PREVIEW NIGHT

We are currently seeking partners for preview night and artists who will highlight the bicycle in some form in their exhibit for the monthly event.

 

Check back in the coming months for updates as we finalize the location for a MiMKinetic venue to host all of the vessels for public viewing at ArtWalk, just one night before the derby.  It will be an excellent opportunity to meet the artists, builders, tinkerers, and makers of these unique human powered pieces.

SUPPORT MENAGERIE IN MOTION

To enchant the hearts of Florida residents and the southeast with the magic created through making and riding folly filled vessels of fantasy.   This unique experience will grow to highlight, for visitors and spectators, Florida's captivating natural beauty, the charm, and rich character of her cities. Uncovering this striking balance of flora and fauna with culture will showcase why artists and makers thrive in our region.

 

The exhibition of local talent serves a more majestic purpose as well.  Through the acts of forming teams, the embodying of camaraderie and sportsmanship, and theatric displays of whimsy, these human-powered contraptions will reveal to our youth that growth need not be an end to childhood creativity. Providing an outlet for the next generation of makers, doers, and dreamers to dare to work collaboratively and obtain those skills which they lack and share those that they may have in innate abundance.

WHY DID WE START THE DERBY?

Build a human-powered contraption and participate in the fun! Read more about "How We Built a Bike Boat".
