April 14, 2019
Making its premier debut in California at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden this fall, Origami in the Garden2 is an outdoor sculpture exhibition of larger-than-life origami creations. Created by Santa Fe artists Kevin and Jennifer Box, the sculptures capture the delicate nature of Origami, a paper art form originating in Japan and celebrated around the world. Created in museum quality metals, the artworks each tell the story of a single piece of paper as it transforms into a soaring bird, emerging butterfly, galloping pony and many other remarkable forms. The exhibition features the Boxs' own compositions as well as collaborations with world renowned origami artists: Tim Armijo, Te Jui Fu, Beth Johnson, Michael G. LaFosse and Robert J. Lang. Stay tuned for exhibition information, including upcoming programs and events.
