 May 17-September 29, 2013 

Tuesday-Saturday, 10 am–4:30 pm; Sunday, 1-4:30 pm; closed Mondays and major holidays. Combining two exciting and imaginative art forms, “Kites & Quilts” will soar with color, shape, line and form.

This interactive exhibition will showcase the history of kites from their origins in ancient China three thousand years ago, to their scientific uses worldwide, to their nostalgic and fun-loving use in America as one of our popular pastimes.

The exhibit includes miniature kites on loan from the American Kitefliers Association, Japanese kites on loan from the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, kite-themed quilts by California quilter Vivian Helena Aumond Capone, Wisconsin quilter Kathleen Sweeney and local quilter Linda Stegall, kite-theme art by local artists Karen Eskesen, Ralph Papa, Kathryn Barry, Gil Cohen, Nesli Aydemir and Trina Weisman, and photographs of kite fliers by Steven Bercovitch and members of the Boynton Beach Camera Club.

We'll have a special day for Dads on June 16th, a Family Funday on July 21st and a special day for grandparents on September 8th. You’ll even have opportunities to fly kites... great fun for the entire family!
