Wafting on a Heavenly Breeze: Hand-Painted Kites from China

May 22–August 10, 2008. Dragons, phoenixes, snakes, bats, and mythical figures fill the sky in this exhibition of hand-crafted kites using traditional materials—bamboo, paper, and silk. The majority of these kites come from Weifang, the birthplace of kite making. This exhibition will replace the “Beyond Chinggis Khan: Mongolian Buddhist Art from the Rubin Museum of Art” which has been cancelled.
