Kinetic Sculpture Parade

Join the parade with us on June 6th!

Cash awards for best entries!

Calling all creators, builders, burners, artists, and anyone else who feels inspired! You’re invited to build a kinetic sculpture – art that moves – to join the Kinetic Sculpture Parade at noon on June 6th, 2015. Go big and wild with a team of friends or pull your kiddos in a wagon with pinwheels and whirlygig hats  – all are welcome!

Click here for all the bits and pieces you need to know to build and participate in the Ebb & Flow Kinetic Sculpture Parade.

The parade will travel down the Santa Cruz RiverWalk, which will be transformed into the Ebb & Flow River ArtWalk. As we move down the path, ten temporary Ebb & Flow arts projects will be unveiled. We’ll end at the Tannery Arts Center for the River Arts Celebration – a full afternoon of food, music, dance, and river-related fun for the whole family.

Five $500 cash prizes will be awarded for outstanding sculptures in these categories:

Wild Spawn (Best River/Critter/Water Theme)
Generation Z (Best Youth – Under 18 – Designed & Built)
You Spin Me Round (Most Kinetic)
Pageantry (People’s Choice – Crowd Favorite)
Cruz Control (Best in Show)
