See the World from a New Perspective!

Birds, insects, and even some mammals are able to fly and soar. Plant seeds and kites are carried on the breeze, and the perfect pass can float through the air. Humankind has dreamt of ways to fly from Icarus’ attempt to create his own wings to the advent of airplanes, satellites, and  space exploration. This exhibition provides new perspectives through which to see our world. Call for Entry Details »
