NEW YORK, NY.- Celebrating 'Ideas That Stick,' Television star Angela Kinsey partnered with post-it brand and publicolor to unveil world's largest Artistic billboard MADE OF post-it Super Sticky Notes. Starting on Tuesday, August 3, Post-it Brand from 3M and not-for-profit organization Publicolor, revealed the winning artwork selected from their national student design contest in a big way – on the world's largest artistic billboard made of multi-colored Post-it Super Sticky Notes in Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall.
Angela Kinsey, Post-it Note fanatic and star of Emmy-award-winning television series “The Office,” awarded the Post-it Brand 30th Anniversary Student Design Contest winners and revealed the largest billboard of its kind, made with more than 100,000 Post-it Super Sticky Notes. The artistic billboard is the focal point of a student art exhibition, free and open to the public from Tuesday, August 3 – Friday, August 6, 2010.
The Post-it® Note was invented as a solution without a problem: Dr. Spencer Silver developed a unique, repositionable adhesive, but the 3M scientist didn’t know what to do with his discovery. Then, six years later, a colleague of Dr. Silver, Art Fry, remembered the light adhesive when he was daydreaming about a bookmark that would stay put in his church hymnal. The rest is history.
Today, Post-it® Brand boasts more than 4,000 unique products, and has become one of the most well-known and beloved brands in the world.
