[Spartanburg] This event will last five months with several area organizations and businesses participating. There will be an exhibit of kites throughout the Chapman Cultural Center during March and April. For those who would like to become a part of this initiative, contact Jennifer Evins at jevins@SpartanArts.org or call at 864 278-9663.
[Matthews] The Matthews Heritage Museum’s newest exhibit “Go Fly a Kite” will open on March 20th, the first day of spring. The exhibit will feature a variety of miniature kites, most of which were made by Jim Martin, a noted kite flyer and maker.
Most of us know the story of Ben Franklin’s experiment of flying a kite to determine if lighting was caused by electricity, but kites have been useful in other capacities. Kites were also instrumental in the research of the Wright brothers when developing the first airplane in the late 1800s.
Today we generally use kites as a source of recreation on a blustery March day. But to many it is a passion and a hobby. Kite flying is a worldwide sport, recreation, and pastime for thousands of people – from the very young to the eldest, in almost every culture. There are regular kite festivals celebrated annually.
Mr. Martin has been making many of his own kites for over a decade. He is best known for his kite arches and miniature kites. Jim’s miniature kites have won numerous awards and are very popular. He continues to work on new designs. In 2013 he participated in the Miniature Kite Challenge in Seaside, Oregon and placed first for “Best Flight”, second for “Most Beautiful” and third for smallest size. The exhibit will be on display to May 9th. Come celebrate national Kiting month (April) by stopping by the museum to see this interesting and timely exhibit!
The Matthews Heritage Museum located at 232 N. Trade Street is open Thursday to Saturday from 10 to 4:30 p.m.
