"With your feet on the ground you're a bird in flight, with your fist holding tight to the string of your kite." Does anyone else have the overwhelming urge to watch Mary Poppins? The World's Greatest Kiting 2016 evokes images of the ending to that classic film, and with good reason — The Stdui @620 will make you want to go fly a kite. The exhibit features kites from around the world, and kites in all shapes in sizes (I hear there's a few that will fit in the palm of your hand, so I can only assume those are kites for parakeets who never learned to fly). The Studio will also have hands-on workshops and demonstrations, kite-inspired performances and internationally known kite makers and kite flyers, which of course are a thing. So, seriously, let's all go fly a kite. See you at the Studio?
