San Antonio Botanical Garden - OrigamiintheGarden

The San Antonio Botanical Garden is excited to announce its newest exhibition, OrigamiintheGarden², on display September 19, 2020 – May 9, 2021. Making its Texas debut, this incredible outdoor sculpture exhibition created by Santa Fe artists, Jennifer and Kevin Box, captures the delicate nature of the origami paper art form in museum quality metals. Displayed within beautiful garden settings are examples of what can be folded from a single piece of paper such as soaring birds, gliding airplanes, galloping ponies, floating boats, and emerging butterflies. The exhibition features Box’s 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.

The Botanical Garden will offer a variety of dedicated programs to engage visitors with the OrigamiintheGarden² while abiding by CDC guidelines for COVID-19. Examples include a curated audio tour, paper-making and origami folding classes, and Japanese cooking classes. Distance learning opportunities for school groups and adults will focus on the relationship between origami and engineering, the roles plants play in paper creating, the science of paper-making , and the life cycle of the butterfly through the lens of origami.

Included with general admission and free for members.
