" Head in the Clouds, Feet on the Ground" -- Having fun since 2013!
To All Kinetinauts Past and Future,
Saturday, May 2 would have been Baltimore’s 22nd Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race. We will not race this year, but we will celebrate!
Mother Theresa and her team are rising to the challenge and bringing us a portion of the opening ceremony: a live Virtual Blessing of De-feet by Sister Euphonia O’Blivion (aka Joe Wall) with an uplifting message for all.
We invite you to don clean socks, stick your feet in the air, and join us for this holiest of blessings. Look for other special guest appearances (like maybe the Soda Quackers with our video above??)
The online event starts at 11am Baltimore time (EDT), but registration is required at https://bit.ly/2xMes9Z
Hope to see you there!
Kinetic Mother Theresa
And the Soda Quackers Team
We're an assortment of longtime & new found friends who bring together a wide range of talents and good humor in order to create a people-powered vehicle that can meet the challenges of a 14-mile race!
Kinetic sculpture races are organized contests of human powered, amphibious, all-terrain works of art. The event first launched in 1969 in Ferndale, California in 1969. Today, races are held in several cities around the country, with the winner of each race competing in a World Championship Event.
The Soda Quackers have been competing in the Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race, sponsored by the American Visionary Art Museum, since 2013. In addition to winning the grand prize in 2019, the group has won other accolades, including Engineering Award, Golden Dinosaur, and Best Costumes.
Understandably, Mother Theresa has postponed this year's race due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the naturally free-spirited Soda Quackers will not be sidelined for long. As soon as the virus clears, we will continue to build our "wild thing", enjoying the luxury of time "to be even more brilliant", as noted by a seasoned Quacker!
We have halted construction until the virus clears. We will continue to post announcements here as well as by email. Please use the Contact Us form below if you wish to be on our email list or join our team.
