Virginia Wark glues cd’s to “Whirly-Giggles,” her art-bike entry for last year’s Key West Art & Historical Society Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade. The second annual celebration of art in motion is set for May 5-7. “I love that in Key West the kind of thinking that turns trash into art is celebrated and encouraged,” says Wark.

The Key West Art & Historical Society invites artists, builders and assemblers to put their creative and engineering genius to play and on display for the Second Annual Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade, set for May 5-7.

Small and simple or elegantly engineered, teams of any number and age are welcome to enter this pedaled or pushed sculpture parade. Registration is $25 for kinetic sculpture floats and $15 for art bikes, with registration fees waived for Society members. Cash prizes will be awarded for various categories. Registration deadline is Monday, May 1 for kinetic sculpture floats and May 6 for art bike entries (limited to first 100 registrants).

For registration information, event schedule, entry guidelines and pre-parade workshop information, visit or call Adele Williams, 305.295.6616 x 115.

The Papio Kinetic Sculpture Parade is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of the Arts and Culture, and the State of Florida. Additional support provided by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, Historic Tours of America, Margaritaville Key West Resort & Marina and Southernmost Beach Café. Your Museums. Your Community. It takes an Island.
