Aloft! The Wonder of Kites: an exploration of creativity, possibility and big ideas. Through May 27, 2012. Kites have entertained children and adults for thousands of years, but have also had a profound impact on history as objects of artistic expression, cultural and religious symbols, tools of war, and instruments of science, technology and mathematics. Celebrate the history, the significance, and the fun of these tethered aircraft in three fascinating exhibits: "Kites to Kitty Hawk: The Origin of Flight", "The Rise of the Roloplan: The Kite Designs of Richard Steiff", and "A Second Wind: Contemporary Kites."
