HopXscotch Rivalry: A cross-hopping, street race for two!

FIELD DAY at Artscape
Location: intersection of Charles and Lanvale Streets
July 18-20, 2014

HopXcotch Rivalry is two extreme hopscotch courses crossing for one action packed, two person race! Inspired by the success of the Hopscotch Crosswalks in downtown Baltimore, this new project brings playful pedestrian action to the middle of Artscape’s Field Day programing along Charles Street. Participants start at competing ends of the hopscotch paths and must jump fast while staying on track. The two 50’ long courses meet at the middle, presenting an opportunity for racers to bump each other off course. Play in official tournaments or organize your own race at any time! Check back for organized hopscotch tournaments at scheduled times throughout the Artscape weekend.

FIELD DAY is a collection of participatory games, activities, performances and competitions designed by artists, which will be free and open to the public during the 2014 Artscape. Seven installations will be featured along the Charles Street corridor; visitors to Artscape will be able to experience each “station” as simply a viewer or by competing against friends, the artist-organizer or gaining a “high score.”

Curated by: Michael Benevento, Jason Corace and Andrew Liang.

FIELD DAY and Artscape are programs of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. (BOPA).
