Origami in the Garden coming to Lewis Ginter

Displays of bronze, steel and aluminum sculptures – aka Origami in the Garden – are coming to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden this spring and summer.

The exhibit, which begins Friday, April 13, features “larger-than-life outdoor sculpture inspired by the art of paper folding.”

The displays were created by artist Kevin Box, who collaborates with his wife Jennifer Box, and origami masters Robert J. Lang, Te Jui Fu, Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander.

A few highlights of Origami in the Garden are:

    • 16 vignettes with 21 sculptures
    • some sculptures over 7 feet tall; others are small as a mouse
    • all are based on prototypes created with origami: one folded sheet of paper, no cuts forms are cast in bronze, steel, and aluminum
    • celebrates nature, the “master origami artist,” seen in everything from leaves unfurling to butterflies emerging from a chrysalis

The exhibit, which continues through September, is included with admission to Lewis Ginter.
