Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade

Carroll Creek, Frederick MD


Since its inception in 1993 in Frederick, Maryland and as its name suggests, the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek has made Carroll Creek part of its mission.

Its first major donation contributed to the Carroll Street Bridge Mural in 1994, and its members have since devoted countless volunteer-hours toward various community projects such as Festival of the Arts, Color on the Creek, and Sailing through the Winter Solstice.

The Rotary Club of Carroll Creek initiated and now manages Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade, which is a not-for-profit privately-funded project that represents a natural evolution in its mission to rejuvenate and beautify Downtown Frederick by displaying kinetic art sculptures 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.

Starting in April 2021, Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade intends to display kinetic art year around in the segment of Carroll Creek located east of East Street, Downtown Frederick. It will exhibit up to eight kinetic art sculptures, all separated by over 100 feet and adding much vibrancy to the area by expressing a rich blend of history, artistry, inspiration, and enjoyment.

See the map below for the positions of the coming artwork.
