Artwood Derby at SPACES

When: Wed., May 25 2011

Come for the aroma of pine and stay for the smell of glory: Spaces presents the Artwood Derby, a boxwood racing derby held in honor of the gallery's 33rd birthday. Watch in awe as five monstrous ounces of bone-crushing madness careen down the track at breakneck speeds ... or something like that. Made in advance from Spaces-supplied kits, entries will be judged in four categories: Fastest, Hottest Mess, and Best in Show, along with Old Skool for the best vintage models saved from childhood. A live, Nintendo-inspired soundtrack from the Cleveland duo _node will complete the night's Mario-Kart ambiance and give guests a reason to get up and dance. Admission is free, the beer will be flowing, and fun is most certainly on tap. Spaces is at 2200 Superior Viaduct; call 216-621-2314 or go to spaces.org. — Joseph Clark
