This year, FIA unveiled new monument signage concepts for the Fairfax District which included the B-25 bomber plane. This signage will be at the main entrances to the district. FIA chose the B-25 to be included as it’s an iconic image of our history and we hope people will question why a plane is on our signage and begin to learn the vast history and importance of our district.
As part of this effort, we invited local artists to design this year’s commemorative poster. Taking the top spot was artist Kevin Hovarth, as he created this poster which will be featured at the upcoming festival. Kevin’s design incorporated key elements of the signage and he also won a $500 prize. Congrats, Kevin and we invite you to share your thoughts on this design.
