Long Description:
The Winged Horse Extravaganza is a public art installation brought to the community by CitiArtFX, a not-for-profit division of Outer Banks Press, in celebration of the 2003 Centennial of Flight. From May 2002 through October 2004, 99 life-sized fiberglass horses with aluminum aircraft wings were decorated and displayed throughout the Outer Banks. Sponsors, either businesses or individual families, purchased a horse, commissioned an artist to decorate it and publicly displayed it for everyone to enjoy. Many of the horses were slated to be auctioned off in December 2003, but owing to an overwhelming number of requests from tourists and sponsors, the 2003 horse auction was postponed, and the Winged Horse Extravaganza was extended through fall of 2004.
