HopXcotch Rivalry was two extreme hopscotch courses crossing for one action packed, two person race. Inspired by the success of my Hopscotch Crosswalks in downtown Baltimore, this project brought playful pedestrian action to the middle of Artscape’s Field Day programing along Charles Street. Participants started at competing ends of the yellow and teal hopscotch paths had to jump fast while staying on track. The two 50’ long courses met at the middle, presenting an opportunity for racers to bump each other of course. The easy-to-understand and play game was enhanced with organized hopscotch tournaments at scheduled times throughout the Artscape weekend.

Special thanks to the HopXcotch Rivalry tireless referees Melvin Thomas and Jake Lasovick.
