Meet team Iconic Flying Fish, hailing from Lowell, MA!
Sculptor Jay Hungate has been tinkering with stuff since he was a kid, taking things apart and trying to put them back together again. Most widely known for his gargoyles, grotesques and fine stone carvings, Jay occasionally builds things that indicate he is still a kid at heart. His entry into the Lowell Kinetic Sculpture Race should confirm this.
Hungate’s team, the Iconic Flying Fish, is a well balanced pack of fiendishly talented and brilliant friends, who have been coerced into believing that Jay will not sink his machine to the bottom of the Merrimack River, and that they will not need to jump into the water to save him.
Jay moved to Lowell in 1996, when he married Lowell native Christine Theodoros. They continue to work on their art as they raise their children and enjoy the creative culture of Lowell. Hungate’s entry is funded in part by a grant from the Lowell Cultural Council.
