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 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.

Bring people together through kinetic art!

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 or 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 on a pilot basis three kinetic art sculptures in the mid segment of Carroll Creek.

Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade now displays eight kinetic art sculptures year-round in the segment of Carroll Creek located east of East Street, Downtown Frederick. It believes that its 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.
