Metal origami sculptures adorn the ARB

Origami in the garden

Our local arboretum usually has a summer long exhibit of some art form. This year is a very unique display. Artists created metal origami sculptures based on complex work of renowned origami paper artists across the globe. These sculptures were cast in bronze, aluminum or steel using the paper work as a model. If you look at the sculpture in the upper left, it is (based on my rough estimate) 9 feet high and about 4 feet across. It was first created with what is considered the largest single sheet origami creation of record. It is stunning when standing right next to it.

Additionally from the arb website:
Twenty-five displays encompassing 40 sculptures will stand throughout the gardens near the Oswald Visitor Center. Cranes, bison, horses, butterflies and other shapes are created by elaborately folding a single piece of paper, then crafted in bronze, aluminum or steel by Santa Fe artists Kevin Box and Jennifer Box, working in collaboration with world-renowned origami artists Tim Armijo, Te Jui Fu, Beth Johnson, Michael G. LaFosse and Robert J. Lang.

Quite the photographers nirvana.
