Origami in the Garden

Exhibition Website

Oct 19 2016 - Apr 23 2017

Origami in the Garden is a monumental outdoor sculpture exhibition created by American artists Kevin and Jennifer Box. The exhibition is a partnership between Artis—Naples and the Naples Botanical Garden. These distinctive creations, from giant paper cranes to a life-size Pegasus, are well known in public and private art collections worldwide. Motivated by the impermanence of paper, Kevin Box pioneered a new method of capturing its delicate detail into museum-quality metals utilizing lost wax casting and fabrication techniques. Origami is the art of paper folding, and each sculpture in the Origami in the Garden collection began with a single piece of paper. Five sculptures and about 40 unfolded pieces of origami will be on display at The Baker Museum with nearly 30 more sculptures at the Garden.
