In October, the Garden will present Origami in the Garden², an exhibition of larger-than-life origami creations by artists Jennifer and Kevin Box and their collaborators. The science behind this ancient practice has been inspiring Dr. Robert J. Lang for more than 50 years. As one of the world’s leading origami masters, and a collaborator with the Boxes for the past 10 years, he has shown that innovative solutions to engineering challenges—from air-bag design to expandable space telescopes—can be found in the principles of origami.

Dr. Lang will conduct two lectures about his work and offer special, small-group origami workshops following each lecture.
Tickets for each program are $10. A limited number of free tickets will be available to Scripps students. Please contact email@example.com for details.
This program is presented in partnership with Scripps Presents and made possible in part by a grant from the City of Claremont's Community-Based Organization (CBO) Grant Program.
