Abstract (Document Summary)

"It shows an incredible side to Baltimore," said Pete Hilsee, director of communications for the museum and a co-pilot of the Gandhi-topped elephant, named Bumpo. "One of the greatest things is coming across people who don't expect to see a 15-foot poodle racing across the street in the middle of the day."

It was one of 31 vehicles entered in the eighth annual Kinetic Sculpture Race, sponsored by the American Visionary Art Museum. 2.
