Fourth Annual Great Easter Buffalo Kite Festival
Walter Hook

Watercolor, 1979
Reproduced by permission of the artist's family.

Artist Walter Hook was famous for his humorous juxtapositions. "Buffalo kite" is another name for a box kite. The kites above these buffalo are not box kites, of course, but ordinary diamond kites.

--Joseph Mussulman
