It’s hard to believe but SPACES gallery is celebrating its 40th birthday. Marking the occasion is SPACES’ creative competition, Artwood Derby, where each participant crafts his/her own fastest, wackiest and most outrageous pinewood derby car to be raced and powered by nothing but gravity. The 36-foot-long track boasts a four-foot vertiginous drop. (Yes, had to look that one up. It means “dizzying,” so not for the faint of heart.)
Once race results have been tallied, trophies for Fastest, Corniest, Hottest Mess and Best in Show will be awarded. Cars will be on display at SPACES before the races. Racing begins at 3pm.
Admission for spectators is free but it costs $10 to enter, including a pinewood derby car kit available the day of the event, or pay just $5 to enter your own pre-made wacky car.
