  • Overview

    The Origami in the Garden2 exhibit will be open from May to September. Unfold your imagination this summer with special programing and events alongside these beautiful origami sculptures.

    At the opening ceremony, guests will have the opportunity to ponder origami’s simple messages and learn its history through interpretive signage, hands-on paper demonstrations, and educational programs.

    Origami means “folding paper” in Japanese. Origami in the Garden2 tells the story of this art form through a traveling collection of metal sculptures, displayed outdoors in public gardens and museums. Each sculpture is inspired by a blank piece of paper that has been transformed into museum-quality metal and tells the story of creativity and the art of making something out of nothing.
