Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 1991
by Hugh Ricks
Thirteenth in the series by Hugh Ricks. The artist's growing success with Fiesta imagery, commended him for a fourth poster following the sell-out of 1990's classic. Here Ricks casts his eye on patterns formed during the sequential launch experience, with two striped balloons partially inflated, two completely inflated and one just launched. WPA-style silhouettes watch from the foreground, lighted by the glow of the balloons' burners. In recognition of the ever-increasing collector base enjoyed both by Ricks and the Fiesta, the signed edition was increased to 1,000 prints - and still sold out.
