@ Socrates Sculpture Park

Hi all Miwa and I have been invited to participate in the annual kite making day at Socrates. We'll be showing everyone how to make the shopping bag kites. The goal is to get as many shopping bags into the sky as possible to come on down!

From the Press Release:

Long Island City, NY (March 10, 2008) : Socrates Sculpture Park and The Noguchi Museum are proud to present the sixth annual kite making workshop and flying event. This free hands-on workshop will take place at Socrates Sculpture Park and welcomes children of all ages to participate. This year, children and their families will find an excellent new use for plastic bags by transforming this durable, and light weight material into beautiful recycled kites! Kite designs are provided by artists Miwa Koizumi and Marco Scoffier who will draw inspiration from the Park's fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline. Participants will have the opportunity to build and decorate their kites, then fly them in the Park. (more)
