A 3-round pageant to determine who shall be the new Rutabaga Queen who will reign in glory over the 2020 Kinetic Grand Championship Kinetic Sculpture in Place.
The Rutabaga Queens have stewarded the historic Kinetic Grand Championship through seemingly insurmountable challenges many times since a few of them formed the nonprofit Kinetic Universe in 2007 and assumed responsibility for running the internationally renowned three-day art race, so perhaps it can be said that 2020 is business as usual in the Kinetic Kingdom.
Queen Betty Crafter, crowned in 2019, says that “In the Kinetic Universe, we live by the word kinetic, meaning movement. If racers come across an obstacle, they find a way around it. We Queens have been sent the ultimate obstacle. In the spirit of Kinetics, we are thinking on our feet and getting creative with the Remote-abaga Ball! I can’t wait to have the honor of crowning this year’s Queen!”
