Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade is a not-for-profit privately-funded community enhancement project initiated and managed by the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek in Frederick, Maryland.

What is kinetic art?

Kinetic art is most commonly a sculpture that interacts with nature to create movement. Wind is the most common element of nature but water could be another. The interaction with nature enhances the beauty of the artwork.

MISSION & VISION

Let art perform and do what it does best: Bring people together!

Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade is a not-for-profit privately-funded project adding vitality and beautification to Downtown Frederick, Maryland by offering residents and organizations the opportunity to sponsor regional artisans in the creation of kinetic art sculptures and to partner their resources towards the display of artwork in the middle of Carroll Creek.

During eight months in 2020, Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade has displayed three kinetic art sculptures in the mid segment of Carroll Creek.

Since April 2021 and on a 12-month per year basis, Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade displays seven kinetic art sculptures in the segment of Carroll Creek located east of East Street, Downtown Frederick. It believes that the kinetic art exhibit could pave the way for permanent displays throughout the City of Frederick and Frederick County as public awareness is established, and also stimulate the development of a regional mini cottage industry for kinetic art sculptures.
