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, the Rotary Clock, 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.
Since April 2021 and on a 12-month per year basis, Carroll Creek Kinetic Art Promenade displays up to eight kinetic art sculptures in the segment of Carroll Creek located east of East Street, Downtown Frederick. The sculptures are separated by about 100 feet and add 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 artwork.
“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking,
we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.”
