First day of school

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden - Origami in the Garden

Today we went to see the Origami in the Garden exhibition at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. The exhibition is a series of larger-than-life outdoor sculptures inspired by the art of paper folding. Santa Fe artist Kevin Box collaborates with his wife, Jennifer Box and origami masters Robert J. Lang, Te Jui Fu, Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander to celebrate the art of origami in museum quality sculpture and educational programming.

In the Garden view 16 vignettes, featuring 21 sculptures. In the Library explore four unfolded wall hangings displayed with the four corresponding folded origami pieces.

We saw about a 10 of the sculptures, but it was really hot, so I wasn't able to walk around the entire place. I'll head back before it ends though - it was really neat!
