Kite exhibition soars at library
Monday, April 18, 2022 by Tai Moses
A new exhibition will bring dozens of kites to hang in the rafters of Austin Central Library’s atrium, where they will remind visitors of the “connection between water and life in Texas,” according to the library’s announcement. The kites on display were chosen from submissions by over 200 artists for the Sacred Springs Kite Exhibition, the inaugural program of Art4Water, a program of the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association, which collaborated with the library and Terry Zee Lee, a national curator of kite exhibitions. Library Director Roosevelt Weeks noted that Central Library’s location, “where Shoal Creek feeds into Lady Bird Lake and about a mile from Barton Springs,” is the perfect place for such an exhibit. The opening reception is May 6, 7-9 p.m., at Austin Central Library, 6th floor, 710 W. Cesar Chavez St. Several of the featured artists will be on hand to give tours of the exhibition. The kites will hang at the library through November 2022.
