Art sled rally

Craft & Design Home

Minneapolis’ third annual Art Sled Rally will be held on January 30th at 2pm.

Art Sled: any contraption built to slide down a snowy slope in the most fashionable, ridiculous or artistic way. Outrigger sleds, monster sleds, rocket sleds, tandem sleds, sleds from the High Veldt, leopard-skinned or snake-linked sleds, sleds that fly, hop, or go uphill, and sleds that do a few other things.

Last year’s rally (video above) featured some awesome ‘sleds’ like a tumbling giant icosahedron and a Sisyphus rolling a fake boulder up a hill. If you need help building your sled, they’re holding a free workshop the weekend before.
