According to the J-3 pilot, while he was taxiing to parking after landing on the north/south runway, he passed through the run-up area for the east/west runway. While passing through the run-up area, the right wing of his aircraft impacted the wing and propeller of a Cessna 150 that was doing an engine run-up in preparation for departure. He said that he simply had not seen the aircraft and didn't know it was in the area until the two aircraft made contact.
