Art Buggy Derby – Philadelphia 4/29!


Philadelphia makers! Mark your calendars – Sunday, April 29th 2007 @ 1PM, Art buggy derby with MakePhilly!

MakePhilly is holding it’s second Art Buggy Derby. Check out this video from the first one. To enter the derby, just take everyday items (such as those destined for a landfill) and assign them a new role in life. Use an old skateboard or tricycle for the Buggy base or recycle wallpaper for a canvas. Then grab your foot-powered buggy, race it, create art in motion and win fame & glory (oh and a little ka-ching too). Sunday, April 29th 2007 @ 1PM, Philadelphia.

The Art Buggy Derby is both an intense race of SPEED and a fierce competition of INGENUITY. It’s about building the fastest buggy that will cruise across the finish line first. But it’s also about building a buggy that creates art during the journey of the race. Art that will wow the judges after the smoke settles. This is the riddle of the Art Buggy Derby — a buggy can cross the finish line second and still win the race on account of the art it created during the race.
