VISTA — Eight artists will unveil their visions of “kites” for the second sculpture exhibit to be showcased downtown. The exhibit takes flight May 24 at 11 a.m. in conjunction with the Vista Village Chocolate Festival.
Members of the Public Arts Commission will host a children’s kite art project for $5 each, which will be available to the first 100 kids. Members of the San Diego Kite Club will have various kite displays on the athletic fields at the corner of Main Street and Citrus.
This year’s winning artists include Mindy Rodman and Paul White with “Miro Kite”; Robert Maya with “Magic Kite Ride”; Benjamin Lavender with “Kite of Paradise”; Buddy Smith with “Calder Revisited”; Josh Bowman with “Round and Round We Go”; Robert Rochin with “Flock of Kites”; Charles Bronson with “Dance of the Butterfly”; and Melissa Ralston with “Wind Goddess.”
Two kites were installed May 15. “Miro Kite” was installed at the Vista Transit Center and “Kite of Paradise” was installed on the corner of Main and Vista Village Drive.
The purpose of the Public Arts Commission is to promote and support the public display and public appreciation of art in the city of Vista. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Law Library Conference Room at City Hall.
