2014 Poster Winner
We are excited to announce the 2014 poster was done
by artist and kite flyer Deon Matzen.
Deon is primarily an oil painter painting scenes from vanishing rural America; old, unrestored trucks, garage sale detritus, dilapidated barns; recording the old sites and nostalgic bygone eras that are being overrun with urban sprawl, without romanticizing them.
“I recently went to Long Beach Washington camping and visited one of my favorite places, The World Kite Museum. We have had a long-time relationship with this place and helped establish a sister relationship with the Weifang Kite Museum in Weifang, Shandong Province, PRC. Every year there is a large festival in Long Beach in August and this year I once again entered the kite poster competition.”
