The idea for "Imagination Takes Wing" came from Audree DeAngeles, a member of both the Museum of Flight and CQA. "I liked the idea of having a soft, fiber show in a museum with many hard surfaces. After bringing the idea to the CQA board and getting approval, I met with the museum's Director of Exhibits, Chris Mailander. He liked the idea and that's how the show came about."
