Up Up & Away!

March 10 – May 13, 2024

Kites have captivated mankind for centuries, serving a wide range of spiritual, military, and scientific functions, as well as entertainment for both young and old. Many artists have taken kite craftsmanship to new levels, pioneering new forms and spectacular artistry to create a beautiful relationship between us and the sky.

The La Jolla Library celebrates these whimsical air-born objects that thrill and delight us all outdoors, but hanging from the rafters and walls become three-dimensional works of colorful art.

The kites exhibited are donated from Kite Flite Seaport Village.
