any day except race day, you can see several kinetic sculptures in the Sculpture Barn exhibit—ask at the front desk for more information. If your company or foundation would like to sponsor part of the Kinetic Sculpture Race, please contact Katie at AVAM at 410-244-1900.
Who built this website?
Tom Jones of Greenbelt, Maryland created and maintains the site. If you see anything incorrect or broken, write to me at email@example.com. I'm an independent Web Architect consultant, building and overhauling websites for clients. If you want to see some of the other things I've done, check out my homepage or read exploits a long time ago when I led Stealth Force Beta, a covert squad dedicated to constructive vandalism.
Do you have any more photos?
Yes, we have many more photos than are displayed on these pages. Write if you have questions.
Where can I get Kinetic Sculpture Souvenirs?
You can purchase a gigantic photo book: Kinetic Kompendium with an extensive history of the California Grand Championship and photos from other races including Baltimore. AVAM also creates a t-shirt for each year's race--the easiest way to get one is to volunteer; they also often have some shirts for sale around race time.
Can I use your photos?
All photos on this site are ©Copyright Tom Jones and other photographers of KineticBaltimore.com. Specific advance permission is required to use any of these photos for any purpose beyond routine web browsing, although racers will find it easy to obtain permission and our photos of their vehicles.
