This free, family-friendly event, produced by BoyntonArts, the City’s Public Arts Program, will be held in Downtown Boynton and feature one-of-a-kind indoor and outdoor kinetic art experiences, installations, and displays from both local and international artists. The event will include food trucks, live music, artist talks, and video rooms. A unique art form, kinetic artwork moves or gives the impression of moving.
The Kinetic Biennial will feature the work of eighteen artists inside the Boynton Beach Arts & Cultural Center (125 E. Ocean Ave.). Thirteen new outdoor kinetic sculptures and opt art vinyl murals will be displayed through November 2023 in Downtown Boynton from City Hall (100 E. Ocean Ave.) at Seacrest Blvd. to the Intracoastal Marina on East Ocean Ave.
“After hosting five Kinetic Biennials, Boynton Beach is now the world leader in presenting kinetic art as a public event,” said Glenn Weiss, the City of Boynton Beach’s Public Arts Manager. “Attendees will be immersed in art and music throughout the weekend, and those unable to attend can experience thirty-four outdoor sculptures and murals through November 2023.”
The 2023 International Kinetic Biennial is the world’s only continuous cultural event dedicated to the creative overlap of art, technology, and motion, and the only city for tourists and residents to wander among outdoor kinetic sculptures year-round. The Biennial demonstrates the interconnectedness of art and technology and leverages human fascination with movement.
