A friend sent me a forward about a cool contest the Hirshhorn had had requiring a work be cut or otherwise fabricated from a single sheet of paper.
I really liked the works presented in the forward.
But I had some nagging doubt about the Hirshhorn's part in such a contest.
Indeed, I could find no mention of it beyond the blog entries of other people who'd received the same email (& who also couldn't find any reference to the contest).
I lucked onto someone saying that all this cool cutout work is by one Peter Callesen.
So, no contest, this Peter's a talented artist. Check it out.
UPDATE: Here's another blog, If It's Hip, It's Here, setting things straight in detail. And though I tried snopes.com early on, I only just found this.
Anyhow, thanks to my friend for sending me the cool art and to these folks in the know for clueing us in.
