Origami in the Garden

Morton Arboretum
4100 Illinois Route 53
Lisle 60532

Dozens of awe-inspiring large-scale metal sculptures based on the traditional Japanese art of paper folding will engage you on paths through the 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.

Each of the sculptures in the Origami in the Garden collection started with a single piece of folded paper created by some of the world’s most noted origami artists, including Tim Armijo, Te Jui Fu, Beth Johnson, Michael G. LaFosse, and Robert J. Lang. To recreate each piece for Origami in the Garden, Kevin Box pioneered a unique process of lost wax casting and fabrication to capture the delicate details of folded paper in museum-quality metals.
