Kinetic artists seek to propel the mind to wonder and to encourage viewers to appreciate art forms in motion and learn about other ways they can benefit society. Kinetic Art is created by artists who push the boundaries of traditional, static art forms to introduce visual experiences that will engage the audience and profoundly change the course of modern art













“Kinetic artists seek to propel the mind to wonder and to encourage viewers to appreciate the Art in Motion. Kinetic art is created by artists who push the boundaries of traditional, static art forms to introduce visual experiences that are engaging, benefit society and profoundly change our lives.”

February 6-8, 2015 International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium created by the Boynton Beach Arts Commission produced by the City of Boynton Beach through its Art in Public Places program. It’s a signature cultural event for the City’s Strategic Plan and is key to it’s economic development planning.

The objectives of this biennial Symposium are to:

  • The goal is to deliver an Art and Cultural event that transcended typical art fairs, delivers international attention to the City of Boynton Beach and educated and engaged a diverse audience about public art.
  • Celebrate the dynamic and compelling aspects of today’s kinetic art to the general public, public art professionals, as well as art and museum curators, and gallerists.
  • Build public and private interest in collecting and/or commissioning kinetic art through exposure to its rich historical context and through exhibitions of its various contemporary forms.
  • Motivate educators to incorporate kinetic art into the S.T.E.A.M. curriculum. The importance of adding “art” to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) is to utilize both sides of the brain and to make learning “fun.”
  • Stimulate creative applications of various technologies in kinetic art, including “green” technologies in concert with the City’s Green Building Program.
  • Create a highly visible, bi-annual, international event that nurtures an exciting contemporary art form, while stimulating the local economy, creating an important cultural destination, and revitalizing a local community.
