Origami in the Garden (Spring-Summer 2022)
The delicate nature of folded paper meets the massive stature of metal sculpture during Origami in the Garden May 7 – October 16 at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
The traveling exhibition features 18 installations of nearly 70 museum-caliber sculptures inspired by origami – the centuries-old Japanese art of folding paper – created by Santa Fe artists Jennifer and Kevin Box in their largest outdoor display to date. Throughout the Midtown garden, look for monumental sculptures – made from paper and wax fabricated into cast-metal pieces – of flying birds, emerging butterflies, blooming flowers, grazing deer and other flora and fauna themes.
