Imagine playing with something that doesn't plug in, download, or even require batteries. That's exactly what The Public Art Fund and artist Klara Hobza are asking us to do in The New Millennium Paper Airplane Contest. This event will be held in the Great Hall at the New York Hall of Science on November 1, 2008, from 1 to 5pm.
The competition is open to the public and participants are invited to fly their planes in any and all of the following judging categories: distance flown, duration aloft, beauty, spectacular failure, children (under 13) division, and a "surprise" category. The planes must be made from a sheet of 8.5"x11" or A4 paper or smaller. Outstanding planes will be included in a book created by Hobza and the Public Art Fund to be published next Spring. Early registration is now closed, however, you can still register in person at the event.
