Visions of Lewis and Clark is a traveling kite exhibition first commissioned during the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery Bicentennial Commemoration. It includes 30 kites built by professional kite makers from across the nation who were inspired by journal entries written during the famed expedition.

These kites can now be seen at designated sites in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area from May 3, 2014 until August 20, 2014.

For more information about the kites, the artists and the locations hosting the kites for this expo, please visit the exhibitions website at: www.lewisandclarkkites.org
