This exciting exhibitions features larger-than-life origami sculptures and is officially open at Atlanta Botanical Garden
Atlanta Botanical Garden has become renowned for its unmissable art exhibitions, collaborating with incredible contemporary artists to give their pieces new meaning, coinciding with the stunning botanical displays on their enchanting grounds. Their newest exhibition is no exception, with these giant origami structures scattered around the garden for the entire summer.
Origami in the Garden features 18 installations of nearly 70 museum-quality metal sculptures inspired by the Japanese art of folding paper that are the creations of Santa Fe artists Kevin and Jennifer Box.
Throughout the Garden will be large-scale sculptures of flying birds, emerging butterflies, grazing deer, floating boats and other creative models. The highlight of the show will be “Master Peace,” a 25-foot-tall sculpture of hundreds of stainless steel origami peace cranes towering over Howell Fountain.
Origami in the Garden features Kevin Box’s own compositions as well as collaborations with world-renowned origami artists Te Jui Fu, Beth Johnson, Michael G. LaFosse and Robert L. Lang. All are larger than life, some more than 20 feet tall, and all based on prototypes created with origami – one folded sheet of paper with no cuts.
You can catch Origami in the Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden from May 7 until October 16. However, there’s so much going on at the Atlanta Botanical Garden to get you geared up for this unmissable summer exhibition.
