Origami in the Garden

Loading Events

Dozens of large-scale metal sculptures based on the traditional Japanese art of paper folding will engage you on paths through The Morton Arboretum’s spectacular landscape. Created by Santa Fe-based artists Kevin and Jennifer Box, the exhibition will feature installations, gallery works, and the Boxes’ own compositions, as well as collaborative works with some of the world’s top origami artists.

Join us on Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, to celebrate the arrival of Origami in the Garden with live performances and activities inspired by Japanese culture. Most events will occur in the Children’s Garden from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
