Clockshop presents Community & Unity, our second annual People’s Kite Festival, on Saturday, May 21, 2022 from 2 pm – 6pm, at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, next to historic Chinatown. 

This event was free and open to the public. Optional donation with Eventbrite RSVP.

This family-friendly cultural festival served as an opportunity to bring together diverse communities in Los Angeles through the art of kite making and a day full of joy, culture, and uplift through the arts. In collaboration with the American Kiteflyers Association it featured a “gallery in the sky,” including flying demonstrations with kite masters Kim Wong and the Tyrus Wong Family, Scott Skinner, and Joe Hadzicki; natural fabric dyeing workshops with artist Carly Lake, design/printmaking workshops with Yuju Yeo and Dewey Tafoya, and paper crafts with the Chinese American Museum; and musical performances with DJ Miz Honey P, Johny Miguel Trombone and Electronics, and the Changui Majadero band. Food and refreshments were available from CARGO Snack Shack and some of LA’s finest food trucks.

Artist Audrey Chan created three unique kite designs in collaboration with kitemaster Scott Skinner that were unveiled at the event, and referenced both the social histories of LA State Historic Park as well as serve as a rallying cry to preserve public land for future generations.

This event was designed as a community celebration honoring the communities surrounding LASHP that fought for and stewarded this public park land, recognizing their resilience, cultural histories, and aspirations. Families were invited to come and spend the day in this beautiful setting, with the opportunity to fly their own kites, work on their own artful prints, and watch some wondrous kites take to the skies. 

Community & Unity Kite Festival is made possible by the support and sponsorship of CA State Parks, the American Kitefliers Association, the Resources Legacy Foundation, REI Co-op, Arts District Community Council LA, the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, and Clockshop’s generous community of donors.

2nd Annual People’s Kite Festival Designer: Audrey Chan

In 2022 Clockshop commissioned artist Audrey Chan to design five large-scale Rokkaku-style kites for our second annual Community & Unity People’s Kite Festival in May 2022. The Rokkaku kites are traditional six-sided Japanese kites and are crafted from Japanese mulberry paper. In the spirit of the Kite Festival, Chan designed the message Protect Public Lands, which was hand-stenciled on mulberry paper with a block printing ink. The design is inspired by both Chinese paper-cut and Mexican Papel Picado traditional styles. The stencil images on the kites draw from the rich cultural histories of the Los Angeles Historic Park and surrounding neighborhoods. Storytelling through allegorical imagery, Chan designed abstractions of a Tongva reed dwelling, plants native to the L.A. River, a water wheel connected to Zanja Madre, and Kite Master Tyrus Wong.

Protect Public Lands Rokkaku Kite was fabricated and flight tested by Stevie Choi.

2022 Art Workshops

Carly Lake hosted a natural fabric dyeing workshop using Marigold (Yellow) and Cochineal (Red/Pink) dyes to create your own designs on silk bandanas.

The Chinese American Museum hosted a Lantern Making Workshop. This workshop allowed children and families to learn about Chinese culture by further understanding the history and meaning behind Chinese lanterns.

Dewey Tafoya of Self Help Graphics and Yuju Yeo taught a Design / Printmaking Workshop called About the Workshop: “Trade winds will carry you around the world.” Participants learned about the process of connecting and communicating as a global explorer by creating their own flag that contained a message to share with fellow travelers.
