Origami in the Garden is a large-scale outdoor sculpture exhibition created by Cerrillos artist Kevin Box. The exhibition at the Santa Fe Botanical Gardens on Museum Hill opened on April 25th. The entire exhibit features 15 origami sculptures. Using lost wax casting and fabrication techniques Box captured the delicate nature of origami, the art of paper folding, in the more permanent medium of metal. A single blank page inspired each sculpture in the Origami in the Garden collection.  If you haven’t seen this exhibit yet put it on your schedule. It runs through October 25th. Admission is free to New Mexico residents (with ID) on Sunday, September 14th from 9am to 5pm.

      Indeed, but IMO, the sculptures trump the view in the photo- though in person, they’re definitely spectacular.

      Pin away! If you want to use that image outside of Pinterest, I’d suggest checking with the Santa Fe Botanic Garden owners of the photo.

    These origami garden statues look really beautiful here! It would be fun to have a garden themed after paper folding. I would want to get origami plants as well as animals.
