AVAM's 2010 Kinetic Sculpture Race on the front page of Wall Street Journal!
As we all know, The Wall Street Journal primarily covers U.S. and international business, and financial news and issues. But, as of 5/19/2010, it has expanded its coverage to include something REALLY IMPORTANT: AVAM's celebration of Creativity, Ingenuity, Community Involvement, and Irrepressible Spirit - The 12th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race!!!
In case you didn't pick up a copy on the newsstand (The Journal has the largest circulation of any newspaper in the United States! 2.1 million copies!), you can see the free, online version: Sculpture That Can Slog Through Mud Pit is a Real Piece of Work. Be sure to check out the slideshow and video! You'll see AVAM's own Fifi the pink poodle, Bumpo the elephant, tremendous crowds, and more!
In both the print and online versions, there's one of those awesome little stipple drawings (a hallmark of the WSJ and usually reserved for portraits of CEOs and such) of one of the vehicles:
Thanks and congratulations to all of the Kinetinauts, Pit Crew, Barnacles, Families, hundreds of Volunteers (including the "Mud Doctors" featured in the article!), Spectators, Public Servants, and more that make the race possible and a stunning success! And it's not to early to start working on your own vehicle for the Kinetic XIII, on May 7, 2011. See kineticbaltimore.com for more inspiration, race rules, lore, and more!
