Description: Socrates Sculpture Park and The Noguchi Museum present this annual kite event. Using recycled materials, children and their families draw inspiration from the Park's fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline to build and decorate kites, then fly them in the Park. (Rain or Shine). This season artist Miguel Luciano will lead a workshop centered on Caribbean kite traditions. Participants will produce handmade paper kites, personalizing them with text and graphics, which form poems or personal statements in the sky that explore ideas of flying, freedom, and community.
